2009 Lestruelle, Médoc

SKU #1087583 90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Nicely toasty, with vanilla and espresso notes up front, but the core of raspberry, blackberry and boysenberry fruit rushes in behind it, with a long, licorice-filled finish. Should settle in nicely. Stéphane Derenoncourt consulting here. Best from 2012 through 2017. Inner quote mark (3/2012)

This was the “value” favorite of the tasting and for good reason. The nose displays lots of oak spice and black fruit, while the palate is filled with tons of blackberry and spice, with enough structure to keep the wine from feeling flabby. The long finish is dominated by heady black fruit, and there is plenty of structure here for at least five years of aging.

Sweet blackberry fruit aromas and lots of spice on the palate. Very spicy blackberry flavors. The fruit overshadows the fine tannins here. Lush mouthfeel. A superb value. Buy cases of this.
