The Chateau Loudenne 2009 is a Cru Bourgeois from Medoc with a beautiful deep and brilliant color. The nose is complex and develops notes of vanilla, toast and some candied fruit. On the palate, the attack is frank. The mid-palate has rounded tannins that balance with the fruit. The wine ends with a lingering finish.
Parker : 86 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
More than half Merlot and the balance mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, this is an elegant, well-balanced, finesse style of wine with a dark ruby color and some notes of cranberry and black cherry fruit as well as red currants and dusty, loamy soil undertones. It is medium-bodied and best drunk over the next decade.
