Deep plum/purple, Haut-Bailly’s 2010 required some coaxing to appreciate its subtle notes of barbecue smoke, lead pencil shavings and creme de cassis as well as its touches of pomegranate and forest floor. The oak is pushed far into the background and the tannins are extremely silky, but the intensity of the wine is profound and the finish lingers for close to 55 seconds. This wine is ripe yet delicate, powerful yet stylish, and essentially resembles a remarkable fashion design from a house of haute couture. This wine needs a good 7–8 years of bottle age and should keep for 40–50+ years.

Chewy and brambly, but integrated, this carries a very hefty core of espresso, ganache, mulled plum and blackberry fruit. The purity starts to shine through on the finish, which drips with cassis and is threaded with a long warm paving stone note. Tight and backward today, this extremely well-built wine will need substantial cellaring. Best from 2018 through 2035.

From 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc, a blend similar to what they used in 2009, the 2010 vintage is the product of low yields. For a comparison, 2009 was 46 hectoliters per hectare. In 2010, due to the draught and problems w... Jeff Leve. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Haut Bailly 1500ml

62% cabernet sauvignon, 37% merlot, and 1% cabernet franc. It is aged for 18-22 months in new oak. From 27 hectares of gravelly clay soil. Ten percent less production than 2009. This looms much larger than the second wine, with a nose full of spice,... Cory Gowan. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Mission Haut Brion, La 3000ml

2010 La Mission-Haut-Brion: One of the most powerful La Missions ever produced, the 2010, a blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc, achieved 15% natural alcohol (even higher than the 2009's 14.7%). Nevertheless, the pH is n... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Mission Haut Brion, La 1500ml

From 62% Cabernet Sauvignon 36% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc a blend similar to what they used in 2009 the 2010 vintage is the product of low yields. For a comparison 2009 was 46 hectoliters per hectare. In 2010 due to the draught and problems with the Merlot flowering yields were reduced to 37 hectares per hectoliter. Low yields and weather allowed the wine to reach 13.9 % alcohol which is slightly higher than the 13.75 the property enjoyed in 2009. . Inky purple in color with pungent aromas of smoke licorice truffle spice ash tobacco and blackberry liqueur the wine is concentrated deep rich and opulent in texture. With palate staining fruit layers of ripe velvety tannins and a long pure cassis and blackberry finish this wine offers strong competition for the 2009. Veronique Sanders thinks the 2010 is a better wine. I am not sure I agree. But I do know it s going to be a lot of comparing 2010 with 2009 2008 2006 and 2005 over the next few decades. Jeff Leve.

Shows good structure with a graphite edge running from start to finish. This is accessible now featuring pure cassis boysenberry and blackberry fruit displaying lovely flickers of spice and ember on the finish. Drink now through 2022. -JM Wine Spectator.
