Chateau de Gironville Haut Medoc 2010
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Haut Medoc|
|Brand||Chateau de Gironville|
Gironville is in the southern Haut-Médoc, close to Margaux, and is capable of producing the same style of wine-open and not overly tannic. At the same time, the black currant fruit is present, concentrated and already juicy. This shows fine potential, so keep it for the next 4-5 years.
Features unbridled fruit, with blueberry coulis, loganberry and blackberry notes mixed together and stitched with toasted anise and fruitcake accents. A touch toasty on the finish, but the exotic profile will win some fans. Drink now through 2015. 3,400 cases made. -JM
Another reasonably priced, overachieving cru bourgeois from the Medoc, this blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot is rather classic, with crisp acids, blue and red fruits (especially blueberry and raspberry), medium body, impressive purity, elegance, and a floral, fragrant personality. This wine should drink nicely for 5-6 years.
