Right up there with the best of the Fronsacs, the 2009 Haut-Carles is a blend of 90% Merlot and the rest split between Malbec and Cabernet Franc. Boasting Dr. Alain Raynaud as the oenologist/consultant, an abundance of crushed rock, blueberry, graphite and chalky notes are present in this dense purple wine, which is full-bodied, rich and clearly an over-achiever in this vintage or any other. Drink it over the next 10-15+ years. (RP)
Blueberry and flowers on nose, with dark chocolate. Full body, with firm tannins and a chewy finish. A little tight and firm now. Try in 2016.
An amped-up style, with lush, velvety linzer torte and cassis fruit, nicely augmented with roasted apple wood, tobacco and charcoal notes that glide through the very polished finish. Rich and detailed. (JM)
