Chateau Larose-Trintaudon 2010
One of our favorites Bordeaux’s in the shop!
A real winner from this estate, this blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot is widely available and generally sells for under $20 a bottle in the American marketplace. Plump, fleshy black currant and black cherry fruit intermixed with some cedar wood, vanilla, and incense jumps from the glass of this medium to full-bodied, attractive, somewhat denser than usual style for Larose Trintaudon. Nevertheless, the tannins are sweet and the acidity low, so drink this sleeper of the vintage over the next decade.”
