CHÂTEAU DE BELCIER 2009 AC Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer
Now tasted from two bottles. This tasty 14-year-old blend of 69% Merlot, 26% Cabernet Franc and 5% Malbec has an ambering deep brick red colour. The intense nose shows earthy, complex, maturing, ripe Damson plum fruit along with some forest floor and rusty iron notes. Dry, medium to medium-full bodied, fairly intense, ripe, maturing, plum flavours with a lingering, faintly grippy, cedar-sandalwood finish. It will appeal to those who enjoy a maturing Bordeaux at a fair price. It has 14% alcohol and under 2 g/L residual sugar. CSPC 18672

TASTING NOTE: This is an opulent, ripe wine that is full of black fruits and firm tannins. It is dense and concentrated with layers of juicy fruit piled over a drier core. It's a full-bodied wine that's still going to develop. Drink now [through 2024]. Score - 90 (Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, Sept. 1, 2016) Price $ 25.95
