2010 Clos les Lunelles Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux
-Wine Spectator, 89 to 92 pts.
"A sensational wine made from 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc from yields of 25 hectoliters per hectare, and by far the most alcoholic of all the Perse estates (14.4%), this is also the most concentrated and densest wine of the appellation, coming from the clay and limestone plateau of the Cotes de Castillon. A full-bodied beauty, opaque purple in color, with notes of cassis, black raspberry, licorice and camphor, some smoky oak is also present in this super-intense, uber-concentrated wine, which transcends the appellation. Drink it over the next decade. A sleeper of the vintage." -Robert Parker

"From the brilliant proprietor Stephan von Neipperg, the 2010, a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc that hit 15% natural alcohol, is ripe and intense but exhibits good minerality and freshness as well as lots of blueberry and blackberry fruit, with hints of charcoal, licorice and asphalt. Rich and full-bodied, with no hard edges." - Robert Parker, Jr.

"Very lush and expressive, with caressing plum sauce, mulled blueberry and blackberry fruit and melted licorice and warm fruitcake flavors, all gliding together through the finish. Offers lovely range and a seductive mouthfeel."

This wine was named #28 of Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2013.
"Set apart by range and depth, with gorgeous blueberry, blackberry and plum notes intertwined with additional açaí berry and loganberry fruit flavors. The toasted apple wood frame is subtle and caressing, accented by a lilting anise accent that flitters through the finish."
