This blend of 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and the rest Malbec is from the Thienpont family. (Puygueraud is the estate where this large clan was born.) The 2009 is impressive, but the estate somewhat under-the-radar, since it is hard to pronounce and not exactly a household name. This is a beautifully fleshy wine with loads of licorice, spring flowers, graphite and black fruits. Fleshier and more concentrated than usual, with a longer, more intense finish and plenty of glycerin, this dark ruby/purple wine is a knock-out and, in theory, an attractive great value. It should drink well for up to a decade. Wine Advocate.February, 2012

Tasted at a negociant. A light, earthy nose with moderate definition, some sous-bois aromas developing. The palate is very tannic on the entry, good depth, a lot of wood towards the austere, dry finish. Tasted March 2010.

Violets and blackberries with hints of spices on the nose. Full body, with soft and velvety tannins and a juicy finish. Drink now or hold. Always excellent value. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Mineral and blackberry skins aromas follow through to a full body, with mineral and spice flavors and a long finish. Yummy despite a tough growing season due to hail. Little dry

Deep purple. Very sweet and unctuous and should be VGV. Exotic, plush, very purple tasting. Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com
