2009 Plince, Pomerol (Previously $50)

SKU #1108250 89-92 points Wine Spectator

 Aromas of boysenberry syrup with hint of licorice follow through to a full body, with a dense palate and slightly chewy tannins. Juicy wine, with a slightly rustic edge. But I like it. (Web Only- 2010)

90 points Wine Enthusiast

 The potential for a juicy, fruity wine lurks here beneath the youthful, extracted tannins. The wine certainly has density, with its rich structure coming through strongly. However, it needs aging over at least 10 years.  (2/ 2013)

87-89 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Inky purple. Pure aromas of red cherry, blackberry jelly and coffee. A supple, sweet and tasty midweight, with expressive flavors of redcurrant, cocoa and smoky oak. There are still some youthfully aggressive tannins on the moderately long finish, but the wine's acidity is nicely integrated, giving it a savory quality and considerable early appeal.  (6/ 2010)

Jancis Robinson

 Dark glowing cherry red. Rich, plump and a little oaky at this stage. But quite delicate fruit on the palate. Very polished with some attractive minerality. Refreshing.  (4/ 2010)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 A big, chunky, somewhat corpulent wine with delicious black currant and black cherry fruit intermixed with some damp earth, truffle and forest floor, this 2009 is round, medium to full-bodied, dark plum/purple, and best drunk over the next 10-12 years.  (2/ 2012)

Tasted on August 21, 2012. Blackberry fruit and toasty oak dominate this lovely wine--so sweet and sexy. A very well-balanced wine that shows great now but will age effortlessly for 15 years. SO GOOD.

This is surprisingly meaty and dense with a rather fat, chewey texture to the toasty mocha and berry flavors. The ripe and deep middle ends in a somewhat gripping finish of iron and sweet fruit. Decant tonight or cellar 10 to 15 years.

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.
