2009 After a long cold winter, the spring of 2009 started pretty quickly and some of our plots (Clos-Saint-Denis, Faconnières, Monts-Luisa, ..) were pock-marked in mid-May Other smaller storms ensued until the end of July. From there a warm, sunny weather set in, showers interspersed with rare but beneficial. The harvest was rapid maturity consistent with berries. Attractive, the wine displays a beautiful dress quickly deep red and shiny. The nose is very expressive, with aromas of black fruit, slightly spicy. In the mouth the magnitude and balance are the watchwords. Round tannins stand wine charming, but fullness. 2019-2022

               These notes are for the vintage as a whole. Premier Cru or Grand Cru wines benefit the most from being laid-down as they are made to develop with age.)

               The number in blue is intended to give an indication as to when to open a particular bottle. The number should be added to the vintage date of the wine in order to estimate the peak drinking period for the given vintage. This approximation should be valid for wines stored in a good cellar; with humidity in the range 75-90% (necessary for the cork) and with little variation in temperature throughout the year. Wine is a living thing and in order for it to develop correctly the winter temperature should be in the region of 12 °C and the summer temperature in the region of 16-18 °C.

               This variation in temperature is necessary. Were the wine to be stored in a cellar with a constant temperature it would develop 2-3 times more slowly. On the other hand, a too great variation in temperature will tire wine and cause it to develop too quickly - as does all transport by plane or ship. It is not recommended that you attempt to use such means to age your wine more quickly, rather that you hide your bottles away at the bottom of your cellar and then rediscovering them will give you great enjoyment.
