Drinking very well, with a plummy chocolate character and toasty finish. Grainy tannins give structure and framework. Excellent value and a very pleasant mouthful of classic BDX character

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.

Half bottles, perfect for drinking alone.

Pretty lean and hard on the palate with monochromatic red fruit. The structure is there for some softening and pleasure over medium term.
