Description
2009 Chateau Le Prieure - Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé - 6 Bottles (0.75L)
Red wine - France - 96/100 points, Wine Spectator

The Wine Advocate:
"The best Le Prieure I have ever tasted, this 2009 is a hedonist’s dream. Huge red and black fruit aromas soar from the glass of this deep ruby/purple-tinged beauty. With velvety tannin, a full-bodied, opulent personality, and a knock-out finish with no hard edges, it is already impossible to resist, so enjoy it over the next decade or more."
89-92+ Points

René Gabriel's BDX Total:
"Sattes Purpur-Granat. Rote und blaue Früchte, dezent floraler Schimmer. Am Gaumen charmant und weich, mit Rückhalt. Der lange vernachlässigte Cru zeigt sich deutlich verbessert.
17/20 points

Wine Spectator:
"This is compelling on the nose, with crushed blackberry and flowers and loads of fruit. Full-bodied, with soft, silky tannins and a long, rich, yet balanced finish. Next to Trottevieille. 93-96 Points - J.S."

The wine is stored in a cellar in very good conditions.

I have bought the wine in 2010 straight from the chateau. T.O.
