Chateau Barreyres 2010 Cru Bourgeois, Haut Medoc

Item Number: 11 10 339 10

Customer Rating Based on a scale of 1 to 5 glasses


An impressive wine, Chateau Barreyres is a Cru Bourgeois located in the village of Arcin, just north of Margaux on the Medoc peninsula. The vineyards cover some 200 acres facing the Gironde River on gravelly and clay soils. Like Margaux their is high proportion of Merlot in the mix. This 2010 is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot aged 18 months in oak. Considering the pedigree and the fact that it's from a legendary vintage it's kind of remarkable that it's still available, and afford-ably at that. And even better, it's reached a superb peak of drinkability showing lush velvety softness and a complex melange of dark berry, black plum, roasted coffee, licorice and leather. This is one to enjoy right now while it's here. A real winner!

Classic Haut Medoc Character
This screams Haut Medoc from start to finish. Black cherry, plum, cassis and anise on the nose leads to an elegant palate with a lush mouthfeel peppered by dusty tannins leading to a lovely mineral driven finish.

excellent value
The wine is a typical Medoc, intense and balanced and drinkable now. For the price, you can't do better.
