2009 Coufran, Haut-Médoc
Soft and fruity with milk chocolate. Full and round textured. Goes on for a minute or two. Excellent for the vintage. Better than I remember. And better in 2014, but why wait?
Firm tannins, but also ripe, sweet fruits, with a fine balance. While the wine is on the light, fresh side, it does have a good, final structure.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This Merlot-dominated wine displays a dense ruby/purple color, soft berry fruit intermixed with mocha, and hints of white chocolate, herbs, and spice. It should drink well for up to a decade or more. (RP)
Solid, with bitter cherry, black currant and plum skin notes framed by a chalky minerality, which hangs on the finish. Drink now through 2014.
