Tasting Notes

A successful wine for the vintage, this blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and 8% Petit Verdot boasts complex notes of menthol, black currants, plums, licorice, and a hint of cappuccino in its stunning aromatics. Dense, medium to full-bodied, with high levels of tannin in a big, full-bodied style (much in the spirit of such classic Bordeaux vintages as 1966, 1986, and 1996), this wine possesses superb purity and serious length, but should be purchased only by those with considerable patience and a good, cold cellar, since it will need plenty of time. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2028.

Provenance

This collection comes to us from Montreal where it has been meticulously built up since about 2003 when the couple decided to start collecting wine.Ê The purchases occurred primarily from the LCBO (Ontario government store) and the SAQ (Quebec government store) on release whenever possible.Ê It was always intended to purchase the best wines possible and the inventory will show that commitment.Ê The cellar itself had proper cooling and humidification systems and was indeed a showpiece in the home.Ê A family situation has caused it to come to us for sale
