2010 Prieur de Meyney, St-Estèphe

James Suckling: "Lots of ripe strawberries, with juicy orange and chalky mineral notes. Sweet red fruit on the palate with a juicy acidity and fine ripe tannins. Medium-full body and a pleasant medium-long finish with nice red fruit. Elegant, but a bit linear. Second wine of Prieur de Meyney. Drink now-2017."

2010 La Fleur Terrien, Lussac St-Emilion Top Pick!
2010 La Fleur Terrien, Lussac St-Emilion

A delicious value red from the right bank. The 10s are usually tannic and a bit hard, but this wine drinks great right now. Lots of sweet blackberry flavors and a smooth, lingering finish. Have it now with a nice rack of lamb. Can be cellared five Plus years. Tastes like a 2009 vintage-maybe they mislabelled it?

Not small by any stretch, with mouthwatering acidity and vivacity pulling you in now. Should develop with cellaring. Drink now through 2025.

2010 Bel Orme Tronquoy de Lalande, Haut Medoc

Jancis Robinson: "Very refreshing nose. Lots of energy...Minerals, refreshment and nice balance here...Good stuff." (1/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the Crus Bourgeois 2010 tasting in London. This has a very seductive bouquet with blackberry, violet and vanilla – there is some new oak to be absorbed here, but it has a beguiling femininity. The palate is medium-bodied with coca-tinged black fruit.

2010 Lamothe-Bergeron, Haut-Médoc

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Dark in color, this is a concentrated wine that’s very firm in structure, with dense tannins. It’s powered by ripe, mature black fruits as well as acids that cut through the dry texture. This needs several years of aging. (RV)" (2/2013) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Focused, with a singed apple wood frame propelling the core of plum, cassis and black cherry fruit. The solid finish lets hints of charcoal and anise flitter in, displaying fine cut. (JM)" (3/2013) Jancis Robinson: "Dense bright red. Round and fresh. More forward than most but vigorous.

(2/2013) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(an 80/20 blend of merlot and cabernet sauvignon): Bright, dark red. Cassis and mint on the classy, youthfully medicinal nose. Juicy and on the lean side but intensely flavored and sharply focused, with bright acidity framing the red berry and licorice flavors.

2010 Gazin, Pomerol

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Wow! This wine exceeded my enthusiastic barrel tasting notes. A big, back-strapping blockbuster from Gazin, in which the oak seems to be pushed into the background (thankfully), the wine offers up notes of caramelized black cherry and black currant fruit interwoven with mocha, white chocolate, subtle toast and hints of coffee beans and tobacco leaf. The exceptional aromatics are easily followed up by a full-bodied, powerful, broodingly backward, rich, intense wine with multiple dimensions, layers of fruit, and a sensational finish of close to a minute.

Juicy, spicy and sharply delineated, with excellent energy to the ripe, complex flavors of dark berries, lead pencil and spices.

2010 Laroque, St-Emilion

Chewy with slightly firm tannins and lots of new wood that needs time to integrate. Try in 2017." (2/2013) 91 points Wine Spectator: "A bit backward still, with more alder and mesquite leading the way, while the lightly mulled plum, blackberry and black currant fruit sits in the wings. Dark ganache and a chewy, tarry finish keep this shrouded for now, but there's good stuffing for the cellar. Yet likely to stay on the slightly rustic side of th ...Read More »

Some oak is present, but this is a mid-weight, savory, broad and disarming wine to drink over the next 10-15 years." (2/2013) 88-91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated red. Cherry-vanilla, cassis and violet on the nose. Juicy and sweet, offering creamy red cherry and blackcurrant flavors and a repeating note of vanilla. The finish lingers with a spicy floral note.

It’s bright, fruity and layered with acidity, and the firm tannins show through slowly, offering power and density for the medium-term."

Rock-solid and nicely balanced, this should age elegantly. Best from 2014 through 2024.

