Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

The 2010 Domaine Terlato & Chapoutier Lieu Dit Malakoff Shiraz - Shiraz sourced from the Malakoff vineyard and made as “a collaboration between legendary French wine grower Michel Chapoutier and wine industry icon Anthony Terlato” (taken from the bottle). It has overwhelming aromas of milky lees, below which smoke, raspberry and blackberry aromas emerge on the nose and raspberry, light wood and subtle barnyard on the palate. It is a medium bodied (on the light side yet with intense lees/fruit flavor), extra-dry, fruity to integrated wine; BALANCED with forward acidity, silky tannins (decant for 30+ min) and a medium to long, slightly hot finish. Drink with food or sip on its own; drink 2016-2022+; evolution potential of +2 pts. My impression: 90-91 (+2 ep) – it is well crafted ‘French style’ wine, though too yeasty for my liking – recommended based on quality for those who enjoy French style, yeasty/yogurty wines. Will open the remaining 3 bottles in 2019, 2024 and sometime after that to see how it evolves. Tasted couple of times, Mar/13 & Dec/13.
