The wine is an impressive blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc, made under the supervision of Hubert de Bouard. I don’t think Clos La Madeleine has ever made a better wine. This 2009 has liqueur of dusty chalk intermixed with red and black fruits, hints of blackberry and black cherry, and loads of full-bodied opulence yet great structure and definition. This is a sleeper of the vintage and a personal best for Clos La Madeleine, long under the radar of wine consumers. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2035. (RP) 93+
Aromas of minerals, flowers and cool fruit, follow through to a medium-to-full body, with well-integrated tannins and a racy tannin structure. Try in 2014.
This big, solid, rich effort is packed with seemingly sweet fruits and firm tannins, with a bitter extracted feel. The wine has great weight, and it’s a powerful expression of the rich 2009 vintage. (RV)
