Château Beausejour Pentimento, Montagne-Saint-Emilion 2010 Bordeaux Red Wine, $29.99 (seen on the web for $24.99), 90 points, was an opaque ruby trending crushed black currant purple/red with a thin wine ring at the glass bowl's edge.
Upon opening, smells of cedar, blackberries, lavender and violets with hints of truffle were very good though they faded over a few hours.
Nearly full-bodied with good acidity, layered grainy tannins, and a broad flavor profile dominated by an early palate floral barrage which elegantly transitioned toward black fruit and plum.
Finished long on easy spice notes, a well integrated 14% alcohol, and the trailing palate.
Varietals were 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc.
Paired perfectly with my Angus rib-eye and baked potato.
I bought this Bordeaux at the A-Market in Manchester.
