2010 Clément-Pichon, Haut-Médoc (1.5L)

SKU #1121601 90-92 points Wine Enthusiast

 Perfumed, juicy wine, fresh, with delicious acidity and blackberry fruits. A fruit bomb of a wine.  (6/2011)

90 points Wine Spectator

 Bramble, sage and bay notes lead the way, with a mouthwatering feel from the start, showing juicy plum, black currant and loganberry fruit. The finish features a tarry underpinning that fleshes out pleasantly in the glass. Drink now through 2015.  (3/2013)

89 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 A major sleeper of the vintage from major builder/contractor Clement Fayat's fabulous property in the very southern end of the Medoc, Clement-Pichon has turned out a beauty in 2010. Made from 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc, the brilliant Monsieur Rolland is the guru behind the winemaking and consulting at this estate. A round, generously endowed, opulent Medoc bursting with mocha and herb-infused black cherry and black currant fruit, it has a hint of white chocolate, a rich full-bodied mouthfeel, and splendid texture and length. Drink it over the next 7-10 years. A member of the Alliance des Cru Bourgeois du Medoc.  (2/2013)

Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the M├ędoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
