Wine Enthusiast 93 & 91 points for current Domaine Terlato & Chapoutier releases

93 Domaine Terlato & Chapoutier 2009 L-Block Shiraz (Pyrenees)
From a special section of Lieu Dit Malakoff, this is a wondrously perfumed Shiraz, dazzling with wintergreen, anise and cracked pepper scents, all layered over blueberry fruit. It’s medium in body and silky in texture, with a long, mouth-watering finish that brings espresso to mind.

91 Domaine Terlato & Chapoutier 2009 Lieu Dit Malakoff Shiraz (Pyrenees) – Editor’s Choice
The Terlato-Chapoutier wines offer a refreshing, medium-bodied style of Australian Shiraz. Anise and mint feature prominently in this vintage, plus notes of blackberry, espresso and spice. Drink now-2016.
