Château Branon Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

$129

Having just had the 2000 Branon, which performed unbelievably well, this is definitely a wine for connoisseurs to seek out. The problem is that just under 500 cases were made...The 2009 reveals smoky, earthy, barbecue notes intermixed with creme de cassis, blackberry liqueur, charcoal, and graphite. This hugely concentrated, intense, dense, full-bodied powerhouse possesses silky tannins, plenty of glycerin, an over the top, extravagantly rich mouthfeel, and a finish that lasts nearly 60 seconds. A potential legend in the making, this wine should drink well for 30+ years. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2040. Robert Parker

This aerated wine had a very inviting and rich nose. The flavors were fruit and spiced with a long finish. Definitely a nice drinking wine now and seems like it could benefit from more years in bottle.
