Natalie's Score: 92/100

I wonder if the alcohol level is correct on the label? It doesn't taste that hot, and this is very high for Bordeaux at 15%. Love the nose of this full-bodied Bordeaux red wine blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot grapes from the Left Bank region of Pomerol. The 2010 vintage was a strong one for Bordeaux. Aromas of fleshy red cherries and violets, followed by darker fruit on the palate. Luscious and supple with some tannic grip that will soften with 2 hours decanting. This will last in the cellar but why wait as it's ready now. Good, satisfying finish. Pair with a rare, juicy steak.

Food pairings: roast Bresse chicken, roast pheasant with garlic leeks, veal chops in red wine sauce.

Remarkable Roast Chicken Wine

Reviews and Ratings

Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

This was a delight in the glass. Black licorice on the nose gave way to a hint of mint. Smokey and smooth on the palate. Very well balanced. Acid is still somewhat evident so will continue to age but is drinking beautifully now. Tasted December 2016.
Produced by Baronne Guichard, this Bordeaux red wine blend has polished tannins and a long finish. The 2010 vintage is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc grapes from a good vintage. This winery has been in the family since 1832 with 46 hectares of vines on the Pomerol plateau. Enjoy now and for the next five years. - Community Wine Reviews
