Vintage 2010
Some vintages truly hit all the right notes and 2010 is one such. After a difficult spring, weather in summer right through to the end of the season was remarkable. Sunshine almost every day and perfect temperatures, good night/day temperature variations, and slowly ripening grapes all played a part in promoting freshness, complex aromas and great phenolic ripeness, all contained in perfect harmony. Without a shadow of a doubt, the 2010 vintage ranks alongside exceptional Bordeaux vintages.
Tasting note 
 Incredibly deep and concentrated in appearance and tinged with purple. Intensity reigns on the complex bouquet, where aromas of ripe fruits meld with delicate, sweet, spicy notes. This is an impressive wine, initially supple on the palate, yet swiftly gaining in richness and power. The appealing aromatic intensity is underpinned by delicate, silky tannins, while the accompanying freshness supports the wine as it evolves, only to culminate in an exceptionally long finish. Refined, powerful and well-balanced, Essence de Dourthe 2010 is a resounding success for this stunning vintage.
