Chateau Loudenne Medoc Cru Bourgeois

Loudenne has made countless star appearances in my corporate tastings and masterclasses this year because Bordeaux of such accurate fruit profile and tannin chassis at this price is a tough find. All hail the great 2009 vintage! This is a blend from across the Medoc, showcasing the character of Bordeaux better than anything else I’ve found lately under $50. Blackcurrant fruit with notes of tobacco, cedar and a hint of dark chocolate, driven by classic cabernet tannins of impressive, mouthfilling, fine-grained structure and surprising endurance of persistence.
