2010 Bordeaux

Château Calon

Montagne-St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

I have opened the 2010 Château Calon Montagne-Saint-Emilion. A blend of 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc.

On the nose I am getting black cherry, blackberry, black plum, black currant, herbs, tobacco, licorice, chocolate, spice and earth.

On the palate there is nice dsrk fruit, black cherry, blackberry, plum, black currant, bay leaf, licorice, herbal notes,graphite and earth.

This wine is medium to full bodied with a supple mouthfeel, medium+ acidity and medium to medium + fine supple tannins that leaves you with a long dark fruit earthy finish. Have a great week ahead and please be safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Château Beau-Séjour Bécot

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Fantastic bottle from a really cool and old school St. Emillion producer - the limestone storage caves were a sight to behold.. Grabbed one of these for the cellar - excited to see how good this will be in 10-15 years. — 2 months ago

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou

Croix de Beaucaillou Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Blend of 85% Cab Sauv and 15% Merlot, with an impressive label designed by Mick Jagger’s daughter, Jade. Deep Ruby with aromas of dark berry fruit, spice and herb notes. On the palate flavors of blackberry, plum and tart black cherry with currant and black pepper. Fine tannins, well balanced ending with smoky spice. Tasting well now, crack it out of cellar. — 12 days ago

Château Pichon-Longueville Baron

Baron de Pichon-Longueville Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Very Napa-esque- in all the best ways. Tight tannins even after 1.5 hours of decanting suggests that this vintage has many years in the cellar to go. — 11 days ago

Château Bellisle Mondotte

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

A touch hot but otherwise an unpretentious and delicious right bank Bdx (80 merlot / 20 cab franc). Dark fruits—plums and blueberry—plus tobacco and plenty of earth and umami. Pair with anything roasted or grilled and a summer evening watching the fireflies — 12 days ago

Château Haut-Brion

Le Clarence de Haut-Brion Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Soft on the palette and luscious on the nose. Nice presence on sandalwood and oak. A bargain wine and vintage drinkable now or for another 5 years in the cellar. — 15 days ago

Château Bernadotte

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Pours ruby with some translucence. Benefits from a few hours decanting. Nose of tobacco, brown sugar, subtle strawberry and generous oak. Opens to cassis, truffle, leather and cigar box. Medium finish, with long tannins. Very well balanced. Great vintage, could be kept for much longer — 4 days ago
