Cerro Gordo 2009

Puisseguin Saint-Emilion AOC

Great Gold Medal at the 2011 Concours Mondial de Bruxelles


This magnificent wine has an intense garnet-red colour, a voluptuous,
fruity, complex nose, and a great deal of class. It is both powerful
and soft on the palate, including the aftertaste, with a beautiful
balance between structure and roundness. Fruity, elegant, and silky.
