Chateau de Chantegrive 2009
Pairs well with red meats, game birds, poultry, and mildly strong cheeses.
A major sleeper of the vintage, this blend of equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot is another "best ever" performance. Notes of tobacco leaf, hot rocks, sweet kirsch and black currants are impressively displayed in this medium to full-bodied, velvety textured, very seductive style of wine. Drink it over the next decade.
Solidly packed tannins, very firm and structured, a feeling of considerable extract as well as a high toast content.
Barrel Sample: 89-91 Points
