Château Bourgneuf-Vayron Pomerol 2010 Bordeaux Red Wine in a winter's break-down!


 Why red wine? Well ask the red-breasted American robins looking for a bath this winter! I've talked about robins getting a bit tipsy on fermented berries before, and some of these winter robins just might think that a bird-bath this beautiful just might be heated!
  As for me, after "breaking" my back on chipping and shoveling snow and ice again, I'm now looking to hunker-down with a real hot red wine! Coping with a classic New Hampshire winter just might call for a classic Bordeaux and some great French music too: Claude Debussy - The Girl With the Flaxen Hair

Château Bourgneuf-Vayron Pomerol 2010 Bordeaux Red Wine, $55.24-$64.99, 92 points, appeared near black at the core, trended dark ruby toward the leggy glass wall, and was broadly clear at the rim.
Poured aromatic black grape transitioning to a more soft toasty oak with hints of evergreen.
Nearly full bodied with bright acidity and surprisingly moderate tannin.
Anise with black fruit on oak were balanced flavors, but this Bordeaux's complexity relied more on its hints of coffee and strawberry.
Finished fair to long on the trailing palate with the warmth of 14.5% alcohol, accentuated tannin, tar notes, and white pepper.
