Robert Parker 94
more about ratings
A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc, cropped at 27hl/ha and representing 78% of total production. It has a deep purple colour. The nose takes some coaxing so left a minute or two before I start taking notes. Good definition, perhaps less intensity than the 2007 but very well poised. Blackberry, freshly tilled soil, wild hedgerow and dewy meadows. The palate is medium-bodied, here you find the power and the intensity, very focused, a greater sense of mineralité than I have noticed in previous years. The finish is quite linear, very "correct" but it really stays in the mouth long after you have swallowed this nectar. A serious contender for wine of the vintage...it's that good.
