Clos Puy Arnaud, Cotes de Castillon, FR, 2009

$33.95
Rating: 92 | WA
A major sleeper of the vintage, this biodynamically farmed vineyard was cropped at 15 hectoliters per hectare and the final blend is 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon. The alcohol scores a natural 15%. This stunning wine, with black/purple color, exhibits notes of blackberry, licorice, incense, forest floor and cedar along with a hint of toasty oak. The wine is opulent, even sumptuous in texture, has stunning purity and a provocative 45+ second finish. This is another over-achieving Castillon that should drink well for at least a decade or more.
