    Bottle (6)


    "This is both more elegant and more expressive, which is quite unusual in my experience as there is usually quite a bit of reticence. The lightly spiced and distinctly floral and earthy red currant and humus suffused aromas give way to rich, round and admirably concentrated flavors that display an overt muscularity as well as an abundance of dry extract that stains the palate and pushes the firm tannic spine to the background on the explosively long and overtly austere finish. Like the 2010 VV, this is a genuinely remarkable effort and it should be on your short list of '09s to potentially acquire as it's truly breathtaking. I have underscored the advice several times but it bears repeating: don't buy these wines without having the discipline to cellar them." (96 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound #45, Jan. 2012)
