One of a lot of 375ml bottles I purchased. This is definitely one of the best so far. Wine appears to be in a sweet spot of its evolution. Beautiful nose and lovely bouquet with a deep purple color. Well balanced with integrated tannins. Reminds me of other Margaux wines of the same '09 vintage but with greater complexity. I have 4 more of these to see how it evolves of the next couple years.
Better than the bottle we had over Christmas. Still very tannic, and "new world" in composition. I had this over Christmas with a bottle of 2009 Bad Boy which is clearly over the hill. Glad I have 4 btls of Lilian Ladouys left to drink.
