2009 Pérenne, Premières Côtes de Blaye

SKU #1118643 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 A solid, medium-bodied, slightly austere but well-made wine from 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, this should be drunk over the next several years.  (2/2012)

Wine Spectator

 This has a soft, inviting core of plum and cassis notes, with well-integrated, subtle toast and a light stitching of savory through the chalk-dusted finish. Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon Drink now. (Web-2013)

K&L Notes

Chateau Pérenne offers an excellent value in strong vintages, and we brought in their 2005 bottling as well. Just east of the Dordogne, the limestone hills making up the appellation of Blaye carry great hope to many rising winemaking stars in Bordeaux. 91% Merlot here. Flashy, toasty, spicy wine-fruit forward. Delicious. (Clyde Beffa, K&L)

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.
