Château Puygueraud Red Bordeaux Blend Côtes de Francs 2009

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Mineral and blackberry skins aromas follow through to a full body, with mineral and spice flavors and a long finish. Yummy despite a tough growing season due to hail. Little dry. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Puygueraud 750ml

Violets and blackberries with hints of spices on the nose. Full body, with soft and velvety tannins and a juicy finish. Drink now or hold. Always excellent value. James Suckling. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Puygueraud 750ml

This takes a few minutes to get going, as a savory herb note leads the way, but then recedes in the face of dark but soft plum and black cherry fruit flavors. Shows flashes of tobacco and mineral on the finish. Drink now through 2015.

This blend of 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and the rest Malbec is from the Thienpont family. (Puygueraud is the estate where this large clan was born.) The 2009 is impressive, but the estate somewhat under-the-radar, since it is hard to pronounce and not exactly a household name. This is a beautifully fleshy wine with loads of licorice, spring flowers, graphite and black fruits. Fleshier and more concentrated than usual, with a longer, more intense finish and plenty of glycerin, this dark ruby/purple wine is a knock-out and, in theory, an attractive great value. It should drink well for up to a decade.
