Château La Providence Pomerol 2009
Fremragende Pomerol (få flasker tilbage i den gode årgang 2009). Flotte anmelderser hele vejen rundt. Kan drikkes nu, men kan uden problemer gemmes frem til 2040.
* 95 points James Suckling *
A wine with a deep nose of blueberries, blackberries, dark chocolate, nutmeg and vanilla bean. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a beautiful depth of fruit. Very attractive texture to this wine.
* 95 points Wine Enthusiast *
Densely fruity wine, all sweetness and richness without too much weight. It does have power, a dark core, but it is the sweet balance that is so attractive. There is a layer of acidity as well, giving freshness to the final character of the wine. (RV)
* 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate *
Ths 100% Merlot cuvée from Christian Moueix is an atypically masculine, full-bodied, muscular wine for Moueix. This opaque blue/purple wine displays notes of black cherries, truffles, damp earth and licorice. Full-bodied, very deep and powerful, it will need of 6-8 years of cellaring but should keep for 25-30 years. It has the potential to be the best Providence to date. (RP)
* 94 points Vinous *
The 2009 Providence has a complex and refined bouquet with brambly red fruit, mulberry, black truffle and light tobacco scents. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, well judged acidity, very harmonious and poised with an elegant, tobacco and white pepper tinged finish that becomes ferrous with aeration. This feels full mature but it should continue to drink well for a number of years. What a great showing from the Pomerol cru that is now part of La Fleur-Pétrus. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners’ 2009 Bordeaux tasting. (NM)
* 94 points Wine Spectator *
Captivating, with Lapsang souchong tea and incense flavors up front, followed by creamy-textured plum and fig sauce, blackberry preserve and ganache notes, which sail through the long, smoky and creamy finish.
