Chateau le Thil Pessac-Leognan Red 2009

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

This is quite ripe, with a big core of linzer torte, cassis and blackberry fruit, but well-supported by graphite and melted licorice notes. Offers ample breadth and depth, with honest grip through the finish. A rather polished style for a Pessac. Should settle in nicely with mid-term cellaring. Best from 2013 through 2020.

Deep ruby/purple, its classic Graves nose of tobacco leaf, burning embers and scorched earth is backed up by sweet cassis and black cherry fruit. Medium to full-bodied but overall very elegant and velvety, this is a complex, relatively evolved, delicious and interesting wine that should drink nicely for another 7–10 years.
