2009 Hauts Conseillants, Lalande-de-Pomerol
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A delicious, fruit-forward, plump wine with loads of raspberry and black cherry fruit intertwined with hints of underbrush and licorice, this medium-bodied, fat, fleshy 2009 should drink well for 5-7 years.
Since 2005, the Bordeaux Wine Council has been enlisting top sommeliers and wine educators to pick the Top 100 Value Wines from Bordeaux, called Today's Bordeaux. The 2009 Hauts Conseillants landed in the Top 50 in 2013 for wines under $50!
