Château les Grands Chênes Medoc 2010
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Medoc|
|Brand||Château les Grands Chênes|
Wine AdvocateA major sleeper of the vintage from proprietor Bernard Magrez, this consistently well-made cru bourgeois from the Medoc displays loads of sweet black currant and cherry fruit as well as hints of licorice, roasted herbs and underbrush. A blend of 63% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc, the wine is medium-bodied, delicious, round, seductive and ideal for drinking over the next 7-8 years.
Wine SpectatorA fresh, forward, less-structured style, with just enough of a warm paving stone edge to keep the friendly plum and black cherry fruit honest. Shows a lingering tobacco hint on the finish. Drink now through 2016. 5,900 cases made.
