Opened up to be nice wine. Gritty, cherry cola. A great year shined through after decanting for an hour.

An iron fist in a velvet glove worn by a chevalier coming back to his French chateau from hunting wild game in an oak forest.

Smoked meats, burnt wood, blackcurrants, oak and blackberries. Bit tannic but she'll get there

Lots of fruit, 2010 still very young. I had this after a 2009 Bordeaux which was more mature, surprised to taste 2010 so fresh and young. Very good profile, dark fruit (blackberry?), lots of ripe tannins (as opposed to earthy tannins in the 2009 St-Georgs-St Emilion)

Would benefit from additional aging. Very drinkable and holds up well to somewhat spicy food. Subtle dark fruit and terroir flavor. Nose light but quite enjoyable and complex.

Beautiful fruit and floral nose and the palate follows in kind. Can't imagine it getting better.
