The renowned wine critic James Suckling has awarded 11 wines 100 points from the Bordeaux 2010 vintage. Bearing in mind he only gave a perfect 100 score to nine wines in 2009 - often hailed as the greatest Bordeaux vintage for a generation - this can only be good news for the 2010 wines.
So here are the 100 pointers:
- Vieux Chateau Certan
- Le Pin
- Mission Haut-Brion
- Mouton Rothschild
- Ducru Beaucaillou
- Pontet Canet
Suckling singled out the Cheval Blanc as being particularly spectacular, calling it "truly one of the greatest Chevals ever".
In 2011 Robert Parker remarked that the 2010 vintage was special and nearly as great as the 2005 and 2009 vintages. He gave 10 estates 100-point potential.
Capital Vintners looks forward to supplying clients with the fantastic 2010 vintage.
