2009 Grandes Murallies is a knock out. This tiny (1.46 hectare) vineyard is planted at 7,500 vines/ha, all merlot. The soils are sandy clay atop the Saint Emilion limestone plateau. Deeply colored, with cocoa, spice, fresh baked fruit pie, cinnamon stick, and jammy berries that explode from the glass. This sexy, stylish wine pours into your mouth with an intense, thick, black and blueberry filled finish, made complex by licorice and dark cherries. This is the first time I have scored this wine higher than their Clos St. Martin. But Grandes Murallies deserves the boost. 94-96 Pts
