47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot.
Getting better every year, owned by Pichon-Lalande and vinified by their expert team. Surely the best vintage ever at this Chateau, rich cassis aromas, plump, sumptuous flavours on the palate, with fine, sweet finish.
"The finest La Bernadotte made to date, this 2009 is an undeniable sleeper of the vintage. Composed of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot, it reveals a dense purple color along with a big, sweet kiss of black cherries, black currants, charcoal, and spice. With layers of fruit, decent acidity, freshness, and precision, and an opulent, fleshy, succulent style, it should drink easily for a decade or more." 90-92*/100 Robert Parker
