Natalie's Score: 91/100

The 2010 vintage was a spectacular one for the Bordeaux region, and for this producer in particular who won a gold medal at the 2013 Decanter World Wine Awards for this 2010 bottling. The Château Rousseau De Sipian is a classic blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. Medium- to full-bodied, smooth and elegant with a lovely balance of cassis, smoke and toasty oak aromas. This wine was aged for one year in French oak barrels. Beautifully structured with polished tannins and a long finish. Try it with prime rib. Tannic so decant 2 hours.

Food pairings: roast beef, pheasant, Camembert, game.

Reviews and Ratings

Martha Kelly AIWS - CS rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

With red berry fruit and slight floral and mint flavours this one refreshes while the soft tannins give structure. Medium length on the palate.
Pair with pizza or burgers.
Drink now or keep until 2016.
Date tasted: November 20124.
Terrific value for this Cru Bourgeois red wine. The grapes were grown in 15 hectares of vineyards planted in various soil types, all typical of the Medoc appellation. This is a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. The wine was aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. This wine won a Gold Medal at the 2013 Decanter World Wine Awards. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
