• Domaine: Le Clos du Beau-Père
• A.O.C.: Pomerol

"A seductive style of wine from this 10-acre estate, the final blend of the 2010 is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. Stunningly ripe, caramelized, luscious red and plum-like fruit jumps from the glass of this wine, which has sweet tannins, medium to full body and loads of character and appeal. Drink it over the next decade." - Robert Parker Jr., The Wine Advocate, (2/27/2013, Issue 205), Rating: 89.
