2010 was an utterly spectacular vintage for Bordeaux, especially in the Medoc. The nose on this charmer opens with notes of ripe red and black cherry, black raspberry, and black plum framed by accents of rose petal, tobacco leaf, leather, tar, and a hint of dried herbs. Medium in body with fine focus and balance, it is already in its drinking window, though it should continue to evolve well over the next 5-6 years. It positively begs for wintery roasts and stews and will also play well with duck, steak, and even backyard barbecue fare come Spring/Summer. This is a fantastic way to get your hands on some quality 2010 without breaking the bank. Superb value buy.
