2009 Petit Chateaux - In-Stock Now!



The 2009 vintage in Bordeaux has received much acclaim, and deservedly so. While the "classified growths" get most of the attention, our tasting team spent eight days in Bordeaux in April 2010 to put together a meticulously selected, unrivaled collection of 2009 petit chateaux. The 2009s are undoubtedly the most seductive, irresistably drinkable petit chateaux we can recall, and despite all the hoopla about the high prices of the great growths, the 2009 petits are incredibly well priced. These 2009s are in CW now with more on the way.

Listrac's deep gravel soils rival the best of the Haut-Médoc, and this prominent Listrac château makes its wine to a classified growth standard, with the flavors of new oak well-integrated into this dark purple, powerful wine.

2009 Château Côte Montpezat - Compostelle Côtes de Castillon (750ml)
2009 Château Côte Montpezat - Compostelle Côtes de Castillon (750ml)
Varietal: Bordeaux Blend | Location: France - Bordeaux
Red Wine 
WS 91-94

Throw this impressive, full-structured wine into a blind tasting of St.-Emilion Grand Cru, and don't be surprised if it beats out one or more of the big boys. It tastes considerably more expensive than its modest price would suggest. To the massive 2005 Côte Montpezat, which was one of our favorite petit chateaux of that great year, the 2009 adds an element of fruity succulence, which is the hallmark of the remarkable 2009 vintage. Deep ruby in color, with dark, roasted fruit, shaved cedar, and new oak prominent on the nose and on the palate, this concentrated wine begs for further cellaring, but is quite delicious now (decant 45 to 90 min. in advance).

2009 Château Dutruch Grand Poujeaux - Moulis-en-Médoc (750)
2009 Château Dutruch Grand Poujeaux - Moulis-en-Médoc (750ml)
Varietal: Bordeaux Blend | Location: France - Bordeaux
Red Wine 

The home of Château Chasse Spleen and numerous other excellent Châteaux sharing the name "Poujeaux," the commune of Moulis has some of the finest, deep gravel ridges in Bordeaux, outside of the famed Margaux commune. In contrast to its very supple 2008, Dutruch Grand Poujeaux has produced a startlingly powerful 2009, with deep, smoky flavors of baked cherry confit, cassis, Provençal herbs. A concentrated, impressive wine that will clearly reward 5 to 7 years of cellaring.

2009 Château Haut Mayne - Cuvée Mayne du Cros Graves (750ml)
2009 Château Haut Mayne - Cuvée Mayne du Cros Graves (750ml)
Varietal: Bordeaux Blend | Location: France - Bordeaux
Red Wine 

Supple and smooth, this is a distinctly pretty Graves rouge, with ripe Cabernet and Merlot fruit gracefully layered over soft tannins. The voluptuous style of the 2009 vintage really plays to its strengths, and combines nicely with the château's excellent Graves terroir. The owner is Michel Boyer, whose daughter Catherine d'Halluin also makes outstanding wine at Château Clos Bourbon in the Premières Côtes de Bordeaux.
