2010 Tronquoy de St-Anne, St-Estèphe

Jancis Robinson: "Two-thirds Cabernet Sauvignon, one-third Merlot. 40% of production. Very sweet and round and low key – rather forward but with lovely satiny texture. A bit austere: tannins on the finish and it does fall away a little bit, but it’s awfully well done really – even if hardly recognisable as a St-Estèphe! (JR)" (4/2011) K&L Notes: This wine is stunning. The little brother of Tronquoy Lalande and owned by the Montrose people, this wine is packed with fruit--lots of cassis on the palate. Smooth and sweet and delicious.More structure than the 2009-great for the cellar.

2010 Lamothe-Bergeron, Haut-Médoc Top Pick!
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. Eerily forward. But a nice package. Minerally." (2/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An ...Read More »

2010 L'Argenteyre, Medoc

90 points Wine Spectator: "Dense, with dark cocoa, graphite and roasted spice notes embedded in a core of fleshy plum sauce, currant paste and blackberry confiture. The long, racy finish smolders with dark fruit. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2020." (3/2013)

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?

2010 Marquis d'Alesme, Margaux

94 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blueberries and minerals with hints of dried flowers follows through to a full body, with silky tannins and a beautifully integrated fruit and tannin profile. Very sexy and refined. So hard to wait on this. But better in 2016." (2/2013) 91 points Wine Spectator: "This is fresh and engaging, with firm but lively singed alder and apple wood notes framing a core of plum, red currant and steeped black cherry fruit. Offers pepper and tobacco hints on the grippy finish. This will need a touch of cellaring to round into form. Best from 2015 through 2028.

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 »

Long finish with licorice and soft mineral notes. Wonderful wine that will drink well from 2016." (2/2013) 91 points Wine Spectator: "This is nicely cloaked with charcoal and roasted apple wood, while the core of steeped fig, blackberry and black cherry paste notes sits in reserve. The well-defined finish is mostly grip for now, but should meld in the cellar. Best from 2014 through 2026. (JM)" (3/2013) Jancis Robinson: "Glossy dark purplish cri ...Read More »

(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. Finishes firmly tannic but not dry, with a strong spine of acidity. This very solidly built merlot-dominated wine should ...Read More »

2010 Gloria, St-Julien

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 »

It's full-bodied, with super integrated fruit and tannins and an intense finish. Best ever from here. Better in 2015." (3/2013) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A sleeper of the vintage, this 2010 is a relatively evolved, seductive style of wine from Lamarque (a beautiful moated chateau in central Medoc). Offering notes of damp earth, tobacco leaf, spice box, red and black currants, and incense, it is best consumed over the next 4-5 years. (RP)" (2/2013) K&L Notes: 91 points, Wine Advocate's ...

Really sweet and pretty fruit on the palate with a nice juicy acidity and fine tannins. Vibrant and fresh with medium body and length. Charming and enjoyable but a bit tight and bitter in the finish." (3/2013) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Features a toasty frame, lead by notes of mocha and ganache. Sleek steeped currant and blackberry fruit sit at the core, with a vibrant graphite edge driving the finish. Solid. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2022.

2010 Lagrange, St-Julien

96 points James Suckling: "Loads of tension and form. It can be cellared for decades, but it’s balanced and beautiful already. Lots of blueberry, licorice and blackberry character. Try in 2018." (7/2014) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "With vineyards in the west of Saint-Julien, Lagrange produces wines that are polished and elegant. In 2010, that style has been suffused with tannins while also delivering a black currant flavor. The wine is rich and ripe, with just the right amount of tannic structure for the fruit.

2010 Calon-Ségur, St-Estèphe

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "*A Top 100 Cellar Selection of 2013* This is an architectural wine, very classical in its structure like so many of the top wines of 2010. It's powered by ripe tannins and beautiful black currant fruits. While the wine is gorgeously ripe, it also has a powerful dark and structured character. For longterm aging." (3/2013) 96 points James Suckling: "Sure pure fruit to this red with a minerality and floral undertone. You can smell the warm stones. Full body, with a beautiful depth of fruit and velvety tannins.

