Ch. de Lamarque Haut-Medoc 2009

Cabernet Sauvignon from France - Bordeaux
Review Date : 11-Apr-2012
Dark, deep ruby-red colour with garnet hues. The bouquet is soft and full, the aromas of ripe blackcurrants, blackberries and earthy notes somewhat restrained, though voluminous. Medium-full bodied, the weighty mouthfeel and firm, dusty tannins are the feature, with the fruit a little shy and mellow in expression. Black and dark red fruit flavours sit with iron-earth interest, and the low acidity results in a solid, chunky and soft presentation on the finish. This is a soft, solid and well-extracted claret to match with slow-cooked red meat dishes over the next 4-6 years. Cru Bourgeois property at Lamarque planted to 42% Merlot, 37% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot., the wine with a higher proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon. 14.5% alc. 16.0+/20 Apr 2012 RRP $N/A
