Château Hyot 2010 Bordeaux

2010 is suppose to have been a very good year for Bordeaux! Dark in color with a dark red berry nose. On the mid pallet the wine displays some dark red berries and cassis to match the nose. On the medium length finish the wine displays some tannins along with some oak. This is a softer gentler Bordeaux. I would give it an 88 or so.

From the LCBO web site:
Château Hyot 2010 Bordeaux Red—VINTAGES#: 63537
STYLE – Medium-bodied & Fruity
Very ripe, offering saturated cassis, blackberry and boysenberry pâte de fruit flavors that are racy and distinctive, thanks to fresh acidity and sleek tannins. The long finish has nice density. Drink now through 2016. Special Designation: Smart Buy. Score – 90. (James Molesworth, winespectator.com, March 31, 2012) $17.95
