Fantastic Value: 90 Point 2009 Bordeaux Under $20!
Today we are pleased to offer one of the last hidden values of the 2009 Bordeaux vintage, Chateau Fleur La Mothe 2009, Cru Bourgeois, Medoc.
This screaming value has been rated 90 points by Neal Martin on erobertparker.com in September along with receiving Gold Medal at the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles, and at the Concours de Macon.
A wine that has really never ever made it Stateside, this is the first known official offer on this wine in the United States! We couldn't leave those Brits continue to gobble it all up, now could we???!!!
A staple of English and Belgium Merchants this wine right now on winesearcher.com can only be found in Belgium and Hong Kong. It appears even the UK is sold out already!!!
This is truly a great little gem of the Medoc. The property was classified as a Cru Bourgeois in 1932, but remained under the radar for years with only a handful of merchants paying attention until 2008. The property was bought in 2008 by 3 oenologists who brought the property back under the spotlight: Antoine Medeville, Henri Boyer and Edouard Massie. Edouard Massie for instance consults at Pontet Canet, Calon Segur, Chateau Talbot and Gruaud Larose, which proves if needed that their team has some know-how to produce some of the best wines.
2009 Chateau Fleur La Mothe 90 points
Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois 2009 tasting in London. The Fleur La Mothe 2009 has a very concentrated bouquet with far more fruit intensity than its peers. The palate is silky smooth on the entry with very good depth, harmonious with luscious black, vanilla-tinged fruit towards the succulent finish. Good length. Modern in style and beautifully crafted. Tasted September 2011. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com
With an average price of $26 on winesearcher.com this wine is already a screaming value.

The wine is due to our warehouse by September and this is a screaming steal for a 2009 90 point Bordeaux. Especially one that comes from some of the consultants of the juggernaut of Pontet Canet (incidentally a 100 point wine according to Robert Parker).
