Product Description

This is probably the finest Château Bernadotte made to date.
This 2009 is an undeniable sleeper of the vintage. Made from 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot, it reveals a dense purple colour along with a big, sweet kiss of black cherries, black currants, charcoal, and spice. With layers of fruit, decent acidity, freshness, and precision, and an opulent, fleshy, succulent style, it should drink easily for a decade or more

The sorting of the harvest was carried out in the field where a team of 75 pickers made sure that only the best quality grapes entered the winery. Vinification took place in 23 large, temperature controlled, stainless steel vats and malolactic fermentation occurred in vat. Château Bernadotte was aged in 30% new French oak barrels for about 14 months.

Good full red. Redcurrant, mocha and cedary, smoky oak on the ripe nose, with a hint of peppery lift. Lush, ripe and concentrated, offering a dense, thick texture for this wine and a hint of salty herbs. Nicely subtle and perfumed in the mouth. Finishes with suave tannins and sneaky length.

A sleeper of the vintage, for drinking over the next 15 years.