2010 Gloria, St-Julien (1.5L)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Gloria is an ass-kicking, fabulous value once again from this estate, which would probably be classified if the 1855 hierarchy of the wines of the Medoc were ever done again. Abundant notes of cedar wood, fruitcake, flowers, creme de cassis and kirsch are all present in this full-bodied, opulent, dense, dark ruby/purple wine. It is slightly more restrained than the flamboyant 2009, but equal in quality. This is a juicy, well-proportioned, sensationally concentrated, super-ripe Gloria to drink over the next decades. Of course, it is a sleeper of ...Read More »

2010 Canon-La-Gaffelière, St-Emilion

96 points Wine Spectator: "*Ranked #2 on Top 100 Wines of 2013* This takes the power of the vintage and puts it in its pocket for later, preferring instead to let mouthwatering briar, loganberry, mulberry and blackberry fruit strut its way forward, enlivened with roasted wood spice and supported by suavely but thoroughly embedded iron-tinged structure. Should cruise for two decades. Best from 2016 through 2035."

2010 Belair-Monange, St-Emilion
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2010 Belair-Monange, St-Emilion (96RP, 95JS, 95WE, 94WS, 93ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An absolutely magnificent wine from Christian Moueix and his son Edouard, this wine is right up there with their 2009 and may eclipse it in terms of its potential longevity. Dense purple, with a near-liqueur of crushed rocks and chalk intermixed with blueberry, black raspberry and cassis, this wine is very full-bodied for a Belair, with ethereal complexity and impressive texture and length ...

2010 Larcis Ducasse, St-Emilion (3L)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The wine boasts 14.6% natural alcohol and is a final blend of roughly three-fourths Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc, cropped at a ridiculously low 19 hectoliters per hectare. Notes of licorice, garrigue, incense, smoked meats, espresso, creme de cassis and blackberry liqueur jump from the glass of this unbelievably intense wine. Remarkably full, with compelling freshness and precision, this is a fabulous effort in 2010. It will probably close down over the next several years, and not re-emerge for at least a decade, something that often happens with t ...Read More »

2010 Canon, St-Emilion

96 points James Suckling: "Wonderful nose with strawberries, cherry blossom, and vanilla. The red opens up with blueberries, milk chocolate and sweet licorice. Full and juicy on palate with pure dark fruit and velvety tannins. So nicely layered texture and long in the finish with red fruit and crushed chalk. The texture is superb." (11/2013) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Powerful, complex and ripe, this is a magnificent and concentrated wine. Juicy blackberry fruits, tight acidity and finely integrated tannins give a smooth, rich texture. This beautiful wine has long-term aging potential. ...Read More » 



2010 Lynch-Moussas, Pauillac(1.5L)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "One of the chateaus owned by négociant Borie-Manoux, Lynch-Moussas has produced a fine, stylish 2010, which is firmly based on Cabernet Sauvignon. The fruit is rich and ripe, dominated by a blackberry note and underpinned by tannins. This is a chateau to watch. (RV)" (2/2013) 92 points James Suckling: "Aromas of fresh herbs and berry with chocolate powder undertones. Full and very velvety with a lovely finish. Needs at least five years to soften." (2/2013) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 is a strong effort and one of their best wines in a generation or more. Some toasty oak seems relatively strong, but not ...Read More »

2010 Le Petit Cheval, St-Emilion New!
2010 Le Petit Cheval, St-Emilion

95 points James Suckling: "The second wine of Cheval shows such glorious yet subtle fruit with chocolate, dark berries such as blackberries, and a light spice character. A walnut undertone. It's soft and silky with wonderful balance and beauty. It goes on for minutes." (11/2013) 92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Barrel Sample* Great dusty tannins, almost too powerful, very solid in character. The wine is chunky, allowing juicy fruits to show. It is a dry wine, certainly not hard. (RV)" (6/2011) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The best second wine I have ever tasted from Cheval Blanc is the 2010 Le Petit Cheval. This wine is essentially three-fourth ...Read More »
