2010 Bordeaux

Château Canon-la-Gaffelière

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

This is smokin hot. Absolutely delicious. Perfumes nose of berries and granite. Even keeled tannins and smooth structure. Deep black fruit with subtle mineralogy. Long finish. . — 4 hours ago

Domaine de Chevalier

Grand Cru Classe De Graves Pessac Leognan 2010

A really elegant and balanced wine from a classical vintage. Lots of potential but decanted 45 minutes before it was very drinkable. It has the acidity and freshness of the 65% cab sauv but also the flesh of those 39% merlot. Really great wine and highly recommended. — 2 hours ago

Château Destieux

Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

This is excellent, one of the best Bordeaux I have tasted. Rich and dark purple in the glass, the nose reminds me of great Napa juice. Full of blackcurrant, cedar, leather and vanilla aromas. Palate is soft, rounded and just delicious with plenty of dark fruit, plum, tobacco and liquorice. The finish is long with some soft tannins and light acidity. I will go back tomorrow and pick up another couple of these, there is no better recommendation than that. If you love Napa Cabernet and modern style Bordeaux this is perfect. — 14 days ago

Château Belle-Vue

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Mon petit Bordeaux « go to », je voulais valider la qualité des 2010. C’est concentré et puissant, quand meme beaucoup de matiere, le nez, la bouche sont typiquement bordelais, avec mine de crayon, cuir tabac, fruit noir. C’est dense et opaque, meme apres 10 ans, il lui reste de bonnes années. — 13 days ago

Château La Tour-Martillac

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Still quite austere, this Latour-Mattillac from the superstar 2010 vintage is a dark, brooding and full-blooded wine from Pessac-Léognan that will be far greater in 5/10+ years’ time. Better on the second day than the first (despite a two hour decant), it showed the traditional medley of dark fruit, cassis, wet gravel and grip, but with a profile more similar to its neighbours further north than what one may consider ‘typical’ Graves. But make no mistake: this is an exceptional Bordeaux worthy of long-term cellaring, and one with a hence attractive price tag. — 23 days ago

An awesome vintage. Happy 10th to our family friend’s son! Very dark ruby color with no sign of aging. Started to open up after 2.5-3 hours of decanting. Dark berries, pencil lead, fall soil, wet leaves, black pepper, tobacco. Full body. Well balanced with a long finish. Should age for a long time given the tannin. Very nice — 2 days ago

Château Haut-Batailley

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Still has a lot left in the tank. After an hour it’s still opening up. Plum, blackberry, blueberry, black licorice, bittersweet cocoa powder, candied almond, kirsch. Silk jacket, refined tannins, an aorta of acidity giving life to the rest of the wine. Delicious burger wine, maybe the peak of the category. Wish I kept it til 2027. — 9 days ago

Château Malescot St. Exupéry

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Disappointing! I used to be a big fan of this producer, but recent bottles have been lacking.

1 hour decant. Dark purple color. Nose has oak, vanilla, and plum. The body lacks depth and has almost no fruit. More New World than Old World. Short finish. My rating might be harsh at 91, but just had higher expectations.

Still closed down you think? Got a bottle I've been hanging on to, but sounds like it needs a few more years.

Possibly, but starting to think this just might be an average producer.
