2010 Château Bernadotte

2010 Château Bernadotte
A tasting sample from VinUnic. Popped and poured. It opens a bit shy but evolves nicely in the glass over the evening, with a fine, traditional nose (not any over-extraction here) with notes of red and black currants, graphite, a touch of green bell peppers, light smoke scents and some autumn leaves. Very nice with a semi mature feeling.
The taste is finely tuned, medium bodied and refined with notes of dried up red currant jam, cranberries, fresh stables and hints of sugared coffee. A fine, dry finish with silky tannins. Highly drinkable in a low keyed sort of way. The way Bordeaux tasted like 25 years ago when they were young.
Drunk with fillets of veal (the most tender ones I have had in years, from Sweden of course), fried potatoes and a home made béarnaise sauce - a regal combination...
92p   (tasted 2018/11)
