Absolutely gorgeous! Great value. Well balanced, medium plus acidity, dusty medium plus tannins. Cedar plank and ripe blackberry aromatics. Ripe blackberry, violet petal, and aged leather on the palate. Amazing with braised beef. Tasted 2010 vintage decanted 2 h in July 2017. Amazing value, great complexity, ready to enjoy. 91 points.

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Aromatic blueberry, cedar and tobacco notes with juicy tart cherry, spice, and smoked cedar plank notes. A delicious medium-bodied Bordeaux red with moderately smooth (medium developing tannins), high-integrated-acid and a long cherry spice finish. A well-integrated, well-balanced value-priced Bordeaux drinking very now. Enjoy with smoked mesquite BBQ chicken wings. Tasted July 2017 by @sommssoa | bespoketastings.ca
Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:

Tasted Aug 5 2017, with good friends at dinner. Aromas and flavours of Plum, black currant , violet and cedar. Taste dry, medium body, soft tannin with dark fruit. We had a grilled beef tenderloin, with portobello mushroom shallots and wine sauce along with roast fingerling potatoes and fresh local corn. Everyone liked the match.
Chateau Haut-Piquat (2010) is made by the Famille Rivière. The wine is made from one of Saint-Émilion's satellite regions - Lussac. The red wine blend is 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. Enjoy with roast chicken, hard cheese and lamburgers. - Community Wine Reviews
