Reviews for 2010 Teyssier, Chateau Bordeaux Blend

WS 92
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2011
An elegant high-toned style with violet and incense aromas leading the way followed by more suave blackberry and black cherry sauce notes. SIlky and pure with subtle length on the finish. -J.M.

Smooth opulent with tannins firmly buried in the sweet acidity. Black plum juice flavors go with the ripe fruits and just a touch of spice.

A blend of 85% Merlot and 18-20% Cabernet Franc This has a quite strict bouquet with blackberry briary and a touch of gravel on the nose. Good delineation.

A blend of 85% Merlot and 18-20% Cabernet Franc This has a quite strict bouquet with blackberry briary and a touch of gravel on the nose. Good delineation. The palate has a firm tannic entry; quite masculine but nicely defined on the blackberry slightly tertiary finish thanks to the Cabernet Franc.

The biggest production cuvee from creative/innovative proprietor and wine producer Jonathan Malthus Teyssier can make as much as 15000 cases. It is a property on the wrong side of the road so to speak in St.-Emilion near... The biggest production cuvee from creative/innovative proprietor and wine producer Jonathan Malthus Teyssier can make as much as 15000 cases. It is a property on the wrong side of the road so to speak in St.-Emilion near another overachiever Monbousquet. A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc the 2010 Teyssier has a dense purple color a big sweet kiss of black fruits licorice earth and oak medium to full body generous flesh and moderately sweet tannins as well as a hint of toasty oak. It should drink nicely for 7-10 years.

85% merlot and 15% cabernet franc. Part of the new wave of modern-style wines from the superb portfolio of Jonathan Maltus the Teyssier is the entry level offering.

Part of the new wave of modern-style wines from the superb portfolio of Jonathan Maltus the Teyssier is the entry level offering. The vinification is more akin to Burgundy than Bordeaux which allows the pristine fruit to shine through. Indian spice and cedar aromatics lead into a palate of blackberry liqueur pepper and clove. Medium weighted text book lead pencil and tobacco follow through to the medium tannic finish. Drink on release and over the following ten years.
