"This winery's name comes from the extraordinary tightly spaced vines (20,000 vines per hectare, nearly double that of other tightly spaced Bordeaux vineyards). The brainchild of the passionate Jean-Philippe Janoueix who started 20 Mille in 2005, the wine comes from a tiny parcel of the Croix-Mouton vineyard. Made from 100% Merlot, the 2009 is a bigger-than-life sort of wine boasting a huge color, huge extract, massive fruit, sweet tannin, good acidity, and a profile that suggests neither over-ripeness nor heat despite natural alcohols of 14.7%. This exquisite Bordeaux Superieur should drink well for a decade or more."
