..the 2009 appears to be the greatest wine ever made at the estate...Viscous and multi-dimensional with silky, sweet tannin, massive fruit concentration & full-bodied power, there are nearly 4,000 cases of this thick, juicy, perfect Clinet.
Aromas of dark fruits, hazelnut and dark chocolate, follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins that are polished and refined. Beautiful depth of fruit to this.
Very lush and exotic, boasting plum sauce, crushed fig, warm raspberry confiture and steeped black currant fruit all dripping over a racy but buried graphite spine. The long, dark finish has plenty of stuffing for the long haul...
..hefty and penetrating, with lovely depth and breadth to the black fruit flavors. A bit youthfully medicinal today and not yet particularly complex but shows the sweetness of the vintage in spades. Finishes with substantial ripe tannins..
...Spicy and meaty on the nose. Very smooth tannins and full of lovely pure fruit. Tannins very well handled and (deceptively?) rounded. Just fresh enough.
