In Bordeaux’s fabled Médoc, 2010 goes down as one of the finest vintages of all time, rated 99 Points overall by Wine Spectator. Very few 2010s remain on the shelves, and it’s especially hard to find great values – so it pays to have friends in the right places.

This discovery hails from a top estate next door to Saint-Estèphe – home to Cos d’Estournel and Montrose. Proprietor Jean Guyon has “been doing a terrific job” (Parker). His 2010 is a classic Merlot-Cab, and is “a racy wine of great elegance,” says La Revue du Vin de France. It’s a real treat with roast beef or lamb, especially if decanted ahead of time..
High sell-out risk – don’t delay.