Needs at least four to five years to really come together but so wonderful. Not the amazing 2009 but clearly outstanding." (11/2013) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Gorgeous, flowery, classic Margaux once again, the 2010 Malescot St.-Exupery continues to show virtually no toasty oak, given the impeccable balance and full-bodied, full-throttle style it possesses.

Better in 2017." (2/2013) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "The former home of Alexis Lichine is now owned by a Pacific-based French mining company. The low yields of the 2010 (the vineyard was hit by hail) have produced a smooth and rich style of wine, which is weighty while also showing fine acidity on the finish. This has definite aging potential. (RV)" (2/2013) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Dense purple, with loads of blueberry and blackberry fruit as w ...Read More »

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.

They think the 2010 is even better than the 2009. (I disagree, but only slightly.) This wine has laser-like definition in its an remarkable nose of a subtle charcoal fire interwoven with spring flowers, creme de cassis, blueberry liqueur and spicy wood. Full-bodied, stunningly concentrated, long, rich and moderately tannic, this wine is set for an exceptionally long life of 30-40 years but can be drunk in 5-7.

All the building components of acidity, tannin, wood and alcohol are judiciously and impressively integrated.

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.

2010 Lafleur-Gazin, Pomerol New!
2010 Lafleur-Gazin, Pomerol

92 points Wine Spectator: "Offers a fleshy, corpulent feel, with mouthfilling plum, melted licorice, fruitcake and linzer torte flavors layered and pumping through the broad, well-toasted finish. A not-shy style, showing a bit of punch on the finish alongside plenty of length and depth. Best from 2014 through 2024." (3/2013) 90-91 points James Suckling: "Pretty fruit, with chocolate and cherry aromas and flavors. Medium to full body, with fine tannins and fruity finish." (4/2011) 89 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Always a somewhat rustic style of Pomerol, the 2010 merits one of the highest ratings I have ever given this vineyard. With considerable ...Read More »

2010 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux (1.5L)

95 points James Suckling: "A wine with beautiful strawberry and chocolate with hints of pie crust. It's full-bodied with super integrated tannins and a long, long finish. Needs at least four to five years to really come together but so wonderful. Not the amazing 2009 but clearly outstanding. (RV)" (2/2013) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Gorgeous, flowery, classic Margaux once again, the 2010 Malescot St.-Exupery continues to show virtually no toasty oak, given the impeccable balance and full-bodied, full-throttle style it possesses. Black raspberries, creme de cassis and spring floral notes intermixed with forest ...Read More »

2010 Vieux Taillefer, St-Emilion (1.5L)

James Suckling: "A bit lean, but some attractive blackberry and sweet tobacco character. Medium body. Fresh finish." (4/2011) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium bright red. Restrained aromas and flavors of red cherry, mint, licorice and violet. Offers good but not outstanding intensity of flavor but finishes sweet and suave. Not the last word in complexity or length but nicely made and likely to provide delicious early drinking. Stephane Derenoncourt consults here. (ID)" (5/2011)

2010 Soleil, St-Emilion (6L)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Two cuvees from two separate satellite appellations of St.-Emilion, my favorite was the 2010 Puisseguin St.-Emilion, which was cropped at a very low 31.4 hectoliters per hectare. It offers up ripe black cherry and blackberry fruit with hints of licorice, graphite and forest floor. It is a sleeper of the vintage, for sure, as it is no doubt inexpensive and very accessible to drink. The wine hit 15% natural alcohol, and the production is over 6,000 cases. (RP)" (2/2013) Wine Spectator: "Flashy cinnamon and licorice notes lead the way for soft but persistent plum sauce and bo ...Read More »

2010 Troplong Mondot, St-Emilion - 12-pack in OWC

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Inky, bluish/black/purple, with notes of spring flowers, licorice, camphor, graphite, and a boatload of blueberry, black raspberry and blackberry fruit, this is a powerful, full-bodied Troplong Mondot. All the building components of acidity, tannin, wood and alcohol are judiciously and impressively integrated. It is a blend of 90% Merlot and the rest equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc made by Christine Valette and her husband Xavier Pariente with the consultancy help of Michel Rolland. I-m not sure what the heady alcohol level is in Troplo ...Read More »

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 »
