This quality wine from Chateau Bernadotte 2009
Each vintage has its own character, a Bernadotte has the constant qualities of a great wine with an inimitable taste that we appreciate and that we love to rediscover.
To the eye, a Bernadotte offers you its deep and deep ruby color. On the nose, it releases aromas of red fruits with notes of spices and undergrowth; the bouquet is expressive and sustained. On the palate, generosity asserts itself, if the attack is fresh, the structure is tannic. The finish is long, very supple.

The finest La Bernadotte made to date, this 2009 is an undeniable sleeper of the vintage. Composed of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot, it reveals a dense purple color 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. (Tasted once.)
