St.-Emilion 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"Powerful, but smooth, with ripe milk chocolate and sweetness. Very velvet in texture, with just enough acidity." -Wine Enthusiast (89-91 Points) "A balanced and delicious budget Bordeaux from a great vintage. Shows aromas of tar, berry and blackberries. It's medium to full body with fine tannins and a long finish. The fresh acidity balance to this is very attractive. Drink or hold." -James Suckling (90 points)"Good medium ruby. Enticing floral aromas of raspberry, fresh red plum and sweet oak. Creamy-rich and silky, with good generosity to the red fruit flavors. Finishes with civilized tannins, a trace of warmth, and a lingering note of cassis...I find this hard to resist. The best Puy-Blanquet I can recall at this stage of development." -Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar
