2009 Côte Montpezat "Cuvée Compostelle" Côtes de Bordeaux

SKU #1085053 89 points Wine Spectator

 This sports a ripe, direct beam of plum cake and fig sauce backed by lively tobacco and toasty spice notes that linger easily through the finish. Drink now through 2013.  (3/2012)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 This relatively fat, fruit-laden, heady wine possesses low acidity and notes of ripe blackberries and cassis. An endearing, overtly modern styled red, it is meant to be drunk in its first 3-4 years of life.  (2/2012)

K&L Notes

*++V I am a huge fan of this wine. Spicy blackberry and blueberry aromas. Vibrant wine--a great crossover for California Cab drinkers. New wave but finely balanced with some earthy notes. Decant and enjoy with a t-bone steak. A value. (Clyde Beffa Jr, K&L Bordeaux Buyer)

Additional Information:



- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
