2009 vintage. 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc. 60% new oak. A little shy in the beginning, but opens up beautifully in the glass after 30 minutes. Classic old school Saint-Julien. Nose keeps growing in the glass with blackcurrant, cedar and wild flowers with a hint of Pauillac-like lead pencil. Impeccably balanced with layers of fruit, amazing freshness and moderate alcohol (abv. 13%). Very attractive now, but I suspect this will become even better with further ageing and will last for decades. Lovely.

2009 is warm and inviting, with leather and clove, cinnamon and coriander. Wheat bread browned darkly. Black cherry, muddy puddle, blackberry, black currant, mocha. Round and supple on the palate with velvety tannins, black and ripe red cherry, tart raspberry and black olive meeting black pepper. Solidly built, boasting muscle beneath the flowing subtleties. Amazing wine!

Rich, complex, expressive but still have much tension and needs time to mature - a bit to much power for now - a great vintage - the 2012 was more ready to drink

De la mûre au nez entre autres et faisant plus rive droite et merlot à la première impression. Bel équilibre en bouche, rien ne cloche, Encore assez puissant mais avec des tannins quand même très approchables, belle finale ayant de la poigne mais avec un petit côté un peu rustique. 90-91

Blind tasting lunch 2009 theme. Called right bank, totally missed as it had a more Merlot like nose and some blackberries and some violets. Still powerful with grippy tannins, but overall good balance, just a slightly rustic finish.

This one was most mature and open. Beautiful classic bordeaux nose and showing signs of aging. Still years ahead of it.

30+ minute decant. The most purple colored wine I’ve ever had. Wine is very young and has many years/decades left. Unique in that it is a mix of Bordeaux, Napa, Aussie Shiraz, and Spain all in one. Very deep wine with tons of fruit, even some rhubarb! Medium plus finish. Very enjoyable, but needs more age.

Classify under "did not suck". Especially in 2009, it does not have to hide behind its more muscular brother, the Leoville, but, in my opinion, outshines it.
