Top notch. Closest wine to Portugal without drinking actual port. Really stunning and held up exceptionally well. In fact lots of life left. Exotic spices, red plum and cardamon. Slightly Smokey and reduced. Lovely wine with Roquefort. Don’t forget to sign up for my daily email offers... firstname.lastname@example.org — 2 months ago
Haut-Bailly Dinner in SF with Veronique Sanders of Haut-Bailly.
The 2009 is such a beautifully elegant, almost creamy vintage that will just keep getting better & better & better. It stuns the moment it hits your palate.
The fruit, silky texture and length are simply stupidly good. The elegance & beauty only happen a few vintages in a lifetime. The fruits are perfectly ripe, blackberries, black raspberries, dark cherries and hints of blue fruits. Used leather, graphite, fresh tobacco, mocha powder, dark chocolate, stones, fresh, rich earth , medium dark spice, layered baking spices with beautiful, fresh & slightly withering; dark, red, blue and purple flowers framed in soft violets.
100 point Parker wine that will get there with another 8-10 years in bottle.
Served with the Cheese plate; Red Hawk, Hop Along & Roquefort. @Mathilde French Bistro
