2010 Château Les Moines, Cru Bourgeois Médoc
2010 Château Les Moines, Cru Bourgeois Médoc
"I have tasted enough wines from 2005, 2009 and 2010 to realize that these may be the three greatest Bordeaux vintages I have tasted in my career." Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
It’s hard to know what more reasons-to-buy one could add to the following Decanter review of the 2010 Château Les Moines. That 2010 remains among the greatest-ever vintages? For which you no longer need wait to mature? That the 2010 Château Les Moines is precisely what you’ll love for the fast-approaching ‘Christmas claret’ season?
For less than £20 a bottle? All this.
“A delicious, mature claret from the Cru Bourgeois Château Les Moines that offers exceptional value. Garnet in colour, with complex developed nose of mushrooms, cured meat and cedar spices, with a solid base of red plums and sour cherry. Wood spiced black cherry and blackberry juice on the palate, with a tone of pure tea bitterness. Cocoa powder-like tannins form a decent structure, refreshed by great elegance and followed by a lingering berry juice finish. It is at its prime time now and is perfect with fatty red meat.” Drink: 2020-2024. 92 pts., decanter.com
A shining example of just how fabulous red Bordeaux can be at this price point.
Established on one of the Médoc’s best limestone-based plateaux, the château’s 34 hectares of cabernet sauvignon and merlot are amidst supreme terroir, imbuing fruit with an enticing balance of power, roundness and concentration for cuvées of exceptional depth of flavour. Where, in the 2010 vintage, Château Les Moines realises its full potential.
Of course, such great years cannot last forever; nor does the festive season. Buy a case of 2010 Château Les Moines to enjoy the best of both this Christmas.
"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
