2009 Feytit-Clinet, Pomerol

SKU #1121659 92-95 points Wine Spectator

 Blackberry and licorice, with spices. Tar. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a round and beautiful finish. So silky and beautiful. Lovely texture. (Web-2010)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Dominated by Merlot (95%) blended with a small amount of Cabernet Franc (5%), with 14.5% natural alcohol, it exhibits an opaque blue/purple color as well as a bouquet reminiscent of blueberry pie intermixed with espresso beans, black raspberries, charcoal and graphite. Full-bodied, thick and juicy with undeniable purity, a layered mouthfeel and abundant but sweet tannins, this exceptional Pomerol should be ready for prime time drinking in 5-8 years and last for at least three decades. Unfortunately, there are just over 1,300 cases produced. This estate has been coming on strong over the last decade and the 2009 is their finest effort to date.  (2/2012)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Good bright red-ruby. Wild, meaty aromas of black raspberry, roast coffee, minerals, toffee and smoky oak; very Pomerol. Pliant and sweet, with superb depth and an utterly seamless texture to the flavors of black raspberry, mocha and roast coffee. As plush as this Pomerol is, it easily maintains its shape. Dusty tannins spread out to saturate the palate on the long, generous finish. A superb result for this property.  (7/2012)

K&L Notes

*+V From Clyde Beffa: "I bought eight cases of Feytit-Clinet's 1970 vintage for $4 per bottle. The '09 price will be higher, but so is the quality. Should be a great value. Chocolate aromas. Seamless, with a black licorice finish. Pure Pomerol."

One of the great old time names in Bordeaux-I remember the 1970 fondly. This fabulous year and great terroir make for superb wine for the cellar. Tons of blackberry fruit.
Drink from 2017 to 2030

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the Médoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.
Country:

France

- 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.
