Château Beychevelle Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

$109

This is the finest Bechevelle since the 1982. The opaque purple-hued 2009 displays beautiful floral notes intermixed with notions of black raspberries and creme de cassis. The fruit hits the palate with a medium to full-bodied richness, and the wine possesses sweet, velvety tannins, stunning purity, and a layered mouthfeel that builds incrementally, combining power, concentration, density, and elegance. This 2009 should hit its stride in 5-7 years, and last three decades or more. A beauty! Anticipated maturity: 2015-2045. Robert Parker

The colour is evolved for this 2009, the wine presents very well but looks older, spices , liquorice and black fruit very pleasant to drink now, tanins are silky and well integrated, good wine but I don't know how it will be in 15 years...
