ChÃ¢teau-Bernadotte Haut Medoc 2010
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Haut Medoc|
Wine EnthusiastStrong new-wood aromas lead to a palate that is layered with firm tannins, a polished toast character and a sufficient ripe blackberry flavor to balance. This 2010 bottling shows that this is a chateau to watch.
Wine SpectatorRacy and bright, with kirsch, floral and chalk notes. The finish has good nervosité and tension. Tightly wound now, but the length is there. Equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Tasted non-blind. Score range: 89-92 -JM
James SucklingLots of currants and sweet tobacco in this wine on the nose. Full body, with firm tannins and a fresh finish. Tight and silky. Drink or hold.
