Acquired En Primeur in 2011 this collection from the excellent 2010 vintage has been shipped and laid down by Waitrose; assuring their provenance. Our Masters of Wine are pleased to say that the first tranche of wines from the shipment are now approaching their drinking windows.
The 2010 vintage
2010 was a great vintage. Warm and dry growing conditions helped to produced concentrated grapes with high fruit, alcohol, tannins and also acidity - the Holy Grail of winemakers. These wines have matured well and are now beginning to show themselves ready for the market. They are wines of density, power and richness of fruit (particularly good in the Medoc). The first bottles we have released from the 2010 vintage and more will follow over the coming months.
