The 2009 Chateau Brillette is 55% Merlot, 41% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 4% Petit Verdot produced on 40-hectare vineyard of vines averaging 30 years old.
This vintage presents exceptional density and concentration for harmonious ensemble. The remarkably dark-dense hued Moulis exudes precise and intense scents of delicate, elegant fruits. The palate also offers substantial density, quite appealing, somewhat soft and pleasantly scrumptious. Excellent freshness and incredible length.
Made up of 48% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc with a little Petit Verdot, Brillette's 2009 has an opaque ruby/purple color and some serious tannin. This is an impressively constituted vin de garde made in a potentially long-aging style. It should drink nicely for 15 or more years, as this is another over-achiever from the Association of Crus Bourgeois.
