Château Hourtin-Ducasse 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon blend

A full and complex mouth. The well placed tannins provide continuity and power to the wine. The cherries sour notes are held by the typical freshness of Cabernet-Sauvignon. A rich and powerful structure. A beautiful vintage for aging that one should have in his cellar. Harmonies: caesar salad, pot-au-feu, roast guinea fowl...

Typical

Mentions:
89/100, Wine Spectator: “Dark and grippy, with roasted chestnut and maduro tobacco notes lending an edgy feel to the steeped blackberry and plum paste flavors.
The smoldering finish lets more bay and sage fill in, but without sacrificing the dark fruit. Drink now through 2020.”

Tasting (February 7th, 2015 – Marc Quertinier, oenologist): Ruby colour, brilliant. Typical Cabernet nose, berries of ripe blackcurrant, smoked. Ripe red fruits notes with volume and a lot of minerality appears with aeration. Precise and long in the mouth with a fleshy and grainy, tensed attack. The finish is fruity pleasant, still a little tight. Wait for him. A promising wine.

Serving temperature: 13-14°C.

Harmonises with: tournedos with marrow, veal shank braised with olives, roast veal with figs
