Château De Chantegrive 2009 Bordeaux Red Wine Revisited

Château De Chantegrive 2009 Bordeaux Red Wine, $26.08-$28.99, 90 points (wine evolves), poured core black with a clear rim while a lovely black cherry red was sandwiched between them.
Aromatic black currant and cedar with a light plum note grew on me.
Near full-bodied with good acidity, solid tannin, and flavors that reflected the aromas with the addition of Kahlua truffle which added depth to a very good red wine.
Finished on the trailing palate, a well integrated 13.5% alcohol, and hints of spicy oak.
Make no mistake, this is an enduring food lovers red wine, and more proof that 2009 made Bordeaux shine! Want to taste an entry-level Bordeaux? Give this one a try! Though more than two years ago I was less than enthralled with this Bordeaux, the aging process was illustrative to me!
Varietals were 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot.
