Big and tannic, very firm and tough. Yet all the fruit is there, offering great potential. There is a ripe, juicy aftertaste. Under the same ownership as Château Léoville-Poyferré in Saint-Julien.
Round, bright and pure, with silky-textured plum, cassis and blackberry fruit and a long, iron-tinged finish. The grip really struts its stuff on the finish, with the fruit showing excellent persistence.
I like the juicy and spicy character in this wine, with currants and berries. Full and refined with lovely tannins. I want to drink it already.
The tiny, picturesque jewel of a property, sandwiched between Cos d'Estournel and Montrose, is owned by the same family that owns Chateau Leoville Poyferre in St.-Julien. A final blend of 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, the 2010 has turned out to be ripe, attractive wine with notes of sweet mocha, red and black currants, pen ink and light as well as sweet tannins. This wine is medium-bodied, elegant and best drunk over the next decade.
