Lafleur Moranges Mathilde St. Emilion 2009
Wine Advocate 92! The early-bottled (after about 10-12 months) 2009 Mathilde is meant to be something of a sexy fruit bomb style of St.-Emilion. It comes from 50-year-old vines and was bottled in July, 2011. It has been a beauty in other vintages so I’m not surprised it showed so well in 2009. With the alcohol at 14.5%, it possesses the tell-tale glycerin and rich sweetness that comes from the alcoholic warmth. It is 100% Merlot, which explains the gushing, exuberant black cherry and black currant fruit and hedonistic style of this wine.
