2010 Pauillac Cinquieme Cru Classe
This Pauillac 5e Cru Classe reveals a deep, ruby-red colour and gorgeous vermillion red on the surface. The nose exudes subtle notes of tart red fruits along with powder touches, cedar and cigar box. The palate offers a vibrant yet pleasantly fresh attack that quickly evolves into full, creamy texture, with hints of berries.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
This final blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc hit 13.5% natural alcohol. Never one of my favorite wines, the 2010 is certainly a major, if not dramatic, improvement. Deep, subtle, herbaceous black currant fruit, cedar and Christmas fruitcake jump from the glass of this medium to full-bodied, ripe, well-made wine, which displays some subtle oak as well as excellent ripeness, texture and length. It should drink well for at least 15 or more years.
