Ch. La Prade Bordeaux Cotes de Francs 2009

Merlot from France - Bordeaux
Review Date : 25-Nov-2011
A 4.5 ha site at Saint Cibard, 10 km east of St Emilion, the property owned by Nicolas Thienpont. 100% Merlot from old vines, the wine aged 12 months in 30% new oak. Dense, dark purple-hued ruby-red colour, this has ripe, plush black fruit aromas, very primary and aromatic with floral notes with fine new oak lift. On palate, very fine-grained tannins provide an elegantly presented structure framing ripe, aromatic dark berry and plum flavours. The fruit is sweet and juicy, but with tight restraint, resulting in a sense of class. A very modern, international style, and extremely well-made. Keep 7-9 years. 18.0/20 Nov 2011  RRP $35.00
