This year is one of the mythical vintages of Bordeaux. balance, power, density, freshness, precision . . .
In July 2009, Neal Martin wrote: “…It has a very expressive nose with black fruits, cooked meat, scorched earth and a slight garrigues scent coming through. Complex and engaging. A medium-bodied palate, quite grainy, nicely balanced, very clean fruit and very cohesive. Touches of game towards the finish. Great persistence. Good breeding and structure with a slightly austere finish. Vin de garde . . . 95”
