2009 Domaine du Bouscat "La Gargone," Bordeaux Supérieur

SKU #1088125 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The remarkable 2009 Bouscat La Gargone, which is even better from bottle than it was from barrel, is a blend of 60% Merlot, 20% Malbec, 18% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon. Consultant Claude Gros certainly got things right, as this tips the scales at a California-like 15.9% natural alcohol. An absolutely sensational nose of white chocolate intermixed with blackberry jam, licorice, incense and white flowers soars from the glass of this opaque, full-bodied, sensationally concentrated wine that has no hard edges. Drink it over the next 3-4 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (3/2012)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Full ruby-red. Rich, ripe aromas of blackberry liqueur, black raspberry, cassis and chocolate. Thick and sweet but with shape and energy too. Dense dark berry flavors are complicated by bitter chocolate and mint. Finishes with broad, horizontal tannins that saturate the entire palate. Remarkably round, seamless and satisfying wine with amazing length for a Bordeaux Superieur. And boasts more energy than most California Cabernets at the same octane level. Inner quote mark (7/2012)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A solid, ripe style, with a grippy edge to the briar, blackberry and fig notes. There's lots of spice on the finish, which stays nicely defined. Shows much better freshness and definition than the winery's Les Portes de l'Am cuvée. Drink now through 2016. Inner quote mark (3/2012)
