Vintage 2009 Score Bordeaux, Red 18/20
AOC Saint-émilion-Grand-Cru covers the same appellation area as Saint-Emilion and is located in Libournais on the right bank of the Dordogne. The production conditions are more stringent than those of the Saint-Emilion AOC: a yield limited to 40hl / ha and a compulsory 12 months breeding.
Saint-émilion-Grand-Cru covers 4,030 ha of calcareous, clay-loamy and sandy soils. Merlot dominates the blends of this AOC, but Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon are also vinified. Saint-émilion-Grand-Cru produces 150 291 hl of red wines each year.
Vintage description 2009 Bordeaux :
2009 was, indisputably, a very good year for all of the Bordeaux vineyards. The summer had a great deal of sun and this continued through to September, resulting in a high concentration of anthocyanin and aromas that are necessary to produce quality wines. Unfortunately, this was not enough to produce a great vintage. A good balance of alcohol and acidity is also very important.
That year, the stakeholders and wine experts were impressed by the quality of the fruit: a flavoursome and delicate fruit that was present in all harvests picked early enough. One of the risks of this vintage was a late harvest, resulting in slightly cooked and heavy aromas.
Those that harvested at just the right degree of ripeness, managed to capture the quality of this fruit in a remarkable balance of tannins/alcohol/acidity. This made relatively easy-to-drink young wines which also proved to be ideal for cellaring. Hence, 2009 is not far off 2005, but slightly less ¿square¿ and more open. Other characteristics of this vintage: generally good wines throughout the appellations and types of wine, including reds, of course, but also dry white and sweet wines.
Medoc had a harsher than average winter up until March when the region was blessed with a prolonged period of sunshine, longer in comparison to the last thirty years and excellent for ripening the grapes. April was very damp and May had quite a lot of storms. Flowering at the beginning of June was quick and homogeneous. The summer provided plenty of sunshine, without being excessive. The high levels of water stress and good conditions allowed the grapes to reach full maturity. The cool nights and warm days in September were ideal. The majority of the harvest was in perfect condition.
In Saint Emilion and Pomerol, on the right bank, the same weather conditions produced a very good vintage, although perhaps with slightly too much alcohol for the Merlots. The Cabernet Francs and Sauvignons were better-balanced.
In the Sauternes and Barsac regions, six consecutive months of drought and moderate heat resulted in perfectly ripe grapes, which were possibly even richer in sugar (an in alcohol) than those of 2005. The vegetative stage was unusually good and the cool summer nights preserved the grapes' acidity and potential aromatic. Botrytisation was outstanding, particularly thanks to the rain on 19th September (which was not torrential as had been forecast!) and the three hot and dry weeks that ensued.
Yquem picked its last grapes on 19th October; opulent like in 1990, intense like 2003; concentrated like 2001, magical like 1893, 2009 promises to be great, unless... Only time will tell.¿

Let op. Sommige gedeeltes op deze pagina zijn automatisch vertaald.Les bouteilles sont arrivées intactes mais j'en ai ouvert une et le bouchon est en mauvais état.The wines are kept in optimal conditions , that was to see on the photos the capsules were in optimal condition
It's not my fault if the cork is not good . You only have one bottle opened and perhaps you have not been careful when you opening the bottle and this can happen if you are careless during the uncorking
Good advise wait at least 6 to 8 weeks after sending to taste the wines, it should rest after shipping. And certainly not taste 3 days after shipment
The feedback is not about the condition of the wine, but rather the after-sales service, because everyone knows the risks involved in buying old wines.
Neutral feedback is not appropriate here. you could make a positive feedback with the same comment.
Thank you very much, after payment quick action and when package received it was very good packaged, and product is fantastic, thanks again!
