Château-Jean-Faure Saint Émilion 2009
|Region||France, Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
Wine EnthusiastRichly juicy wine, with red berry fruits and ripe tannins. It is well balanced with black currant acidity cutting through the dark spice and wood. A wine for long-term aging.
Wine SpectatorA high-toned style, with red currant, pomegranate and raspberry aromas and flavors, supported by lively acidity that brings a racy blood orange note. The finish is pure and lengthy. Best from 2013 through 2023.
Wine AdvocateRoasted herbs that remind me of Provence intermixed with sweet kirsch, damp earth, spice box and a hint of background oak jump from the glass of this dense, plum/ruby/purple-colored wine. Ripe, low in acidity, nicely textured and rounds, this is another wine to drink over the next decade.
