Chateau Brillette Bordeaux 2010

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. Another superb over-achiever from the appellation of Moulis in the Medoc, this wine, a blend of 48% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, shows lots of licorice, barbecue smoke, charcuterie, plum and black currants. It hits the palate with a medium to full-bodied opulence. The tannins are sweet and the acidity adequate to provide definition and vibrancy. This is a beauty. An outstanding effort from proprietors, the Flageul family. (RP) Decanter: 83 Points overall, Drink: 2014 - 2022. Powerful, spicy black fruits nose, with a good deal of oak and a slight raisiny character. Rich, broad, fleshy, succulent, and backed by hefty tannins. It’s quite extracted and chocolaty, and a bit over the top. Quite good length, chewy finish.
