From the heart of the Côtes de Bourg on the Right Bank of the Gironde River comes the 2009 Chateau Martinat. The blend is 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Malbec. This is a big, full-bodied red wine, impossibly huge with surprising weight and a rich, velvety texture. Ripe, mouth filling fruit reminiscent of a freshly baked plum tart. Fresh, lively, and balanced with fine tannins. Drink now or over the next 5 years.
