A few years of bottle age have done wonders for the sumptuous, plump 2009 Bordeaux and this wine has really benefited. This is earthy and fruity with generous cherry pie and warm fig flavors filling the middle and touches of spice bathing the gentle finish of ripe tannins. Rather opulent and a delicious drink for tonight.

If you are looking for great values in Bordeaux there are certain vintages that offer exceptional quality at entry level prices. 2009 is one such vintage. Nearly perfect weather conditions yielded a large crop of very high quality fruit. The wines are universally lively and fresh with ripe, sweet fruit and fine, silky tannins. The 2009 Priban, Haut-Medoc is typical of the vintage, with perhaps even a bit more ripeness of fruit and richness of texture. A hedonistic pleasure and a great wine to enjoy over the near term.

The Priban has such a wonderfully inviting nose loaded with classic Medoc qualities of blackcurrants, roasted plums, graphite and allspice. Plenty of weight and richness on the palate and a solid finish that belies its humble price point. You could easily pay twice as much for not as impressive a wine.

A very small, boutique producer, with less than 2.5 acres of vineyards, and very hard to find in the USA. The vineyards are located in the Haut-Medoc, close to Margaux appellation. A captivating nose greets you with its sweet cocoa, violets, cassis, a delightful note of capsicum and...roses? On the palate the sweet coffee, and chocolate comes to the the forefront along with cassis, and a touch of spices and earth. It is a generous, pleasing wine, with perfectly ripened tannins and balanced acidity. It is very pleasant to drink right now.

Do not confuse this wine with Pibran from Pichon-Baron. This fine property is near Cantemerle and we loved this wine when we tasted it in April. I love 2009 Bordeaux for their sweetness and fruit-forward style. The fruit overshadows the tannin in 2009 and it surely does here. Lush and lively with red fruit flavors mixed with a touch of oak. A steal!
Drink from 2016 to 2021

Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the M├ędoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
