2010 Brillette, Moulis

SKU #1306354 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Another superb over-achiever from the appellation of Moulis in the Medoc, this wine, a blend of 48% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, shows lots of licorice, barbecue smoke, charcuterie, plum and black currants. It hits the palate with a medium to full-bodied opulence. The tannins are sweet and the acidity adequate to provide definition and vibrancy. This is a beauty. An outstanding effort from proprietors, the Flageul family. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2013)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Pure, lush and caressing, with lovely mouthfeel to the layers of dark plum, steeped fig and blackberry coulis fruit, which glide along while hints of singed sandalwood, black tea and black licorice fill in through the finish. Drink now through 2023. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2013)

A rich, elegant, high-toned wine from the classic 2010 vintage, the Brillette is a serious overachiever in its category, imbued with a judicious, savory blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. It offers a lovely bouquet of seductive ripeness and textural, mouthwatering layers of dark cherry, black plum, blackcurrants and mineral earth, with fine tannins and a fairly opulent finish. Drink or hold for six more years.

This is dark and generous with black cherry fruit, vanilla and toast layered through the firm middle. The sleek, sweet finish has hints of clay, touches of mineral and plenty of tannin. Shows the power of the vintage so decant.

Sweet and lovely for a 2010, but the tannin creaps up on the back palate. Tons of spicy fruit, but decant an hour before serving
Drink from 2018 to 2028

2010 was such a big vintage, its nice to see a wine with such beauty and restraint. The wine shows a lot of spice and that touch of green bell pepper that lets you know the cabernet was picked at the perfect ripeness.
