Bordeaux 2009 from bottle: TNs from guest taster Faryan Amir-Ghassemi

Bordeaux 2009 from bottle: TNs from guest taster Faryan Amir-Ghassemi | Wine website, Wine magazine...What’s Hot Today on Wine Blogs? | Scoop.it

Gruaud Larose – Another top 3 for me even though I concede it as less “impressive” and “endowed” as some of its peers. This wine beckons to the glory days of Gruaud: the 80s (or 60s if you’re an old fart). Already the most complex nose of the night, with hallmark Cordier funk (sans Brett), superb red fruit, intermixed with secondary aromatics. The mouth is absolutely lovely and light on its feet. I recall old-timers talking about how fantastic and unheralded 1982 Pichon Lalande was in its youth. I think this wine may be similar; the rare Bordeaux that drinks fantastic throughout its lifespan. Back up the truck (95-98+)
