Château Les Moines, Cru Bourgeois, Médoc 2010
Château Les Moines 2010 is, at last, back in stock as part of our first post-Brexit delivery, gratefully received. The wine is superb and occupies a special corner in my cellar - really good affordable claret like this, and from one of the greatest vintages of modern times, has virtually disappeared from the market just as it approaches full maturity.
Château Les Moines however, is only released when the estate considers that wines are close to peak drinking, as it is now the case with its 2010. With over 8 years of bottle age, this top Cru Bourgeois is a shining example of how good claret at under £20 a bottle can be.
My tasting note: laced with dark fruit flavour (cassis, blackberries, plums and more) with delicious complexity and just the right amount of oak. It is drinking beautifully now and will for the next 3-4 years.
