Chateaus Dassault 2010 Grand Cru Classe
Francois' French Opinion: Very nicely presented, incredibly deep, bigarreau cherry black robe with a dark purple rim. A deep, classy bouquet which is rich and complex with hints of black fruits, oriental spices, liquorice and gingerbread. The palate is concentrated and powerful with remarkably ripe, blended in tannins, with a haunting, never-ending finish. A massively great wine from an historic vintage and this is no exaggeration. Enjoy now.
