Top Value Bordeaux Tasted 1/14

4. Chateau Clos Moulin Pontet Bordeaux Superieur (2010)

« Prev Next » 4 of 8
Previously available for $13.00
A little minty at first on the nose then turning attractively fruity with lovely black currant fruit over tobacco and dried thyme notes. Soft, broad and fairly ripe on entry. This firmly medium bodied wine has a bit of spicy oak early on the palate followed by rather rich candied black cherry and strawberry flavors. Tannins are ripe and well integrated, lending this a nicely rounded feel in the mouth, though ample acids keep this quite bright right through the moderately long blackberry finish. A lovely bottle. 87pts

  • 490679PMinns Living in France and fairly familiar with Bordeaux wines, I have not encountered any of the above, let alone tasted them...but will look out for them in the future! My personal favourites for many years come from the MILHADE winegrowing estate in Libourne. They have consistently good Bordeaux Supérieur ( Château Recougne and Château Tour d'Auron) a Lussac St. Emilion (Château Lyonnat) and a Lalande de Pomerol (Château Sergant). All reasonably priced at between €8 and €11. 2009 was an excellent year for all these and 2010 is shaping up well. I have seen them on sale in Asia (Seoul) but not yet in the U.S.
