Chateau la Pigotte Terre Feu Medoc 2010
A blend of 50% Merlot and 50%Cabernet Sauvignon, this complex Medoc is drinking beautifully now yet capable of being cellared for another 6-8 years. This wine is a great introduction to the full bodied and food friendly qualities of Bordeaux and Medoc specifically. Full bodied, with ripe red fruit. Silky tannins round out this easy-going and delicious Bordeaux.
Editorial Reviews for Chateau la Pigotte Terre Feu Medoc
50% Merlot 50% Cabernet Sauvignon What a big, leafy, herbaceous, black currant driven nose! There’s some smoke, earthy, and oak in here as well but this is all about classic Bordeaux aromas. Rich if a bit compact and dense on entry. This is gorgeous, a wine with rich fruit that is fresh, precise and powerful yet not sweet, over-ripe, nor weighty in the mouth. The fruit is gentle herbaceous, with flavors of wild raspberries, cranberries and red currant all coming together on the palate over nuanced tea and subtle floral notes. the tannins are ripe yet offer some weight with the acid just where I would want it, refreshing and bright but so very well matched by the fruit. A bit plummy on the back end, then more red fruited on the moderately long finish, this should improve over the short term but is already drinking fabulously today. 88pts
