This is a very stylish, fairly deep and elegant merlot. The tarry, chocolaty oak is almost overly generous and...

The 2010 Grand Cru Château Pipeau has intense notes of black cherry, pine, cigar box, clove, vanilla and faint leather. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry, integrated wine; BALANCED with good acidity, grippy tannins (decant for 30+ min) and a long to extra-long finish. Enjoy this wine on-its-own; drink now – 2020+. My impression: BEAUTIFUL to DIVINE, 92+ pts – recommended for its quality. Tasted Nov/13.

Great aromatics on this Merlot-based Bordeaux — raspberry, cherry, savoury spice, vanilla and plum all do well here. It's a bit hard on the full-bodied palate, with aggressive tannin and white pepper/black tea notes bringing plenty of structure to the plum, cherry and cocoa flavours. Give it a few years to mellow out.
