2010 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc Top Pick!
2010 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc

94 points James Suckling: "A wine with blueberry and mineral aromas follows through to a full body, with fine tannins and a juicy finish. Best for years from here. Needs at least three years of bottle age to soften. Could be better than 2009 in the long run." (2/2013) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The wine needs a good 7-10 years of cellaring and should keep for 30 more years, but this is the finest Cantemerle I have encountered in my professional career of tasting young vintages (dating back 34 years now). Stunningly deep ruby/purple, with a beautiful nose of spring flowers intermixed with perfumed raspberry an ...Read More »

(11/2013) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Lynch Bages is an absolutely brilliant wine, and somewhat reminiscent at this stage in its development of the profound 1989.

2010 Fleur de Pedesclaux, Pauillac

This is the second wine of Château Pedescalux, a Pauillac property that offers a lot of bang for your buck. The Fleur de Pedesclaux is softer and more approachable, but in the same modern style, with plenty of fruit but softer tannins. A blend of 50% Cab, 45% Merlot, and 5% Cab Franc. This property is on a roll. (Clyde Beffa, K&L Staff Member)

2010 Fourcas Hosten, Listrac

There is some extraction and a strong wood element, although the wine does profit from its freshness." (6/2011) 90 points James Suckling: "Lovely aromas of flowers and berries follow through to a full body, with fine tannins and a fresh finish. So drinkable now but better in 2016."

2010 Léognan, Pessac-Léognan

This historic estate dates back to the 17th century, when the property belonged to the monks of St. John. It wasn't until the early 20th century that the owners discovered a promising stretch of gravely-sandy soil and decided to plant 6 hectares of grapes, with advice from their neighboring estate, Domaine de Chevalier. Today their vineyards are planted to 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot. With meticulous winemaking, they craft fine wines that stand the test of time. This vintage was the winner of the Gold Medal at the Concours Mondial Bruxelles.

Second wine of Pichon Lalande. Better in 2016." (3/2013) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Vibrant and silky, this slides down almost too easily, with delicious red and black currant fruit laced with hints of anise, violet and black tea.

Very well done. Better in 2017." (2/2013) 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "As Belgrave improves each year, it reveals a character that is close to the elegance and style of Saint-Julien, right next door. This 2010, while dense, is balanced, and its rich blackberry flavor is already integrating into its firm tannins. This should age well for the medium term.

2010 Certan de May, Pomerol

95-98 points Wine Spectator: "Shows stunning depth and drive, with a deep well of blackberry and plum sauce and a lush structure. Superlong, with spice and anise echoing on. A tremendous young wine in the making. Tasted non-blind. (JM, Web-2011)" 95 points James Suckling: "Beautiful dense nose with polished dark fruit, leather and wet forest floor. Coffee, sweet tobacco, and Seville orange. Full-bodied and intense on the palate with polished tannins and deep layered texture. Give it four or five years of bottle age to soften. So gorgeous already." (2/2013) 92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "With huge tannins, very dark fruits, powerful and concentr ...Read More »

2010 Vieux-Château-Certan, Pomerol

100 points James Suckling: "A perfect wine with perfect purity of fruit. It shows gorgeous aromas of blackberries, currants and cedar with hints of chocolate. Full body, with a lovely sweetness of fruit and ripe tannins. It goes to chocolate, hazelnut and spices. Nutmeg too. Sexy and incredible. It has so much depth of fruit and density. Better in 2020." (2/2013) 99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Vieux Chateau Certan, a blend of 86% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, tips the scales at 14.5% alcohol. Production was lower than in 2009 and the alcohol slightly higher, but the pH is 3.7, which ...Read More »

2010 Croix de Beaucaillou, St-Julien (1.5L)

94 points James Suckling: "I love the aromas of minerals, flowers, blackberries and blueberries. Full body with a fabulous texture of polished and integrated tannins. It goes on for minutes. Spicy, subtle fruit and a long and marvelous finish. Currant bush undertones. A whole and beautiful wine. The second wine of Ducru-Beaucaillou. Drink or hold." (2/2013) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "No longer a second wine of Ducru-Beaucaillou, but a wine from its own separate vineyard, Croix de Beaucaillou is impressive. Firm while also rich, it is firmly tannic, superripe and packed with great dark plum and berry fruits. F ...Read More »

2010 Ferriere, Margaux

91-92 points James Suckling: "A little subdued but a lovely freshness and firmness on the palate. Full and refined. Clean finish. Balanced and pretty." (4/2011) 89-92 points Wine Spectator: "This delivers a solid beam of raspberry and cassis, with graphite and spice notes. Lightly firm through the finish, with dusty tannins hanging on the end." (4/2011) 88-91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(66% cabernet sauvignon, 32% merlot, and 2% cabernet franc) Deep ruby-purple. Lovely aromas of flowers and red berries, with hints of bay leaf and marjoram. Then linear in the mouth, but with a laser-like purity and precision to the red fruit and underbrush flavors.

2010 La Mission-Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (1.5L)

100 points James Suckling: "This is crazy. The nose is so unique with the iodine, stones and currant aromas with wet earth and mushroom. Aromas like this don't usually come out until 10 years or so in the bottle. Classic nose for this estate. Full-bodied, with an amazing palate of firm yet polished tannins and a solid palate. So dense and gorgeous. It is really stunning. Try in 2020." (2/2013) 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A strong candidate for a perfect score in about 15 years, the 2010 La Mission Haut-Brion could well turn out to be a modern-day version of their 1955. Sadly (or maybe fortunately) for me, I'm n ...Read More »

2010 Barreyres, Haut-Médoc

Jancis Robinson: "50% Merlot, 50% Cabernet Sauvignon. Good price! I think this one often ends up on Sainsbury’s shelves...? Dark crimson. Very solid and quite determinedly extracted. Briary and with appealing cassis fruit and a little lift on the palate. If determined and if accompanied by chewy meat, you could enjoy this now even though better to wait. (GV) 16 Points" (10/2012) Wine Spectator: "Features good crushed berry fruit, with a savory lacing and a flash of dark licorice on the finish. Fresh and direct. Drink now through 2015. 50,000 cases made. (JM) Web 2013"

2010 La Tour Blanche, Sauternes (375ml)

91-94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright, pale yellow-gold. Exotic aromas of apricot, kiwi and minerals, complicated by smoky botrytis. Very clean and focused in the mouth, with pure, penetrating orange marmalade and ripe citrus flavors lifted by minerals and saffron. Refined and elegant in its mouth feel and very long on the aftertaste. Extremely well done. (ID)" (8/2011) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Lush and captivating, showing layers of pineapple, peach, passion fruit and mango entwined with one another and carried by a bright green almond note through the finish. Not shy on depth, but offers a decidedly prettier ...Read More »

96 points James Suckling: "Ripe raspberries and blueberries with hints of fresh flowers. Deep nose of dark fruits. Full body, with silky tannins and a beautifully integrated tannin structure. It's long and very refined. Better than 2009. Try in 2018." (11/2013) 92-95 points Vinous: "(66% cabernet sauvignon, 28% merlot and 6% petit verdot; 78 IPT; 14% alcohol; 50% new oak) Inky-purple. Intense aromas of cassis and dark plum are complicated by earthy underbrush. Very sweet and supple in the mouth, with a juicy quality to the bright red cherry, tobacco and mushroom flavors.
