2010 Puynard Tradition, Premières Côtes de Blaye

SKU #1118657

2010 is a great Bordeaux vintage for red wines. This wine was tasted in April with our old friend (and now retired) Bill Blatch at La Tupina in Bordeaux. We bought it on the spot. New wave, jammy style but the balance is perfect and the wine can be enjoyed in a few years or now with proper decanting.

I'm all for inexpensive Bordeaux, and this 2010 is drinking nicely right now. Full of ripe black fruit, tobacco and spice notes on the nose and palate. It's firm, but fresh, which is the hallmark of the 2010 vintage.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Country:

France

- 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.
