Inviting aromas of blackcurrant mocha cocoa powder licorice mint and flowers. Concentrated fine-grained and vibrant with highly perfumed flavors of dark berries cocoa powder mocha and potpourri spices. Finishes smooth and very long with nicely integrated tannins. A lovely vintage for this all-merlot bottling.

This wine now exhibits the evolved full-bodied opulent style for which this 100% Merlot cuvee is renowned.

This wine now exhibits the evolved full-bodied opulent style for which this 100% Merlot cuvee is renowned. Abundant mocha cranberry liqueur kirsch licorice and subtle espresso roast and smoke (from new barriques) characteristics are found in this attractive St.-Emilion. Some of the concerns I had early on were not evident in the bottle although I do not believe the 2009 is as flashy and concentrated as La Gomerie's greatest efforts can be. Drink the 2009 over the next 15+ years. This is one of the St.-Emilion estates that was devastated by hail damage in mid-May. Although the hail storm occurred too early to undermine the quality of the vintage it did reduce yields to absurdly low levels. The result is an outstanding 2009 that has lost some of the tannic bite it revealed from barrel.
