2009 Morlet "Passionnément" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1109251 95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good bright, deep red. Cassis, graphite, cedar, licorice, tobacco and flowers on the nose. Seamless and fine-grained, with lovely precision and lift to the dark berry and violet flavors. Impressively complex and intense wine with a light touch (especially for its 3.95 pH). Finishes with terrific sappy perfume and a tight tannic spine for extended aging. (ST) 95+ Inner quote mark (5/2012)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright ruby-red. Aromas of cassis, black cherry, violet and licorice, with an emerging note of black pepper; lovely perfume. Plush, fine-grained and sweet, with flavors of black fruits, violet and graphite minerality dominating. Not quite as pliant or harmonious as the Coeur de Vallée but very long and firm on the rising aftertaste, with firm but noble tannins ensuring a continued slow evolution in bottle. This very concentrated, densely packed wine possesses very good energy but still conveys an element of medicinal reserve and needs patience. No, this boasts terrific energy and precision. (ST) Inner quote mark (7/2019)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2009 Passionnement (Cabernet Sauvignon) is a beautifully focused, layered wine. Sweet roses, flowers of all sorts, dark red berries, licorice and new leather flow gracefully from this supple, silky wine. The Passionnement possesses lovely textural depth and plenty of volume in a racy, sleek style. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. I was quite frankly amazed by the range of wines I tasted with Luc Morlet. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2012)
