PRATS AND SYMINGTON (P+S) Douro 'Chryseia' 2009

2013 Top 100 - Rank # 53
Bruno Prats and Charles Symington may have produced an outstanding 'Chryseia' with this fantastic 2009. The 70% Touriga Nacional and 30% Touriga Franca was meticulously selected from Prats and Symington's own prime vineyards of Quinta de Roriz and Quinta de Perdiz, fruit from Quinta de Vila Velha, a privately owned vineyard of the Symington family also was included, as it has been in every vintage of the 'Chryseia'. This is a thrilling, powerful and complex wine. It's dense and concentrated with intense aromas and flavors of blackberry reduction, blueberry, exotic spices, herbs, roasted coffee and a wonderful saline character. This is a full, richly textured wine that is beautifully balanced with gorgeous underlying acidity that keeps it fresh and inviting. The supple finish is long and persistent, leaving behind a generous coating of dark fruits and spices that linger on and on. This is still very youthful and even racy at this stage and will only get better with age, as it comes together and matures in bottle. (Best 2016-2030) - October, 2013 (JD)
