2009 Château Teyssier St-Emilion Grand Cru
Single Bottles (75cl) @ £17.50
      Go Back
Tasting Notes:
Some oak is apparent at this early stage and will be for a few years after bottling but, by eight years or so from the vintage, the fruit will be evolved and singing out: rich, plummy, earthy and, above all, ripe. There is good length here; this is a wine that will be superb with beef or lamb.
Drinking Dates:
2012 to 2018
85% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc
12 months in oak barrels
Critic Reviews:
The flagship property of Jonathan Maltus (his residence as well), this is the best Teyssier I have ever tasted. A tribute to his efforts, this blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc over-achieves even in a great vintage like "Opaque blue/purple, with notes of charcoal, blackberry, cassis and spring flowers as well as a hint of subtle background oak., the wine is opulent, sumptuously textured, dense, pure and multi-dimensional. It should drink well for at least a decade or more." 92/100 (Wine Advocate)

"The 2009 Teyssier possesses a dense ruby/purple color as well as smoky barbecue notes intermixed with creme de cassis, black cherries, and earth. Ripe, generous, and medium to full-bodied, it should drink beautifully young yet age for 10-12+ years." 91/100 (Wine Advocate)

"Lovely juicy, crunchy fruit accompanied by lift and grip. A satisfying drink and accessible early on. Great value. Drink 2012-2018." 16/20 (Decanter)

"This is denser, richer and more meaty. They have improved the grapes for this wine by including some good plots from near Chateau Monbusquet, but the aim is to make a wine that is approachable, and drinkable within a year of purchase (although this year I would say it may take a little longer to fully soften up)." 90-91/100 (South China Morning Post)

You must be aged 18 or over to purchase wine.
