Chateau de Myrat 2009 En Primeur Barsac
Chateau de Myrat (2nd Growth)
Bill Blatch: Here is another very rich and strong wine. It checks in at 14°0 alcohol and 150 g/l residual, and is full of ripe, quite roasted flavours. Yet it has tremendous freshness, partly from the quite high acidity and also from the ‘lift’ that its chalky Barsac subsoil certainly provides. So, in the mouth, as well as being very rich, it is also very fresh.
Chateau de Myrat Tasting Review And Ratings
Wine Spectator – Score 94-97 : Dried apricot and citrus fruit aromas follow through to a full body, with a very sweet and intense palate. Finishes with lots of fruit and spicy nutmeg character.
Decanter –17 Points : Excellent ultra-ripe peach and melon aromas, clear, pure, rich, complex, very Barsac, with the nice acidity linked to the village. Very well made and surely magnificent value for money.
Jancis Robinson – 17.5pts: Mid straw. Rich and concentrated even if totally unformed. Very flattering in terms of weight. Though this lacks grace. Just BIG! And still quite chewy on the end. Even a hint of green on the finish. Drink 2018-2030.
Wine Advocate 91-93pts: Very tight and taciturn on the nose at the moment, but the palate is very well balanced with vibrant acidity, real clarity of fruit here with a superb, tense, citrus finish that just slices through that pure, heavenly botrytized fruit. This is very elegant, almost understated, but the purity is utterly charming.
