2010 Grand Bateau Rouge, Bordeaux

The 2009 was a find, but 2010 is just a run-of-the-mill Bordeaux table wine. The 2009 had good fruit forward, some body, and a clean but smooth finish. The 2010 lacks the fruitiness, finishes more acidic, with some light structure. If you like typical Bordeaux table wines, this will fit the bill. With enough air, it is a good drinker with pasta or a sandwich, less so alone. Still not bad at the $10/bottle range.

UPDATE: After a day of air (bottled and re-capped, but without the air evacuated), this wine really opened up. Much smoother and rounder, and a very nice table wine.
