2010 CHATEAU DUBOURG ST-EMILION GRAND CRU
SPECIAL PRICE - $19.99 BTL./$239.88 CASE


Something that just came across my desk - a special deal (at least until it's gone) on a most-delectable Grand Cru Bordeaux from the famed region of St-Emilion!! From a small 6.5 acre vineyard located in the southwestern sector of the appellation not far from the Dordogne River and coming from the much-heralded 2010 vintage this wine is quite formidable for 20 bucks.

A true to form Right Bank Bordeaux that serves up enticing and sustained scents of black raspberry, mineral, soft cedar-box and tobacco which lead into a mouth-coating and supple texture which has the classic finesse of the region. Given the pedigree of the vintage, there is plenty of sneaky backbone and grip here, especially on the long, minerally finish which has subtle hints of vanilla-roasted coffee. An outstanding combo with duck or a pan-seared rib-eye with shallots this undervalued red can be enjoyed over the next 6-7 years.
