Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.
Chateau Pipeau Grand Cru 2010 Wine Review
Classic and complex. Needs some cellar time as well as decanting 2 hours once opened. Aromas of mocha and toast from the oak aging on the nose mingle beautifully with the dark fruit and violets. Multiple layers and satisfaction. Great dinner party wine. 4.6/5 Food pairings: filet mignon, coffee-rubbed steak. Best Beef Wine

|Darlene Myers rated this wine as 4.6/5 with the following review:|
I loved this Bordeaux with its Mocha flavours, big rich fruits in the glass and toasty oak. I enjoyed this wine with a pot roast done in the slow cooker and it was a match made in heaven.
|Dan Trcka rated this wine as 4.6/5 with the following review:|
The 2010 Grand Cru Château Pipeau has intense notes of black cherry, pine, cigar box, clove, vanilla and faint leather. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry, integrated wine; BALANCED with good acidity, grippy tannins (decant for 30+ min) and a long to extra-long finish. Enjoy this wine on-its-own; drink now – 2020+. My impression: BEAUTIFUL to DIVINE, 92+ pts – recommended for its quality. Tasted Nov/13.

|Matt Steeves Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 4.6/5 with the following review:|
Amazing sweet spices with loads of yummy dark fruit in this young Bordeaux. Molasses cookies, ginger snaps, blueberries, mineral, quite simply a relatively complex crowd pleaser that will pair well with a wide range of food or drink beautifully on its own.
