Chateau La Tour du Pin Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Classé 2009

Chateau La Tour du Pin's 2009 vintage is initially a little closed and lacking in intensity in its mouthfeel.  It does however build aromatics and flavour with time in the glass, with reminders of plum, earth, tobacco and dried spices.  Seemingly able to be coaxed and cajoled into action, the wine's length builds towards long and it demonstrates a certain class and restraint.  This is a balanced and recommended wine, although decanting it for 30 minutes before serving will allow this wine to show its best.
