2009 Maison Blanche, Médoc

SKU #1087578 91 points Wine Spectator

 Vibrant, with nicely packed raspberry, fig and blackberry fruit carried by mouthwatering acidity and well-embedded structure. Lots of anise, spice and tar frames the finish. Stéphane Derenoncourt consulting here. Best from 2012 through 2019.  (3/2012)

K&L Notes

The blend for the 2009 Château Maison Blanche is 85% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 2% Cabernet Franc. The Cabernet Franc is usually not included in this wine, but was in 2009 because it came in so perfectly. This is stunningly delicious...blackberries and toasty oak abound. Will cellar well for five-plus years. Fresh and vibrant. (Clyde Beffa, K&L Bordeaux Buyer)

Again, an absolutely wonderful 2009 that will drink near-term in this great vintage. Medium-deep ruby in color, the nose is vibrant and opulent with cedar, white pepper spiciness, and blueberry aromas with wet stone undertones. In the mouth, this lovely wine is vivacious, integrated, well-balanced and full of flavor. Drink this Gem over the next two to five years. This Gem will also be one of our house reds for the month according to Rusty.
Drink from 2012 to 2018

Here is another great value of the 2009 vintage. The nose shows cedar, spice and bright fragrant raspberry aromas. The palate is opulent with nice tannins showing lots of bright red fruits and held up with nice structure.
