2010 Château La Cabanne Pomerol Bordeaux France Wine Tasting Note


2010 Château La Cabanne  (Pomerol) 89

Medium-bodied, fully mature, soft, elegant-charmer, with a deft touch of cherries, plums, wet earth and a hint of truffle on the nose and palate. Instead of density, you find a light, refined, earthy, plummy wine that is fully ready to go. I'd opt for drinking this over the next 5 years or so for maximum pleasure. 89 Points

Medium bodied, easy to drink, red and black plum filled wine with a slightly rustic finish. The nose, with its floral, cocoa and fresh fruit aromatics is more interesting that what you find on the palate. 88 Points

When to Drink Chateau La Cabanne, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Chateau La Cabanne can be enjoyed on the young side with 1 hour to 90 minutes of decanting. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume. Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment.

The wine is usually better with 4-7 years of bottle age. Of course that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage character. In the best years, the wine will best between 5 and 15 years of age after the vintage.
