Lot #360. Catherine et Pierre Breton Bourgueil Les Perrieres 2009

Description: Consists of 6 Bottles, 0.75L
Region: France, Loire, Bourgueil.
Score: 92 JG.
"The 2009 Bourgueil “les Perrières” from Catherine et Pierre Breton is a superb example of the vintage, with a deep and very classy nose of black cherries, coffee bean, menthol, woodsmoke, a touch of tree bark, Cuban cigar wrappers, a beautifully complex base of stony soil tones and just a touch of new wood. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and complex, with a superb core of fruit, excellent focus and complexity, a plush core of fruit, and a fair bit of chewy tannins (some from the new wood) still waiting for full integration on the long and classy finish. This is an excellent wine, but as I have often said about previous vintages of the Bretons’ Perrières, this great terroir really does not gain much by its sojourn in new oak and it really would be even more special without the new wood playing any role in the wine."
