La Couspaude 93js 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"One of the finest wines I have tasted from La Couspaude, the oak is far better integrated in the 2010 than in some earlier vintages (which can often be glaringly woody). This is a full-bodied, powerful effort displaying abundant aromas of kirsch liqueur intermixed with loamy soil, earth and spice. Medium to full-bodied and concentrated with light to moderate tannins...91-93" WA 05/11 "Toasty and flattering, offering lots of mocha and black licorice up front, followed by lush plum sauce and blackberry cobbler notes, with solid grip underneath...90-93 (BT)" WS Web Only 2011 "A wine with a lot of concentration, with lots of blackberry and dark chocolate. Full and velvety. Sexy and long. Better than 2009...93" JS 04/11
