Why do we love it?

Château La Prade 2009 is an unbelievable red Bordeaux coming with a price that makes you check and check again if you are mistaken. We loved it for its freshness (despite its 10 years) and its impressive complexity. When we saw the price tag, we rubbed our eyes and we wondered how we got so lucky!

Château La Prade is a boutique winery in Cotes de Francs, the smallest in size, recognized appellation of Bordeaux. In 2000, Nicolas Thienpont took over the winery. Former owner was Thierry Valette (Chateau Troplong Mondot, St. Emilion). Vines are 40 years old on average. The winemaker chooses vinification with whole bunches in cement tanks. 50% of the wine is matured in new French oak barrels for 15 months. The result is a juicy and fruity wine with absolute balance and great aging potential. The 2009 vintage is 100% Merlot and has received the best reviews and ratings. Legitimately, since it was a very good year and probably one of the most expensive years for Bordeaux.

Thankfully, we've got a few bottles of this little diamond, Château La Prade 2009!

On the palate it is juicy and exuberant with medium to full body, crisp acidity and moderate but ripe tannins. Its impressive concentration is expressed as cherry, sour cherry, plum and blueberry jam. Sweet spices, forest floor, black tea and lavender complement the impressive set. The long lasting cocoa aftertaste wins you over in every sip.
