Chateau Motte Maucort Bordeaux Rouge 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Tight and focused on the nose with finely detailed notes of dried thyme, blackberry fruit, old wood and dried rosemary emerging from the glass. there’s a bit of barnyard and a gamy edge here as well as a bit of excessive sulphur. Smooth and a bit tight with a lovely blip of acidity early on the palate followed by a polished, rich and very well balanced mouthful of reticent black currant and blueberry fruit. This is tight and firm and shows the balance for ageing, but probably will hit it’s stride within the year. There’s good depth to the blackberry and black cherry skin fruit with a little mineral edge on the backend that leads to a long, elegant and refined finish which shows lovely ripe tannins and more cherry skin flavors. Mineraly and a bit spicy on the finish, this is a winner. 87pts

Smooth taste that is balanced on the pallet. Good with pasta or just enjoying a sunset.
