Blackberry, black licorice and spices. What a nose. Full-bodied, with supervelvety tannins and a long, long finish. Wonderful texture

Slightly cooked fruit, with plums and cherries that follow through to a full body, with fine tannins and a chocolate, plum aftertaste. Orange peel too. Try in 2017. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

This excellent yet under-exploited terroir has produced its finest Tertre Daugay to date. The dark ruby/purple-colored 2009 offers loads of black raspberry, licorice, and black cherry aromas, medium to full body, silky tannins, a layered mouthfeel, and an expansive finish. It should provide enormous pleasure over the next 10-15 years. (Tasted two times.)

Very dark purple. So sweet! Like Edinburgh rock and glucose. Feels as though it will harm the teeth. Pretty sweet and to the limit.
