Château Pirouette Red Bordeaux Blend Médoc 2007

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

The 2007 Pirouette is produced by Agustin Huneeus, Sr. and Philippe Melka. It is a Bordeaux-style blend of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc with the balance Petit Verdot and Malbec. It was aged in 70% new French oak for 22 months. Medium purple in color, it sports an incipiently complex nose of Asian spices, incense, violets, mineral, black currant, and blackberry. This leads to a medium to full-bodied, mouth-filling wine with ample ripe tannin, excellent balance, and 4ndash;6 years of aging potential. Drink this pleasure-bent offering from 2014 to 2027.

Supple and inviting, from the nose of flowers and dark fruits, to the chocolatey tannins that lick the back of the throat, this is a fully-realized, smooth and most accessible red wine.

Firm in texture, showing a real grip to the tannins around a surprisingly light core of raspberry and espresso flavors that point through the refined finish. Needs cellaring. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Best after 2012.

Good deep red-ruby. Raspberry, licorice and an enticing floral quality on the nose. Lush, smooth and sweet, but with lovely violet lift giving energy to the dark raspberry and cocoa powder flavors. Very broad, generous wine with sexy oak treatment. Finishes with substantial broad tannins and lovely length. Has the guts to age, but thereandrsquo;s nothing hard about this beauty today. Part of this wine was fermented in 400-liter oak barrels.
