Winemaker's Notes

Dark, brilliant ruby-red color. Intense bouquet of morello cherry and blackberry, with subtle oak providing overtones of vanilla, spice, and toast. The palate reflects the aromatics on the nose. It is also full-bodied and powerful with tightly-knit, but velvety tannin. this confirms that 2009 Maison Blanche is indeed magnificent. Despite the abundant sunshine, the wine has retained a great deal of freshness and has a good long aftertaste and balance unequalled since 2004. While the wine is entirely dry, there is a lovely sensation of fruit and sweetness.

Critical Acclaim

"Vibrant, with nicely packed raspberry, fig and blackberry fruit carried by mouthwatering acidity and well-embedded structure. Lots of anise, spice and tar frames the finish."
