    There is no denying here, this wine needs a lot of time in the cellars, or a couple of hours in the decanter, but it is a classic. The property is also located in that sweet spot north of Saint-Estèphe, that I like so much. The aromatics really open up after decanting. Leather, violets and incense. Quite an exotic combination. The palate is rich and elegant, with sweet plum/cassis fruit along with black olives. A very smart buy for cellaring.

    Here is another example of a fantastic 09 Bordeaux at $50 and under. This a layered wine with fragrant spices, graphite, cassis and blackberry on the nose. Ripe cassis and black fruit on the palate along with an underlying minerality, spice and a bit of earthy and garrigue notes. This is still Sociando in style with big astringent tannins built for the long hall.

    Anyone looking for a bargain 2009 Bordeaux to cellar up to 2 decades should check this baby out. This husky, hearty wine starts with compelling aromas of ripe blackberries, dark,sweet plums and wet minerals. The middle is powerful and dense with a roasted fig meatiness and plenty of deep, dark fruit qwhich blends into a finish of cold steel. There is no grip to the rounded, fine and ripe tannins which are beautifully embedded in the copius fruit. Decant this for several hours tonight or cellar for retirement.
