2010 Vieux Robin, Médoc

SKU #1499503 90 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A great mix of solid tannins and juicy fruit, this is a rich and structured wine, with the firm character of the year and deep blackberry flavor. It has weight and an edge of spice, finishing with acidity. (RV) Inner quote mark (3/2013)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Dark garnet. Tense and lively on the nose. Really quite exciting in its ambition. Well done! Lots of excitement here. This has held up really well. Long, even if it has more grunt than finesse. Still lots to give. *Good Value* Inner quote mark (6/2019)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A soft, ripe fleshy wine selling for about $20 a bottle, this blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot exhibits a dark, plum/purple color and a big, sweet kiss of red and black currants intermixed with cedar, roasted herbs and underbrush. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2013)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This delivers a solid core of anise, blackberry and steeped plum, liberally laced with racy charcoal and backed by a solid, tobacco-filled finish. Offers textbook Bordeaux character, with the added oomph of the vintage. (JM, Web-2013) Inner quote mark

Another old school wine from a powerful vintage- decant one hour and enjoy or cellar it a few years.This property was a Bill Blatch favorite-and as usual I have never visited the property which is located in Begadan. Château Vieux Robin is a family owned Cru Bourgeois estate located in Begadan at the far north of the Médoc. 5th generation owners Maryse and Didier Robin have made huge strides in terms of quality since they took over in 1988. Didier Robin, who learnt his trade at Château Clarke, is a skilled winemaker and now produces 4 different cuvées of ascending quality.There are only 18 hectares of vines and Vieux Robin is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot.
