Tasting: Medoc crus classes 2009

Lush, forthright plum and black cherry nose, with a good dose of new oak. Rich, assertive, packed with fruit and rather dense, has marked acidity and ample spiciness. Not exactly subtle, and despite the acidity there’s a lack of persistence and nuance. But there’s fine weight of fruit here to counter the youthful rawness.

Tasting: Medoc crus classes 2009

Quite full-bodied aroma of cassis and black fruits. Spicy notes from the oak and firm but ripe tannins predominate on the palate. Solid, attractive, full of fruit, slightly foursquare but plenty of length and concentration.

Tasting: Medoc crus classes 2009

Fine fragrant cassis nose, good elegance of red/black fruits, tannins still present but will provide back-up. Good, classic evolution.
