Chateau D'Agassac 2010 (France: Bordeaux)

Name Chateau D'Agassac 2010
Varietal Haut-Medoc Bordeaux
Region France: Bordeaux
Notes "A superb wine from the Southern Medoc, this blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc is a real sleeper of the vintage. Floral notes intermixed with forest floor, black currant and some subtle smoke and truffle are all present in this seriously endowed, full-bodied wine that is performing beautifully. Located not that far from the classified growth La Lagune, D’Agassac has hit pay dirt with this beauty." (Robert Parker, Wine Advocate) 50% Merlot, 47% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc.

Additional Notes

"The vineyards of the beautiful medieval chateau of d’Agassac have produced a firmly structured, fruity, black-currant-flavored wine. It’s fragrant and packed with acidity, boasting tannins that suggest aging over many years." (Wine Enthusiast) "Sappy and energetic, with licorice snap, plum pâte de fruit and dark cassis notes coursing along, all fueled by a graphite spine that drives the focused finish. Drink now through 2017. 20,000 cases made." (Wine Spectator) "Wild, dark aromas of black fruits, coffee, minerals and violet. Rich, dense and creamy, with considerable power to the blackberry, pepper and grilled meat flavors. Finishes taut, with big, dusty tannins and good persistence." (Vinous)
