Château La Barauderie 2009 Bordeaux Supérieur, $11.04-$12.99, 85 points, rejects any Bordeaux wine color that is typical of Bordeaux, and is a bright sunset orange-red with a very broad watery edge.
My first sniff screamed alcohol (14.5%) and an oily red grape.
My first taste followed suit, but a sticky caramel-bourbon heat dominated all other flavors in this medium bodied dry red wine of high acidity with a moderate tannic presence, rendering them insignificant, as ostensibly intended.
This woody alcohol laden wine will appeal to those who want more of an affective wine than one which can be savored.
