2009 Chateau Mangot Saint Emilion
2009 Chateau Croix Figeac Saint Emilion
"Another sleeper of the vintage, this wine possesses exuberant black cherry liqueur notes intermixed with blacker fruits, some lead pencil shavings, incense and plum sauce in an attractive, fat, fleshy style that exhibits low acidity and oodles of fruit. Drink it over the next decade." -Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, 89 pts.
2009 Clos de l'Oratoire Saint Emilion
"Loads of aniseed and black licorice aromas. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a lovely balance of fruit, and everything else. Love the length." -Wine Spectator, 92-95 pts.
