K&L Notes

91 points, Neal Martin's Wine Journal: "Tasted at the Chateau. This has a deep garnet core. The nose has a deepness to it, a decayed richness that is very enticing, and a decayed, slightly leafy richness. Cooked meats, allspice a lot of cedar. Beautiful. The palate is very finely balanced and the tannins are showing so much finesse. There seems to be a lot of Merlot here, but such a silky texture that this might be the most alluring of all the late-1970s vintages. It has a lacy finish, slightly leafy with vestiges of richness underneath. It becomes spicier with time, very smooth and harmonious and yet returning after an hour it is running out of breath and lost its precociousness, so I would refrain from decanting or allowing too much aeration." (09/2009) This is the second vintage made by May Eliane Lencquesaing, and it is delicious. Superb elegance and breed. (Clyde Beffa Jr, K&L Wines)
