Chateau Blaignan Médoc 2010
Aromatic hints of new wood translate onto the smooth palate. It has smoke and black currant flavors, with tannins that are already well integrated. Attractive acidity gives this a final lift. Keep it for 5-6 years.
This shows a noticeable green pepper note that runs through the plum, blackberry and roasted wood spice flavors, lingering on the finish. The rustic herbal edge is atypical for this vintage. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2014. 1,000 cases imported.
