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).

Dubbed a "sleeper of the vintage" by Robert Parker, the 2009 Château L'Estang offers pure, nicely delineated flavors of red berry and cassis, gently layered over fine-grained tannins. Decidely stylish.

This is another new chateau for us. Dark color, medium to full-bodied, with sweet, but firm, tannins. Hints of mocha, nice ripeness. Long finish.

The 2009 vintage of this stunner from the home estate of star consulting winemaker Stephane Derenoncourt is dark, almost inky in color, with ripe, dark berry fruit and new oak on the nose. It is full-bodied with excellent concentration and flavors of cassis, vanilla, and earth on the palate. Robert Parker has described the wines from this estate as "hedonistic" in past vintages and the 2009 continues that trend. We tasted many Right Bank wines that were over the top, but this was showing perfect balance with excellent length and good acidity on the finish.
