While I loved the subtly plush 2010 Bois-Malot, the stony 2009 vintage is great in its own right, albeit a bit more herbaceous, with hits of bell pepper and an earthy finish. Complex with cocoa and dark fruit, this still shows structure and a long finish. It blows my mind that you can get so much sophistication and easy-going elegance - plus the Bordeaux label! - for barely eleven bucks. Incredible value!

Fans of Bois Malot who are worried about the dwindling stock of 2010 - rejoice! We have plenty of the 2009. This wonderful vintage resulted in an earth-driven blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cab Franc that continues to over deliver at an incredible price point. While the 2010 shows more rich fruit, this is an excellent choice for those who prefer reds that display more structure with mineral characteristics. I had this with a simple meal of roasted chicken thighs, mixed peppers, polenta and lacinto kale and it was a fantastic pairing.

2009 in Bordeaux produced wines of lush opulence, and the Bois Malot is a wonderful expression of It's character. With soft, supple tannin and ripe notes of stewed and dried strawberry, blueberry and tobacco leaf, this is a wine to drink now and enjoy!

From 10 hectares of vineyards on the banks of the Dordogne River, about 15 km from the city of Bordeaux itself, 3rd generation vigneron Jacques Meynard produces this incomparable Bordeaux Supérieur. The 2009 Bois-Malot, Bordeaux Supérieur is the perfect expression of a vintage that offers freshness, superb ripeness, and ultrafine tannins. This is full-bodied effort with loads of sweet red and black fruits. A veritable Saint Bernard of a wine – big, friendly, and eager to please. Terrific value here.

If you enjoy steak & claret regularly like I do, an affordable Bordeaux from a great vintage and producer like this is a godsend! It is classic Bordeaux in structure, with supple red fruit with a touch of savoriness, and the soft ample tannins typical of the vintage. Claret drinkers could definitely benefit from having a case of this quality everyday Bordeaux around.

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.
