    August 2, 2020 - Drank over three nights, with relative consistency over all three. Dark fruits but certainly not fruity. What was most noticeable was the mouthfeel: quite glossy. Much improved over 4 years ago.

    June 29, 2020 - Bordeaux 2010 - 10 Years - 61 Reds: Bordeaux 2010 after 10 years. 61 reds, mostly big names, tasted blind. Average score 92.1 and lower than the more open and charming 2009 vintage last year (93.4). A few observations: A) It’s not yet the harmonious, complex, classic, clean vintage. Especially the masculine appellations of the left bank need at least 5 more years to just open up, potentially longer to soften. B) Left bank trumps right bank thanks to less detectable alcohol, cleaner lines and the two best wines of the vintage (Mouton, Margaux). C) Pomerol shines bright with many strong wines which can all mask the high alcohol levels (best AOC slightly ahead of Pauillac). D) As in 2009, there are several right banks already past peak, incl. big names (Duffau Lagarosse, Ausone). All in all, 2010 is a very good vintage with pockets of greatness but today 2009 shows more open and hence complex. More information, top and worst 10 list, appellation rankings from five participants in the story link.

    TN: Haven‘t even heard about this winery yet but it was a pleasent surprise with a quite open nose and palate with dark and red fruit, cola, mineral notes embedded in a fine structure. Not overly complex and the alcohol is shwoing a bit but with good precision and balance.

    Decanting: No extensive decanting necessary.

    Group average: 92.8
    Group rank: number 30 out of 61 wines

    June 21, 2020 - Grand Bordeaux 2010 ten years on tasting; 6/21/2020-6/22/2020 (Fribourg): Big Bordeaux 2010 2-day horizontal hosted by a private collector. My 3 main takeaways from the vintage were 1) more frequent perception of heat, 2) a slightly stronger left bank and a less consistent right bank, 3) while in general it is still too early to pop the 2010s, wine selection is key as some appear to be in decline already, especially on the right bank. The top wines were Mouton (99), Margaux (98) and VCC (98). The biggest positive surprise was Clos Manou (95). Biggest disappointment was Pape Clement (86). More details and complete tasting overview included in the tasting story.

    Tasting note:
    A nice, toasted nose with roasted coffee beans, intense fruit and juicy palate with great tension.

    June 21, 2020 - Gorgeous deep red. Beautiful fruit with light tannins and good backbone. Medium finish. Overall a nice wine. Drinking well but good still wait another few years and it will be as solid or better.

    June 9, 2020 - Very modern iteration of Bordeaux. Ripe, clean, classic tannins, plums, black olive, touch of pencil shavings, chewy and long finish. This is outstanding and approachable, but certainly in very early maturity.
