Smoky and earthy on the nose with herbaceous tones giving this a stemmy quality and leathery notes to the fruit – elevated acids make this tart, light bodied, a bit neutral on the palate, soft tannins, clean finish, fairly fruity, stemmy tannins, a bit short, obviously quite fruit driven (85-86)
a beautiful nose, just stunning, with perfume of flowers and red fruits. The entry is very nice and classy, but from there it shows its weakensss. Nice black berries and with a bit of cool menthol, it 's a bit lean, and short. With more air a bit of cream comes in, but a bit light and not very complex. Still, when finding this wine for under $25, one can get a flash of fair pleasure on the nose and enrty that has more in common with a high class wine, and that is worth the price of this admission alone.
Beautiful balance and integration between spices, fruit, acid, and tannin. Medium-light body. Cocoa and coffee notes. Very elegant.
Un-decanted bottle. Nose had a thin graphite/smoke layer on top of fruit and a hint of floral and maybe herb. Reasonable integration and balance among elements at this time with medium acid and not obivous tannins. Sour almost ripe fruit (black cherry, and other), a bit watery in the mid-palate and finish, with a touch of bitterness. Medium-length finish faded through some oak and tobacco and back to fruit with a slight pleasant bitterness. Medium or lighter body. Dry.
Soft nose with just a whisper of wet wool. Thin and sour in the mouth. Disappointing.
I must confess that the 87 points is not enough for this excellent wine. The bottle I tried was way over 90. Ripe yellow with symbiosis like texture in a pleasant and tastefull way.
Had this a couple months ago. I don't remember specifics, but I know it was a great bottle of wine on a great night. It ranks highly in my memory.

50% merlot, 45% cabernet sauvignon, and 5% cabernet franc. Part of the reason for the high level of quality of Pessac wines in the 2010 vintage are the soil surveys that enable better planting and helps to manage the individual plots better. Larrivet...

Because of both time and space constraints, I am not able to provide tasting notes for the 2009 dry white Bordeaux, but it is an extremely strong vintage. Most châteaux equaled the dazzling quality of the 2007 dry whites. That said, the 2009s tend to... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

In der Nase elegante Mineralität, Agrumen, Zitrus, tiefgründig mit Stachelbeeren- und Grapefruitnoten. Im Gaumen schon sehr zugänglich, Bergamotte, weisse Pfirsiche mit feinen Röstaromen. Gute Länge mit einer delikaten, kaum spürbaren Restsüsse.
