A close friend and I shared this Bordeaux, the 2009 Château de Chantegrive. The blend is 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon. On the nose there is black cherry, blackberry, black plum, black currant, violet, tobacco, coffee beans and earth. On the palate there is black cherry, blackberry, blueberry, black currant, tobacco, herbaceousness and earth. This wine is full bodied with a velvety mouth feel, medium + acidity and medium to medium + fine tannins that moves along to a long dark fruit finish. Please stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia!

Classic case of "I read great things about this wine" that just didn't pan out. I loved all the character but, for me, it was just watery. Maybe this one bottle?

The nose is refined and soft and the palate is, as well. All the elements are there. It's showing quite nice but in a few years, thus will be outstanding.

This was an okay wine for a decent price. I enjoyed it, but not my favorite. Not bad by any means!

This wine has layers of complexity with a balance of ripe black fruits (currants, blackberries) and oak (cedar) with smoke and pencil lead. Crisp acidity and plush tannins with this wine enjoyable now.

Ripe and sweet-fruited, buy finishes dry and long. Ideal with Fred steak, and the redwood canopy! #steakandclaretnight

Tobacco, pencil shavings, warm red currant and cherry fruit, wet stones. Immediate, and good length. Great expression of place. Charming, if a bit volatile.

Think of it as an excellent house red that you wouldn’t be too offended at shelling out $18 a glass. (My....how silly its all become.) A 50% split between Merlot and Cab is how it’s presented but the Merlot certainly dominates and I suspect it’s more a 60/40 split if not 65/35 in favor of Merlot. Perhaps the wine reviews were based on barrel tastings rather than what eventually ended up in bottle. Regardless... Paired it up with some scottadito lamb chops on a bed of braised leek and Israeli Couscous. Perfect!
