Château de Malleret Cru Bourgeois Bordeaux 2010, Haut-Médoc, France - $17

     

I purchased this wine at Costco for $17. 2010 Bordeaux are supposed to be amongst the best ever produced because of the weather conditions that year.

This wine is rich, deep, and dry with strong tannins and a dark cocoa finish. It's also slightly acidic, which I wasn't expecting. Its 14% alcohol content is higher than I prefer, and you can feel it on the nose.

This wine is fine if you don't mind the strong blowback.
