2010 Haut-Bergey, Pessac-Léognan
Top Pick!
92-93 points James Suckling: "This is a wine that shows lots of chocolate, tobacco and currants. Full body, with velvety tannins and a long finish. All there." (04/2011) 93 points Wine Advocate: "The Haut-Bergey 2010 has a very concentrated bouquet with dense blackberry, briary, crushed stone and tobacco on the nose that unfolds in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with chewy tannins on the entry. There is a lot of extraction here, but it is in tune with the acidity and the structured finish has plenty of vibrant red fruit and energy to see it thr...

2010 Barde-Haut, St-Émilion
Top Pick!
96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Even better than the 2009, the 2010 Château Barde-Haut offers the same sexy, extroverted style yet has slightly more density and depth. Blackcurrants, plums, graphite, and loads of chocolate notes jump from the glass, and it put its foot firmly on the ripeness pedal with its full-bodied richness and depth, sweet tannins, moderate acidity, and a rockstar of a finish. It's one of the most massive, opulent wines in the lineup and will continue to evolve gracefully for another two decades or more." (03/2020) 94 points The Wine Indep...

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Every bit as good yet in a dramatically different style, the 2010 Château Haut-Bailly has a more chiseled, focused, inward style to go with the essence of Haut-Bailly-like aromatics of sweet red and black fruit, smoked tobacco, graphite, and crushed stone, with just a hint of background minty herbs. It's full-bodied, perfectly balanced, has flawless tannins, and a rare mix of power, elegance, and purity. It blossoms with air, and while certainly mature, it has another 2-3 decades of overall longevity ahead of it." (10/2023) 98 ...

Offers well-integrated structure through the finish, with subtle minerality echoing. Best from 2014 through 2026.

2010 Saint-Pierre, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
97 points Decanter: "Bilberry, cassis, sweet concentrated cherry coulis. From a blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon and 22% Merlot, this is still a swaggeringly tannic wine, with a gorgeous display of liquorice spice. Barely opening up, one for the very long haul. Wonderful example of a Saint Julien wine that is increasingly making all the right moves. (JA)" (06/2016) 97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2010 from Chateau Saint-Pierre is a straight up tour de force that’s an incredible value in today’s market. Inky colored, deep, rich and sensationally concentrated...

90 points Decanter: "Vibrant red fruits nose, with lots of vigour and a nice touch of earthiness. Medium-bodied, sleek, fresh and intense, with considerable purity of fruit. It’s not that weighty but it has exemplary balance and zest. " (12/2015)
Price: $174.99

100 points Decanter: "This vintage featured a cold winter and cool weather at flowering, followed by a dry summer with a hot July and warm days and cool nights in August and September. The season delivered a wine with an inky dark colour and bright aromas of blackcurrant and spice with a distinctive floral edge. The texture is lively and crisp, with plenty of freshness, firm tannins, and impressive length. This wine will be best after another 10 years in bottle and will easily last 50 years beyond that. This superb, vibrant wine is a blend of 87% Caberne...

96 points Decanter: "Somewhat like the white of the same vintage, this is a taut wine, but time in glass yields impressive, cool, blueberry fruit that tastes more youthful than its age. The Cabernet Sauvignon dominates the palate with vivid blackcurrant, graphite and tannic power. Give it another decade and it will gain in complexity and interest.

2010 Giscours, Margaux
Top Pick!
96 points Jane Anson: "High levels of Cabernet Sauvignon, a reflection of how well this grape did in the 2016 vintage as well as replanting in the vineyards, and you start to see the Giscours of today. Beautiful, this for me is hugely better than the 2009, with creaminess to the texture, and plenty of dark ripe fruit character, paired with grip and understated power, opening through to bitter chocolate, sage, liqourice and campfire smoke. Great quality, full of energy and saline kick. Second year with Denis Dubourdieu as consultant, 50% new oak. Simonit ...

2010 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Pure gold, the 2010 Château Léoville Poyferré, which was drunk beside a perfect 2009 Latour, offers everything you could want from wine. Sporting a deep purple hue as well as an incredible array of crème de cassis, graphite, damp earth, leafy tobacco, and beautifully integrated oak, it hits the palate with an incredible amount of fruit and opulence while always staying pure, precise, and as seamless as they come. It shows the density and power of the 2010 vintage, but it’s remarkable in its balance, purity, and length. As with mo...

Chewy with slightly firm tannins and lots of new wood that needs time to integrate. Try in 2017." (02/2013) 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 c...

99 points The Wine Independent: "The 2010 Cos d’Estournel is a blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet colored, it needs a lot of shaking and swirling to unlock notes of crème de cassis, blueberry pie, and Indian spices, leading to fragrant wafts of dusty soil, cigar box, and dried lavender. The palate gracefully grows into a rich, full-bodied behemoth, delivering a rock-solid structure of firm, grainy tannins and bold freshness to support the taut, muscular fruit, finishing long and minerally.

" (02/2013) 94 points Wine Advocate: "The second wine, the 2010 Pavillon Rouge (essentially two-thirds Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest mostly Merlot with small quantities and Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc) looks to be a wine to age for 20 or more years, but it is qu...

Mainly red fruit, lightly spiced and quite minty, I find the finish attractive but perhaps just missing the intellect of the finest wines in the flight. (NM) " (02/2020)

This is tighter, more structured in its concentration, more broad shouldered, but still intensely impressive and full of pleasure. Neither are ready to go yet, but this feels like it will last longer, and feels extremely Haut-Bailly in spirit, with an elegant but complex personality, and a grip that doesn't make a big deal of its power but refuses to give up.
