One of the greatest ever vintages...
2010 is one of the great Bordeaux vintages of all time. It was a classical vintage that ticked all the boxes and more: a long growing season, not too hot, just enough rain, no disease and a harvest with all grape varieties achieving perfect ripeness in wonderful late summer weather.
Here are three of the best affordable clarets from that great vintage, all at under £20 a bottle and available either individually or as part of a mixed case. All are close to or at their peak maturity now. You should enjoy them before they disappear from the market as I will be doing!
