Château Dassault St. Emilion 2010
Wine SpectatorPolished, fleshy and warm, exhibiting notes of cocoa, braised fig, melted black licorice and dark currant all rolled together and backed by charcoal-coated grip that extends through the Earl Grey-tinged finish. Rock-solid and should handle cellaring nicely. This wine has really filled out since its more modest showing in barrel. Best from 2015 through 2025. 500 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Dassault is a sexy, open-knit opulently styled wine that exhibits loads of raspberry and mulberry-like fruit and a sweet kiss of cherries in addition to underbrush and forest floor notes. This round, fleshy, medium to full-bodied wine is a hedonist's delight. Don't discount the wine's purity and overall equilibrium. Despite its early appeal, it should drink well for 10-15 years.
Wine Enthusiast90-92 So stylish, with its ripe, jammy berry fruits already a pleasure to appreciate. It does have structure to go with the new wood character. Probably not for the long-term.
