The 2009 LBV was partly aged in pipes. The 2009 is a little closed on the nose. It is very pure and defined with fine tension. This is very harmonious with blackberry, black olive and a hint of soy. It is very focused, very precise and although there is not enormous persistency, this LBV is just suffused with class. The tang of orange rind and cumin is lovely - finishing a more approachable LBV compared to the 2003, although perhaps not quite at the same level of complexity.
