2009 Mylord "Cuvée Milady" Bordeaux

SKU #1084666 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 A major sleeper of the vintage, this over-achieving generic Bordeaux offers up copious quantities of black cherry and black currant fruit and some floral notes followed by a delicious, open-knit, generously flavored, medium-bodied wine with lots of purity, fruit and character. Drink it over the next 1-3 years.  (2/ 2012)

K&L Notes

Wow! This is even better than their 2005. Fine focus; a very fruit-forward wine. Good structure, but the fruit covers the tannins. A great price.

This AOC Bordeaux comes from the northern part of the Entre-Deux-Mers region. The vineyards – planted to 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Cabernet Franc – are in the Dordogne River valley a few miles south of Saint Emilion. Soils are predominantly clay limestone. The 2009 vintage offers a rich, grapey nose with just a hint of oak spice. The wine is smooth in texture, round and open knit in style with ripe plum and cherry notes. A superb vintage and an excellent value in everyday Bordeaux.

The first time I tried it, I found the tannins a bit bitter and thought they overwhelmed the fruit. A month later I tried another bottle and enjoyed it more, so maybe it just needs a few more months for the elements to knit. There is quite a lot here for the price.
Drink from 2012 to 2014

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.
