Sweet nuanced aromas of redcurrant cherry chocolate and smoky minerality lifted by a floral element. Sweet and creamy but juicy in the mouth; a rather muscular Corton but with the breadth of the vintage in spades. Really spreads out to saturate the palate on the finish with plenty of ripe tannins to see it through a decade or two of development.

This is also very ripe but here the cassis violet and black berry aromas are noticeably fresher. The rich intense and broad-shouldered flavors display a distinct mineral character and better elegance to the dense but fine tannins that shape the hugely long finish. This has the potential to be outstanding but it will require the better part of two decades to arrive at its peak. - Comments: Sweet spot

The 2009 Bressandes weighs in at 13.5 percent alcohol, which is not too bad in the context of the vintage, but certainly a riper version than is typical from this fine estate. The nose is deep, ripe and impressively complex, as it offers up scents of black cherries, a touch of chocolate, woodsmoke, venison, soil tones, spices and a whisper of wood. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and fairly complex, with a plush attack, a sappy core and very good length and grip on the ripely tannic and sturdy finish. This is a very good effort for 2009, but it is not a great example of Chandon de Briailles Bressandes and at this point in time, it seems just a touch less promising than it did out of barrel. 2020-2050.
