2010 was a great vintage in Bordeaux so even this quiet basic saint Emilion is doing well. A blend of Merlot and CF, nose full of red currant, black current and dark fruits, medium body with nice tannins and good acidity, quiet young and fruity, not very complex and easy to drink. A bit hollow, but reasonable. My score 83, drink to 2018

Surprisingly good for the price! 2010 was a great year all around , and this small wine is reaping the benefits. Fairly tannic with decent acidity, but the fruit is peeking out...

Overall it's fine, but just a little bit bitter after the swallow. Someone might don't like it.
