Right up there with the best of the Fronsacs, the 2009 Haut-Carles is a blend of 90% Merlot and the rest split between Malbec and Cabernet Franc. Boasting Dr. Alain Raynaud as the oenologist/consultant, an abundance of crushed rock, blueberry, graphite and chalky notes are present in this dense purple wine, which is full-bodied, rich and clearly an over-achiever in this vintage or any other. Drink it over the next 10-15+ years.

Rich and detailed. Best from 2013...
