Begaud rated this wine as 99/100 with the following review:

Great wine and great value for 2009 vintage. Well balanced, pure fresh fruit with mild spices intermixed, good body, good length. Well made to drink now. I think good potential for the next 5 years.
Loved it with sirloin steak.
Jane Staples rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This red blend is predominantly Cab Sauv, with Merlot and Petit Verdot. It is an opaque, dark garnet red with aromas of blackberries, earth and stewed fruit. The palate shows dark berries and stewed fruit, oak tea and earth elements. The wine has a beautiful tannic structure with well-integrated fruit and oak elements and velvety mouthfeel. It was aged in oak for 12 mos.

Natalie's Review

Château Lamothe-Cissac Blend - Meritage 2009, Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux A.C., France: Domaines Fabre Terrific wine and a great value for A.C. Bordeaux. Aromas of mocha and dark chocolate on the nose from oak aging following by a superb balance on the palate between dark fruit, smoke, acidity and structure. Gorgeously rich fleshy black plums and dark fruit. Classic. Decant 1 hour. Try it with rosemary lamb. Drink: 2014-2018. 206755 13% XD 750 mL  $28.95 Score: 90/100.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
