Weekly tasting group #202; C9duP 2009 (@ VD): Beautiful bouquet with red fruits, currants, beautiful garrigue and some cocoa. On the palate red berry fruits, cherries as well, a lot of garrigue, some chocolate, beautiful and juicy acidity and mild tannin with still a pleasant bite. Overall a really beautiful, refined and elegant wine in its young maturity stage. No problem enjoying this until the early 2020’s. 93 – 94 for this evening.
Opened up 3 hours in advance of drinking. This wine is practically transparent in color yet on the nose this wine jumps out of the glass revealing tons of red berried fruit, kirsch, licorice and herbs which follow through on the lively palate with a floral and lingering white pepper finish. This is a delicious glass of a well made modern CdP.
