WINE ADVOCATE – 31 OCT 2010 – #191 – (90-93) pts –

The 2009 is just a step behind the estate’s finest wines to date, the 2007s. It was cropped at a frightfully low 16 hl per hectare. It boasts wonderful fresh raspberry and black cherry fruit notes intermixed with scents of crushed rocks and flowers. An unmistakable minerality leads to a medium to full-bodied, extraordinary elegant, dense, rich wine that is seemingly light across the palate despite whit must be elevated alcohols. Drink this beauty over the next decade or more.
