Amazingly, the 2009 attained 13.5% alcohol, the highest numbers recorded chez Philipponnat since 1959. Unwinding in the glass with aromas of warm bread, fresh peach, mango and yeast extract, it's full-bodied, thickly textural and vinous, with lively acids—Philipponnat opting to block malolactic fermentation—and a deep, multidimensional core, concluding with a long and powerful finish. This is a broad-shouldered, authoritative wine that may disconcert by virtue of its sheer scale, but it is a potential legend in the making. - William Kelley

This has a very expressive nose with white pepper, spice and delicate smoky notes. Being 100% oaked and with no malolactic fermentation, this broad-shouldered wine reveals excellent up front intensity in its ripe yellow fruit. 2009 is the third opus of Les Cintres, after 2006 and 2008.

A subtle, understated version, harmonious throughout and slowly expanding through the long finish. Disgorged March 2019. Drink now through 2034. — A.N.
