The 2009 is a strong effort from this American-owned property situated on the lower hillsides of St.-Emilion where the soils are a mixture of gravel clay and decomposed limestone. A dense purple color is followed by copious black fruit aromas (plums blackberries and figs) intermixed with hints of graphite chocolate and wood smoke. Full-bodied substantial and large-scaled with intense fruit terrific purity and a modern style this brawny St.-Emilion will benefit from 4-5 years of cellaring and last for 20-25 years.

This expressive red delivers plum blackberry espresso and mineral flavors that drive through the palate supported by firm well-integrated tannins. Savory and toasty with a dark racy finish. Drink now through 2020. -TM
