2010 Ch Escot
Ch d'Escot 2010 Médoc
30% Merlot, 70% Cabernet Sauvignon. Mocha dominates the fruit on the nose. Sweet, rather worked, with vanilla on the finish. Too much make-up for me, too much milk chocolate. Fresh finish nevertheless.
Rated 15/20 - Drink 2014 to 2017

14 Hectares on a clay soil on limestone and sand. The soil is cold, enabling a slow maturation of grapes and thus produces very aromatic grapes. The climatic conditions of this vintage were exceptionally favorable to the cycle growth of the vine and to the ripening of the grapes.
Typical blend that produces the great Medoc wines.

A shiny and deep ruby red dress. On the palate, this wine shows character but will charm : Aromas of vanilla, spices and slightly warmed up red fruits are evenly melted, wrapped by a light wooded presence. The aromas will last on the palate.
The "Château Escot 2010" suits nicely meat such as duck and rumpsteak.
Custody of the wine will be more than 10 years in a cellar at a constant temperature ranging between 12 and 14 ° C
