Tasting Note:

Bruno Borie's refers to his flagship wine as a 'rock-star' in 2010. This has to be put into context. He referred to his 2009 as an R'n'B artist, given its voluptuous curves and sensual nature. Maybe, we could suggest that the 2010 is more of a 'new romantic', given its effortless style and polished, slick performance. Brooding bouquet of liquid minerals, earth, blue fruits and liquorice. The palate is sensational - globules of sweet dark fruit, wonderful black cherries, cassis, kirsch, massively rich, decadent, with wave after wave of opulent fruit; another large scaled Ducru with splendid ripe, satiny tannins and enormously long, sweet dark berry flavours. 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot.
