We opened the 2010 Chateau Franc Boudron this weekend. The right bank Bordeaux was in a box of mixed samples which various distributors had left at the shop for us to try. We intentionally opened this bottle without checking any pricing, but given the overall quality of 2010 Bordeaux we expected great things.
The Boudron is drinking now.
The wine pours with immediate violets on the nose and very polished plum and cherry throughout the flavor profile. The tannin layer is not at all aggressive at first pour. This wine is so nice upon opening that you might pour through it before it actually breathes. What we did find is that time to breath did not change the flavor profile it simply became richer and the flavors more pronounced. Michel and I both placed the Chateau Franc Boudron in the $45-$59 category in regard to competitive table worthiness. We then checked the pricing and purchased all they had available because we can sell this lovely
2010 St Emilion at $25.00! 5% off 6, 10% off 12
36 Bottles available.
All of the very best,
Rex and Michele
