93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2012
(an 80/20 blend of cabernet sauvignon and merlot): Medium red. Sexy aromas of strawberry and high-pitched spices. Juicy and intense, with compelling lift and definition to the penetrating red fruit flavors. A very refined style for this wine, and the best of these 2009s to this point in terms of definition and energy. Finishes very long, with suave tannins and thorough ripeness. Perhaps the best vintage yet for this bottling. Christophe Baron noted that 2009 was "great for the Bordeaux varieties" and this wine certainly makes his case.
