K&L Notes

From Neil Martin for Wine Advocate: "Served blind at the Southwold 2009 tasting. The Larmande ‘09 has an ebullient, liquorice-tinged bouquet with scents of blueberry, banana skin and orange blossom that is well defined, but needs time in the glass to coalesce. The palate is full-bodied with a lot of extraction -- plush dark plum and cassis fruit with a slightly jammy finish. Age should rein everything back in and there is a pleasing purity. Tasted January 2013." (NM)

    Consistently one of the best values in a Saint Emilion Grands Crus Classé, Chateau Larmande lies just to the north of the town of Saint Emilion itself on a mixture of sand, limestone, and clay soils. The vineyards are planted to 65% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. 60% new oak is used each year. The 2009 vintage is classically-styled, rich and round with good weight and mouthfeel. Sweet red and black fruits here with firm, fine tannins. Will reward time in the cellar.
