The 2009 vintage met the five conditions necessary for a great year in Bordeaux: homogeneous, early flowering and setting (early June) with hot, dry, sunny weather; an equally early start to the ripening process (véraison), beginning in late July, complete ripeness due a warm, dry August and September, and finally dream harvests starting late in September, in perfect weather conditions!
The 2009 Pauillacs are powerful, rich and concentrated: a great vintage for the AOC!
Colour: Deep ruby red.
Nose: Intense, delicate and complex, dominated by notes of leather and wax polish. Jammy aromas of Morello cherries and spices (cinnamon, nutmeg) develop with swirling.
Palate: A robust, rich wine with powerful, ripe, well-integrated tannins. The finish is very long, with spices and liquorice.
