Like a predator taking in the scent of it's pray, I had been leering at this bottle all night. Then she finally opened up and spilled her juices and I had come to the hard realization that I won't so soon see her again.

A nice wine, but not one that moved the needle for me.

Plump, fleshy and ready to drink. Not as structured as the other wines tonight and so sad so but overshadowed.

Wine is at a great place and close to peaking. So complex and not as much ripe fruit as one would expect from such a hot 2009 vintage . Complex earthy, dusty, leather coffee notes overtaking the soft red fruit. Beautiful example of St. Emilion

Very good. Lots of jammy fruit and the usual St Emillion complexity. Maybe a bit young, this year.

This is a balanced lovely wine. Deep fruit, smooth tannins, dark berries caramel finish. Super long finish. Loved it.

#stemilion #grandcruclassé Deep ruby, needed to open to decant, tight at beginning, then dark jammy cherries and plums, seems pure #Merlot, dark chocolate and hint of pepper. Very little tertiary notes, a little savoury sweet marinated meat. Dry, soft entry, medium acidity, pronounced silky smooth tannins, high alcohol. Full bodied and medium+ flavor intensity. Very good. I feel like this wine is overtly alcoholic and lacking intensity of aromas and flavors. There's no precision, no standout complexity or character because it's 14.5 alcohol and it seems like it could use a little mojo or funk. Very sleek very sexy, whatevers, but I'm digging the slightly green and funky Lalande that I'm tasting side by side that's half the price.
