2009 Château Capet , Grand Cru Saint-Emilion
Vintage 2009 Score Bordeaux, Red 18/20
AOC Saint-émilion-Grand-Cru covers the same appellation area as Saint-Emilion and is located in Libournais on the right bank of the Dordogne. The production conditions are more stringent than those of the Saint-Emilion AOC: a yield limited to 40hl / ha and a compulsory 12 months breeding.
Saint-émilion-Grand-Cru covers 4,030 ha of calcareous, clay-loamy and sandy soils. Merlot dominates the blends of this AOC, but Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon are also vinified. Saint-émilion-Grand-Cru produces 150 291 hl of red wines each year.
Vintage description 2009 Bordeaux :
2009 was, indisputably, a very good year for all of the Bordeaux vineyards. The summer had a great deal of sun and this continued through to September, resulting in a high concentration of anthocyanin and aromas that are necessary to produce quality wines. Unfortunately, this was not enough to produce a great vintage. A good balance of alcohol and acidity is also very important.
That year, the stakeholders and wine experts were impressed by the quality of the fruit: a flavoursome and delicate fruit that was present in all harvests picked early enough. One of the risks of this vintage was a late harvest, resulting in slightly cooked and heavy aromas.
Those that harvested at just the right degree of ripeness, managed to capture the quality of this fruit in a remarkable balance of tannins/alcohol/acidity. This made relatively easy-to-drink young wines which also proved to be ideal for cellaring. Hence, 2009 is not far off 2005, but slightly less ¿square¿ and more open. Other characteristics of this vintage: generally good wines throughout the appellations and types of wine, including reds, of course, but also dry white and sweet wines.
Medoc had a harsher than average winter up until March when the region was blessed with a prolonged period of sunshine, longer in comparison to the last thirty years and excellent for ripening the grapes. April was very damp and May had quite a lot of storms. Flowering at the beginning of June was quick and homogeneous. The summer provided plenty of sunshine, without being excessive. The high levels of water stress and good conditions allowed the grapes to reach full maturity. The cool nights and warm days in September were ideal. The majority of the harvest was in perfect condition.
In Saint Emilion and Pomerol, on the right bank, the same weather conditions produced a very good vintage, although perhaps with slightly too much alcohol for the Merlots. The Cabernet Francs and Sauvignons were better-balanced.
In the Sauternes and Barsac regions, six consecutive months of drought and moderate heat resulted in perfectly ripe grapes, which were possibly even richer in sugar (an in alcohol) than those of 2005. The vegetative stage was unusually good and the cool summer nights preserved the grapes' acidity and potential aromatic. Botrytisation was outstanding, particularly thanks to the rain on 19th September (which was not torrential as had been forecast!) and the three hot and dry weeks that ensued.
Yquem picked its last grapes on 19th October; opulent like in 1990, intense like 2003; concentrated like 2001, magical like 1893, 2009 promises to be great, unless... Only time will tell.¿

Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Nach mehrmaligen Versuchen meldet sich der Verkäufer nicht um eine erneute Versendung zu vereinbaren.Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.After 3 delivery attempts and of which you yourself make an appointment to be delivered with the company, and you have not fulfilled the agreement and the package has not yet ended up. This is asking for problems I had informed you that problems were coming and apparently the package is lost now and I have it back so I can not send anything back to you.
You caused these problems, not me . And now you have been fully reimbursed after an annullation of the purchase, so why still and negative feedback ? I suppose some people enjoy being negative
Excellent service — well packed wine with a rapid delivery. Recommended.
Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.dommage après avoir laissé reposer comme il se doit , le vin était piqué et bouchonné je garde les quatre en espérant avoir une bonne surprise à l'ouverture dans quelque tempsPlease note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Même après une bonne conservation des vins comme vous pouvez le voir sur les photos de l'annonce et constaté à la reception des vins , que il existe toujours un risque avec des vieux vins
Nous n'avons jamais de garantie que les vieux vins restent bons à la consommation. C'est le risque que nous prenons tous et en espérons que ...?
Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Excellente expérience, colis reçus dans les temps et très bien conditionné, très professionnel et à l’écoute.J’ai vraiement bien apprecié l’échange avec ce vendeur ainsi que les conseils donnés. Merci
Those wine bottles received look fake at multiple levels; freshly printed labels, taste... a big warning for future buyers...Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Hello,
These are Belgian négocainte bottling it is listed on label, there is nothing wrong with it. You can find them at different auction in Europe with the same bottles and same labels from different years.
They were approved by professional wine auctioneers.
Taste ??? we do not taste wine from the sixties 7 days after receiving the bottles, let the wine rest at least 6 to 8 weeks before tasting.
I have already sold more than 30 of these bottles from 3 different years from the 60s , you are the only one who complains about that.
Everything was clear with the advertisement if you are not satisfy or had higher expectations with your purchase I can not do anything about that.
Find it rather rude !!! what you say, I have been selling here for more than 3 years, none of my feedback gives any indication of what you claim and says.
But sometimes there are those people who like to plague other people and enjoy being negative like you , because they are not happy with their purchase.
Quick shipping, well-packaged bottles.
Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.运输速度很快，觉得是年份的关系，定过来的3瓶酒 都是坏的，可惜Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Hello
sorry! but you don't taste wine 7 days after the transport certainly not if it is very old wine. Rest for at least 6 to 8 weeks before tasting
As a wine lover or connoisseur, you should know that anyway ? and you knows the risks involved in buying old wines.
The feedback is not about the condition of the wine, but rather the after-sales service, because everyone knows the risks involved in buying old wines.
Negative feedback is not appropriate here. you could make a positive feedback or neutral with the same comment.
