2010 Laforge

Size Availability? price? Qty

Average critic rating : 92.75 points



Showing slightly better from bottle than barrel (and it performed admirably there), the 2010 Laforge emerges from three major soil types in St.-Emilion – gravel, sand and hard limestone. It is largely a Merlot-based wine, with only about 8% Cabernet Franc added in. A big, forceful, classic, full-bodied St.-Emilion with sensational depth, the 2010 displays plenty of black fruit, hints of incense, graphite, and forest floor, and perhaps even a suggestion of black truffle. It is deep, full-bodied, opulently textured, yet the tannic structure comes through in the finish. This is another sensational effort from proprietor Jonathan Malthus. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2032. Wine Advocate #205 Feb 2013



Laforge, which takes its name from the trade of a former owner who was a blacksmith, is produced from 92% merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc. Licorice, spicy blackberry and earth aromas, medium/full bodied, round textures and a finish filled with chocolate covered black cherries. winecellarinsider.com
