The full fine tannins beautifully support the rich palate and make the finish very long and plush. A great 2009! Drink or hold.

This is delicious, with grilled cedar, cassis, blackberry and black pepper spice to the fore.

For me it is the 2010 that is standing out in this tasting, but that's not always the case because the 2009 vintage is so seductive right now, as a general rule. This is a wine with huge complexity and clear ageing ability. Tasting it together with the 2010 shows that these are both exceptional vintages doing what exceptional vintages do; bring a room alive, because everyone present wants to share their good fortune.

Terrific roasted espresso ganache and fig paste notes wait in reserve. Very muscular but with the cut for balance. Best from 2017 through 2035. -JM

The wine is perfumed with new wood and sweet fruits delicious black currant flavors giving both ripeness and freshness. The wine has weight and impressive density. A star of the vintage.

It’s a beautiful wine that has classic Figeac style, yet is more reserved and backward than most in the vintage. Forest floor, truffle, blackcurrants, cigar ash and green tobacco notes all emerge from this full-bodied, ripe, yet pure, elegant Saint-Emilion that has good acidity and plenty of length. The tannins are ripe, yet firm, it’s nicely balanced, and it blossoms with time in the glass. Nevertheless, it needs another 4-5 years of cellaring to hit prime time, and it should keep for 2-3 decades.

Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers bags of savory fruit layers with plenty of floral sparks, framed by rounded tannins, finishing on a earthy note. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown
