‘wonderful, life-affirming and disarmingly charming’
Neal Martin, vinous.com, March 2019
There is no mistaking the power and intensity of this sublime Saint-Julien, which is packed with juicy berry and even liquorice character on the nose and into the palate; but the generous fruit fullness of the ripe 2009 vintage is balanced by a sprightly freshness and the typical cedar edge.
Age will enhance its rich savoury notes of leather and coffee and integrate them with the plush dark cherry and currant energies of 2009 to give a magnificent, supple and profound drinking experience from 2019 until at least 2040.
