2009 Saint-Paul, Haut-Medoc

Jancis Robinson: "*Good Value* Deep crimson. Very healthy-looking. Glamorously deep colour and then just a slight whiff of odd oak and very dry and chewy on the end.

92 points James Suckling: "Violets and blackberries with hints of spices on the nose. Full body, with soft and velvety tannins and a juicy finish. Drink now or hold. Always excellent value." (3/2012) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This blend of 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and the rest Malbec is from the Thienpont family. (Puygueraud is the estate where this large clan was born.) The 2009 is impressive, but the estate somewhat under-the-radar, since it is hard to pronounce and not exactly a household name. This is a beautifully fleshy wine with loads of licorice, spring flowers, graphite and black fruits. Flesh ...Read More »

The wine is structured while still remaining very approachable. (RV)" (4/2012) 92 points James Suckling: "Big and massive wine for this appellation.

2009 Les Grands Chenes, Médoc

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the cru bourgeois estates in the empire of Bernard Magrez, this may possibly be the best wine Les Grands Chenes has yet made. From old vines (average age 45) in the very northern part of the Medoc, the final blend of 51% Merlot, 43% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc hit 14% natural alcohol.

However, for the future, watch those tannins. (RV)" (2/2012) 92 points Wine Spectator: "This is tight and precise, with lots of cut from start to finish, as chiseled graphite and iron notes support the dark currant, mulled fig and crushed blackberry fruit.

2009 Malartic-Lagravière Pessac-Léognan

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Served blind at the Southwold 2009 tasting. The Malartic-Lagraviere ‘09 is evolving into one of the finest wines that the estate has ever produced. It has a more introverted bouquet with dark berry fruit, undergrowth and iodine. With rigorous swirling it still refuses to unfurl. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins. It builds nicely towards a lovely black olive and spice tinged finish that exudes finesse. Superb.

2009 Prieuré-Lichine, Margaux

94 points James Suckling: "Blueberries, minerals, flowers and sandalwood on the nose. Full body, with chewy tannins and fresh fruit and citrus aftertaste. Beautiful polish to the wine. Best in 2018." (2/2012) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The soft, sexy 2009 exhibits a dense plum/purple color along with a big, sweet bouquet of raspberries, black cherries, black currants, smoke and forest floor. Opulent and round with an attractive viscosity as well as outstanding purity, depth and length, it should drink well for two decades. While not one of the longest lived wines of the vintage, it is among the most precociou ...Read More »

2009 Verdignan, Haut-Médoc

89 points Wine Spectator: "Taut and racy, with a delicious beam of linzer torte, dried black currant and roasted fig flavors, all laced with tobacco leaf and espresso notes. The solid, racy finish shows nice length and cut. Drink now through 2016. (Web-2012)" K&L Notes: Situated near Pauillac, these vineyards are planted to 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, and 5% Cab Franc. On the stone lintel of the door's oldest vat of Verdignan there is ingraved a date: 1720! The 2000 is a great bargain from Bordeaux. Great year, and this wine just tastes very good, certainly the best vintage ever produ... Read More »

2009 Grand Corbin Manuel, St-Émilion (3L)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "One of several châteaux in Saint-Émilion with the name Corbin attached, this is a finely made, ripe, dusty wine. It conveys a southern French feel with its rich fruitiness and powerful dry tannins. It has concentration and power, and will develop well over the medium-term." (6/2014) 90 points Wine Spectator: "This is on the tangy side, featuring a nice sanguine streak that runs through the blackberry and black cherry fruit. The fine-grained finish shows a roasted apple wood edge. Not big, but offers nice range and focus." (6/2012) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Grand-Corbin-Manuel’s offering exhibits sandy, loamy s ...Read More »

2009 Sociando-Mallet, Haut-Médoc

92 points James Suckling: "Lots of currants, berries and chocolate on the nose and palate. Full and chewy. Solid tannin structure. Better in 2015." (7/2014) 89-91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby. Blackcurrant, licorice, underbrush and smoky oak on the inviting nose, with hints of tobacco and minerals. Dense and chewy in the mouth, with brooding, ripe flavors of blackberry, dark plum and smoky, chocolatey oak given lift by firm acidity. Finishes with subtle length but its assertive tannins will require at least several years of patience once this wine is released. I'm a big fan of this overachieving property, w ...Read More »

2009 Trotanoy, Pomerol

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An absolutely prodigious wine, the dense purple 2009 Trotanoy exudes extraordinary notes of minerals, forest floor, sweet black currants and black cherry jam along with floral notes and graphite. Very full-bodied, with silky tannins, fabulous opulence and palate presence, this terrific wine should be at its best in 7-10 years and last for 20 or more. Think of it as a more concentrated, 'bigger' version of the extraordinary 1998. 98+ points. (RP)" (2/2012) 98 points Wine Spectator: "This sports a dark, chewy side for now, with overt charcoal and roasted apple wood notes, along with p ...Read More »

2009 Branas Grand Poujeaux, Moulis New!
2009 Branas Grand Poujeaux, Moulis

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A sleeper of the vintage from the backwater appellation of Moulis, the 2009 Branas Grand Poujeaux is a blend of 50% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot. A big-time wine, opaque purple in color, with loads of cassis, smoke, incense and licorice as well as an earthiness reminiscent of a St.-Estephe, this wine is full-bodied and long, with sweet tannin and an overall classic constitution. It can be approached now but should age nicely for 15-20 years. (RP)" (12/2011) 87-90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Dark ruby. Ripe, showy aromas of blackberry syrup, coffee liqueur and to ...Read More »

2009 Montrose, St-Estèphe 6-pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

100 points James Suckling: "Blueberries, currants and Indian spices on the nose follow through to a full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a lovely finish. It's intense and refined. A beauty. It goes on for minutes. Speechless. Better and cleaner than the great 1990. Try in 2022." (2/2012) 100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A colossal effort, the 2009 Montrose represents a hypothetical blend of the monumental duo of 1989 and 1990 combined with the phenomenal 2003...the overall impression is one of massive blackberry, black currant and mulberry fruit intermixed with forest floor, damp earth, crushed rocks and a hint of ...Read More » 



2009 Siran, Margaux (3L)

93 points James Suckling: "Blueberries and minerals, with floral undertones follow through to a full body and velvety tannins and a juicy finish. Subtle and structured. Try after 2018." (2/2012) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the vertical held at the property, the 2009 Château Siran no longer displays the sur-maturité that was evident just after bottling and seems to have settled down with scents of black plum, spice, blackcurrants and graphite, the latter lending it an almost Brane-Cantenac like veneer. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, nicely focused with that graphite theme continuing. Fr ...Read More »

2009 Petit Lion Marquis de las Cases, St-Julien

91 points James Suckling: "Blueberries and minerals on the nose, with hints of flowers. Full body, with firm and chewy tannins and a fresh finish. A little linear in structure, but very fine. Second wine of Leoville Las Cases. Try in 2018." (2/2012) 88-91 points Wine Spectator: "*Barrel Tasting* Currants on toasted bread character on the nose and palate. Medium- to full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a medium finish. Balanced and attractive. This is the new name for the second wine. (JS, Web-2010)" Jancis Robinson: "Very concentrated and rich – very 2009 on the nose. Tannins already softening but they are there, well hidden. Round ...Read More »
