Glen Carlou Grand Classique 750ml 2010        
Sku: 1688356*

Tasting notes
COLOUR - Deep ruby red, intense and brilliant >NOSE - Cloves, sandalwood, fresh cassis berries
PALATE: Ripe tannin, clean intense fruit, black berries. Taste holds in the mouth with excellent balance

This wine follows the "classic” style blends that we have been making from our first vintage in 1989. A soft, rich wine with fruit forward character. It is ideal to drink now with rich food and red meat dishes. The classic tannin structure will allow the wine to mature well for up to ten years.


Rating
 Wine Advocate 88 points (Oct 2013)
The 2010 Grand Classique is a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Malbec, 16% Merlot, 12% Petit Verdot and 4% Cabernet Franc and is matured in 60% new French oak, the remainder second fill, for 18 months. It has a little more complexity on the nose compared to the 2009 Gravel Quarry, with lifted red berries, bergamot and salted licorice scents. The palate is well-balanced with a lithe, supple opening. There is a touch of sea salt infused into the plush black fruit, but it retains fine balance on the finish. Drink now.

A broad, plush, well-toasted style, with ganache and mint notes backed by flavors of fleshy plum sauce and blackberry preserves. A big, mouthfilling, crowd-pleasing style, delivering a plush finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2016.—J.M.
