2010 Haut-Mazeris, Canon-Fronsac

SKU #1139100 91 points James Suckling

 Aromas of orange peels, blueberries and blackberries follow through to full body, with velvety, yet chewy tannins and a long powerful finish. Very structured. Try after 2016.  (3/2013)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The chalkiness of the wine’s minerality struts forth aggressively, as do copious quantities of black currant and blueberry fruit. The wine hits the palate with serious authority, medium to full body, and plenty of richness and suppleness. Drink it over the next 10-12 years, although I think it could last even longer. This 2010 is a major sleeper of the vintage from this outstanding estate of 25 acres, which has produced another terrific wine. Thirty percent new oak was used during upbringing, and the final blend is 80% Merlot and the rest equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.  (2/2013)

88-91 points Wine Spectator

 Offers a very enticing raspberry aroma and flavor, with sweet spice and ganache notes filling in behind. The focused, lightly taut finish has a dash of bitter cherry. (Web Only-2011)


 Powerful, structured but with the minerally freshness of the terroir. More vigorous than the '09. Drink 2015-2022.  (4/2011)

Additional Information:



- 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.


- 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.
