One of my all-time favorite cru bourgeois, as well as one of the most consistent, in 2009 the Patache d’Aux is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. This wine has been a winner since the early 1980s and it continues to offer a classic style of Medoc. Earthy, cedary, with red and black currants and a hint of unsmoked cigar tobacco, the 2009 is certainly lower in acidity and riper than more traditionally styled vintages, but it is super-attractive and ideal for drinking over the next 5-10 years. ||(A member of the Association of Crus Bourgeois du Medoc.)

Tasted at Vintex. This is too sweet and slightly “pruney” on the nose. The palate is better with grainy tannins, clean black fruit with some nice minerality coming through towards the finish. The nose calms down a little with aeration, so I hold out some promise that this wine will harmonize and settle by bottling. This could be one to watch. Tasted March 2010.

Mineral, berry and black licorice aromas follow through to a full body, with supersilky tannins and a long finish. Lovely wine. Best ever from here?

60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot. Dark and very slightly leafy, adding an extra layer. Elegant, restrained and upright. Not very plush but good length and refined. (JH) d purplish crimson. Very sweet and concentrated nose but without much real lift or distinction. Cocoa. Drying finish.
