DeLILLE CELLARS, Grand Ciel & Doyenne, Doyenne 2009 AIX

The black magenta color reveals the first hints of the size and power of this blockbuster wine. The massive bouquet of raspberries, anise, cardamom wood spice and smoke reinforce the power of the vintage. Deep and complex, there is an mélange of red fruits including raspberries, pomegranates, and strawberries. The cassis and espresso notes unfold from the Cabernet Sauvignon layered with raspberries, black pepper and nutmeg from the Syrah. This is a classically hedonistic, juicy, richly flavored Aix that showcases the generous aspects of the vintage.
