It comes from 50-year-old vines and was bottled in July 2011. It has been a beauty in other vintages so I'm not surprised it showed so well in 2009. With the alcohol at 14.5% it possesses the tell-tale glycerin and rich sweetness that comes from the alcoholic warmth. It is 100% Merlot which explains the gushing exuberant black cherry and black currant fruit and hedonistic style of this wine.

Intense aromas of blueberries and minerals, with hints of fresh herbs such as lavender. Full body, with very fine tannins and a berry, smoky and minerally aftertaste. Give this three or four years before opening.

The '09 Mathilde bursts with aromas of blackberry cassis freshly ground espresso beans dark chocolate and toasty oak. Floral notes of lavender and rose petal emerge adding complexity to the wine's generous bouquet. The palate is rich and layered with ripe black and red fruit the weight of which is tempered by refreshing acidity. This is the first of the 2009 Bordeaux on our shelves and definitely shows the vintage--a wine that can be consumed now but give it another 5-6 years and see what wonder evolves.
