2010 Poitevin, Médoc
This has ripe and polished fruit, with hints of mint and new wood. A ripe blackberry flavor pushes through the firm tannins, and it should become more rich over the next 5–6 years. The vineyard is situated in the northern part of the Médoc appellation.
*Best Value* Alluring, with a polished structure that lets the smoldering bay leaf, anise, steeped plum and warm paving stone notes play out. Shows latent grip and solid depth. Best from 2014 through 2022.
More forward on the nose, reminiscent of game and cured meat. Very good structure...
Straight and fruity, with fine tannins and a fresh acidity.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 from Poitevin is a straightforward, easygoing wine that displays good fruit, some herbaceousness, and hints of tobacco smoke and roasted herbs.
