2010 Réserve de la Comtesse, Pauillac
Tasted alongside the grand vin, the 2010 Reserve de la Comtesse is now a very serious wine in its own right. A wonderfully exotic and expressive nose of cassis, apricot and classic Pauillac notes of pencil lead and cedar. A gorgeous satin-like texture envelopes layers of fruit. Cassis, blackberry and chocolate notes are underpinned by super-fine tannins and refreshing acidity. There is a real swagger about this wine, showing balance, purity and grace, but with a definite wow factor.
