Description

It’s no surprise that proprietor Alfred Tesseron has produced a possibly perfect 2009. Tesseron, who has moved to 100% bio-dynamic farming, reduced yields drastically and instituted a draconian selection process, has produced a 2009 of extraordinary intensity and purity. This vineyard, which sits on the high plateau of Pauillac adjacent to Mouton Rothschild, bursts with dusty, creamy buttered brown toast aromas, cassis, sea breeze and oyster shell minerality, black cherry, kirsch and plum fruits. The wine is super dense, rich, fine textured and supremely intense while never losing its elegance and finesse. Super precision and poise reveal very fine acids, and delicate extraction and purity of fruit. An amazingly well judged wine, the complexity of mocha, cherry, and cassis fruits is supremely alluring. Certainly better than most 2nd growths, this Pauillac is right up there with all the 1st growths in 2009. (100 points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW)
