Chateau Laulerie Comtesse de Segur Montravel 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

60% Merlot, 30% Malbec, 10% Cabernet Franc Big aromatic of black currant, plum, and mulberry greet the nose underpinned by notes of candied violets, licorice, and dried rosemary with just a hint of vanilla adding sweetness. Opulent and smooth. This has a graceful richness to it, sweet herb studded blackberry fruit coats the palate supported by supple tannins and well integrated acids. the backend picks up some subtle spice notes and plum skin flavors all with a bitter cocoa cast to them. Finishing with power, fruit and freshness this lacks some of the finesse that is Bordeaux’s strong suit but makes up for it with its sheer intensity of flavor, adding hints of blueberries and spice on the fairly long, chewy finish. Does show a bit of heat though. 87pts
