2010 Haut Prieur, Côtes de Bordeaux "Vielles Vignes"
The wine is sweet, very rich and smooth. Firm tannins are cushioned by the ripe berry and red plum fruits to give a spicy wine with touches of wood, finishing with pepper from the alcohol. Drink from 2017.
A lovely wine from the Cotes de Blaye. Plenty of sweet blackberry fruit. Elegant and delicious now. Will cellar well for five plus years. Along the same lines as the 2009, but with more strength on the palate. Superb value.
