St Eden 2009 Bond
€ 543,29 (incl. Vat)
The 2011 Proprietary Red Blend St. Eden is even better than it was last year from the barrel. This is always a great sign and reflects not only excellent winemaking, but meticulous élevage and bottling techniques. One of the superstars of this much maligned vintage, this beauty offers up notes of forest floor, Christmas fruitcake, cedar, blackcurrants and sweet cherries. Broad, savory, full-bodied and opulent, it is already complex and delicious, and should continue to provide immense pleasure for 10-15 more years.
This is chewy, with a tar and berry character, including raspberries. Full body, tangy acidity, burnt orange and juicy fruit.
