2009 : comments

Kevin Shin, on Mark Squire’s BB (, posted his impressions and liked the 2009 vintage very much. Here are a few notes he gave to the 2009 he tasted : Valandraud and Marojallia got nice notes: 96-98, Gracia 95-97, Flor de Pingus 96-98 and Pingus 98-100. I must admit that he is part of the amateur clients and fans of Valandraud

On the website La Passion du Vin, like every year, Bertrand Le Guern (ex Luxey) posted his incredible work of compiling notes.

The March 22 issue of WeinWisser (in German) features a big tasting of Egon Müller’s wines, as well as Tenuta Di Trinoro, Ducru Beaucaillou and Valandraud.
The 95-96-97-98-99-2003-2004-2005-2006 and 2008 vintages were noted, with very nice notes and probably good comments (in German).

We drank, with our meal and a paella, Quinta Sardonia 2006 ( I already said that I like this wine) as well as a wine given by a Swiss friend :
Chamoson 2006 Syrah Vieilles Vignes from Simon Maye and Fils in Saint Pierre de Clages in Switzerland : 13.2%, a very good wine with strawberries, violets, soft palate, a real pleasure.
