Château Le Thil Comte Clary Pessac Leognan 2010
|Brand||Château Le Thil Comte Clary|
Wine AdvocateA stunning sleeper of the vintage, this blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon was made by winemaking guru/consultant Stephane Derenoncourt. The wine's 14.5% alcohol tells you something about its amazing richness and intensity. Aromas of smoke, lead pencil shavings, sweet kirsch and black currants soar from the glass of this medium to full-bodied, opulent, fleshy wine. Some tannin lurks beneath the surface, but the overall impression is one of opulence and extravagance. Drink this beauty over the next decade or more.
Wine SpectatorStrikes a strong pose, with dark, slightly roasted fig, plum and blackberry fruit backed by scorched earth, smoldering charcoal and tobacco notes. Shows energy and verve from start to finish. Best from 2015 through 2025.
