"copious quantities black currant & blueberry fruit...Major Sleeper of the Vintage" -RParker

If you love Bordeaux do not miss this chance to get one of the historic 2010 vintage's most outstanding values. In the words of Wine Spectator, "The Right Bank's satellite appellations offer extra richness and depth in 2010, and value hunters will want to plumb these areas for smart buys." - Wine Spectator

We've got THE wine to fit that bill. Château Haut Mazeris form Canon-Fronsac. Here's Robert Parker's 91-point "major sleeper of the vintage" glowing review:

91pts Parker

"The chalkiness of the wine's minerality struts forth aggressively, as do copious quantities of black currant and blueberry fruit. The wine hits the palate with serious authority, medium to full body, and plenty of richness and suppleness. Drink it over the next 10-12 years, although I think it could last even longer. This 2010 is a major sleeper of the vintage from this outstanding estate of 25 acres, which has produced another terrific wine." -Robert Parker WA

Clearly Robert Parker is a fan of the Château Haut Mazeris 2010. Maybe two cases?

Here is report on the 2010s when first offered:

We are all lucky if we love great Bordeaux, the most famous and most loved of French wines, Bordeaux has had two of its greatest vintages back to back in 2009 and 2010.

The Wine Spectator rates the 2009 vintage a stunning 97. They rate 2010 a magical 99.
Here is Steven Spurrier from UK's Decanter Magazine: "Bordeaux 2010: "A Modern Classic" Producers and critics are resisting saying 'best ever', but this focused, serious, age worthy vintage that is drawing comparisons to 1982 and even 1947 is certain to set record release prices."

The Wine Spectator's first report: Bordeaux appears to have another superb vintage on its hands following the 2010 harvest. "I'd never thought I would see 2009 again in my professional career," says Paul Pontallier, technical director at Château Margaux, comparing 2010 to the classic-quality previous vintage.

Stephane Derenoncourt one of Bordeaux's most respected winemakers and consultants says" the 2010s have more punch, more terrior, They are straighter, longer, than 2009 - They are really special."

This is Bordeaux at its best (and best value)!
