Lynn scored this wine: 95/100
The Pièce De Résistance of Bordeaux, the 2010 Essence de Dourthe is a carte blanche for the Dourthe winemaking team to pluck the best of the best Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot grapes from some of the most esteemed Dourthe estates.
Intoxicating aromas of dark fruits, eucalyptus and oak, it epitomizes the best of what Bordeaux has to offer. With only six thousand bottles produced each year, and only one hundred and twenty of those making their way to Canada in 2017, if you have the means to snag a bottle or two you are in for a wild ride.
Tasted April 2017.
