French red wine values tasted in 2009

The selected vibrant bottlings have given me much pleasure for the price. I have purchased them again for personal consumption. This page skips the tasting notes of the wines that are not imported into the USA. The complete page of French wine values can be found here.

The below wines were tasted in France, in 2009 (between April and December). The tasting notes are listed by increasing prices, with the following format:

Appellation - producer - plot or brand - variety
Vintage - approximate price - general impression - on nose - on palate - after swallowing
 

red Vdp - Domaine Sainte-Léocadie - (bib cubitainer de 5l)

2007 (et pas une autre année) - USD 6.8 - it makes you tremble if you have drunk too much of it - a lot of fruit, dense but easy to drink, impactful but the balance is food friendly

red Vin de pays des Coteaux de l'Ardèche - Vignerons ardéchois - Cuvée Modestine - Gamay

2007 - USD 9.5 - a nose of ripe black cherry - ripe black cherry on the palate too, the fruit may be dirty on account of grape mold manipulation, a firm balance
