Château Larose-Trintaudon 2009

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  297945

I was intrigued to re-taste the 2009 Larose-Trintaudon having bestowed a glowing review almost five years ago. Now at seven years old I find no reason to change that view. It has a gorgeous bouquet of blackberry, bilberry and cedar, very well defined but perhaps needing another couple of years in bottle to forage for more secondary aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, excellent balance and weight, leading towards a competent, harmonious finish with abundant black fruit mixed with black pepper and tobacco. What a fantastic Cru Bourgeois, one that is going to give punters 15-20 years of pleasure judging by its 'sedate' evolution. Drink date: 2016-2025. Score - 91. (Neal Martin,, Feb. 28, 2017)
