2009 Pauillac Cru Bourgeois
The Cru Bourgeois from Bordeaux immediately offers a seductive array of aromas: violet, spices, and roasted coffee. The wine offers subtle balance without austerity. Creamy tannins coat a strong, dense palate. This very rich Pauillac will gain complexity and elegance over time.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Unclassified growth cru bourgeois Pauillacs are rare indeed, and here is an awfully good one. Spicy oak, espresso and black currants jump from the glass of this medium to full-bodied, concentrated 2009, which is of classified growth quality. This sleeper of the vintage should drink well for at least a decade.
