2010 Vieux Château Mazerat, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru
Somewhat ungiving on the nose, with savoury, mineral and complex notes coming through with time in the glass. On the palate, the oak-driven spice melds with dark berry fruit characters and savoury mocha notes. A highly polished wine, with dense, fine tannins and a glossy finish.
“From a tiny parcel of old vines east of the more well-known Angelus estate, near Beausejour-Duffau, Jonathan Maltus produces this limited production blend of 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc. The dense purple-hued 2010 possesses a crisp bouquet of blue, red and black fruits, crushed rocks, spring flowers and background oak. Full-bodied, powerful and dense, it is no doubt meant for long-term cellaring, so forget it for 2-3 years and drink it over the following two decades.” 92-94 Points, Robert Parker
