2010 Château Les Moines, Cru Bourgeois Médoc
Château Les Moines is an outstanding 2010 claret that "should be knocked back with abandon". It is a perfect example of a superb Cru Bourgeois from one of the greatest vintages (along with 2005 and 2009) of modern times. With over eight years of bottle age and now fully mature, it is a shining example of how good claret at under £20 a bottle can be. Wines from the top-scoring 2010 vintage are disappearing from the market so please enjoy this one while you can – and it will cellar for another five years too.
This mature claret from the legendary 2010 vintage is rich and smooth with great balance. It is full and round with a nose of dark fruits including cassis, blackberry and plum, with delicious complexity on the pallet and finely-balanced oak. It will be at its peak for a good few years yet and is a brilliant food wine.
"Top Cabernet Sauvignon: Classy cru bourgeois claret, with gorgeous, rich, tarry, beef tea fruit."
Jane MacQuitty, The Times (April, 2021)
"A fine Cru Bourgeois claret that always goes down a storm with readers and rightly so. A blend of 70 per cent Cabernet Sauvignon and 30 per cent Merlot from a 10/10 vintage, its resolutely in its prime with buckets of spicy, plummy fruit, and should be knocked back with abandon."
Jonathan Ray, The Spectator
