Saint-Estéphe 2009 Bordeaux
Diversity, quality, and quantity describe this region in southwest France. Bordeaux is one of the most prolific wine regions.
In 1992, Jean-Claude Rouzaud, oenologist and Board Chairman of Champagne Louis Roederer, acquired and combined two Cru Bourgeois vineyards in the heart of the Medoc‘s prestigious Saint-Estèphe appellation: Château Picard and Château Beauséjour. Together, these properties make up what is now called Château Haut-Beauséjour.
This wine has an attractive deep color, the sign of a wine that is rich in phenolic compounds. On the nose, there are massive amounts of fruit aromas intermixed with very subtle spicy aromas, the sign of perfectly ripe grapes. The attack is silky and round, developing density but remaining fresh. Concentrated fruity flavors come through with lovely ripe tannins, providing good body on the mid-palate. The whole is both rich and silky; the length of flavors is amazing, leaving a finish packed with flavor, which is not at all drying. The aging in barrel should provide extra aromatic complexity and roundness. The aim is to preserve the balance, freshness and juicy crispness of this wine.
