Tasting Notes:
rated: June 11, 2010 , Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
91 points "(100% merlot; 15% alcohol) Dark ruby. Deep but reticent nose reveals aromas of red cherry, pomegranate and flowers with air. Juicy and fresh, with good energy and definition to the flavors of pomegranate, ripe plum and licorice. The persistent finish features youthfully chewy tannins and a flinty mineral element. This hides its alcohol level well but will need time to resolve its tannins. Production of La Gomerie was lower than usual due to hail in May (6/ 2010) "

93 points " 100% Merlot, is filled with licorice, plums, coffee, chocolate, and black raspberries with hints of jam. Soft, sexy, and round, it blends elegance with opulence, finishing with rich sensations of black raspberries and dark cherries. "

91 points "This wine now exhibits the evolved, full-bodied, opulent style for which this 100% Merlot cuvee is renowned. Abundant mocha, cranberry liqueur, kirsch, licorice and subtle espresso roast and smoke (from new barriques) characteristics are found in this attractive St.-Emilion. Some of the concerns I had early on were not evident in the bottle, although I do not believe the 2009 is as flashy and concentrated as La Gomerie’s greatest efforts can be. Drink the 2009 over the next 15+ years. This is one of the St.-Emilion estates that was devastated by hail damage in mid-May. Although the hail storm occurred too early to undermine the quality of the vintage, it did reduce yields to absurdly low levels. The result is an outstanding 2009 that has lost some of the tannic bite it revealed from barrel. (2/ 2012) " Best 2014-2027
