Château Pape Clément Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

$235

...A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc with a modest 13.5% alcohol, the 2009 reveals considerable structure and tannin along with tell-tale notes of burning embers, scorched earth, graphite, blueberries, blackberries and toasty vanillin, and a full-bodied mouthfeel...it should age for three decades or more.

Lovely perfumed nose - lots of fruit and intensity, big and structured - well balanced between the Cabernet Sauvignon and merlot - still has some tannins so still has legs to go and go - tasted it a day later and still beautiful
