Les Portes de Bordeaux: Bordeaux 2009

Les Portes de Bordeaux: Bordeaux 2009

One of my favorite elements common to Bordeauxs is their earthiness. Though a Bordeaux is not as bold as a Napa Cabernet Sauvignon, the flavor yielded is exceptional. They typically have a good amount of fruitiness in the palate, but this fruitiness is well balanced within the palate by a fantastic earth note that can range from moist grass to an egg-like chicken coop flavor. This offering is no exception to that rule. It is a smooth, well balanced wine that brings delicious flavors to the table.

The nose was soft and completely earthy. It brought delightful jasmine flower, moist earth and wet grass. The palate was currant, raspberry, lime, moist earth and mineral. The mouth feel was soft and smooth matching the overall delicate palate well. This wine is a find if you enjoy Bordeauxs. Cheers!
