Amazing 2010 Bordeaux

Another great 2010 Bordeaux from an amazing vintage!
2010 Chateau Landereau Bordeaux Superieur Rouge...$17.99
A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc
Founded in 1959, Chateau Landereau is currently run by 3rd generation owner Bruno Baylet. Nearly 200 acres are farmed in the gravelly hillsides of Sadirac, 12 miles southeast of Bordeaux, in the Entre-Deux-Mers region. The wines are impressive, and offer the hallmark character of traditional Bordeaux in a sleek and modern profile.
Tasting Notes:
Intense and concentrated, with ripe, spicy, cassis and dark
fruit character. Well-structured but with soft, sweet tannins. Produced in a polished, modern style, with a long, persistent finish.  Excellent with red meats (hangar steak, braised lamb
shank) and richly flavored fowl (tea smoked duck).
