The Destieux '10 has a rich decedent bouquet with layers of dark cherry fruit vanilla and a touch of yellow plum. Fine delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with fine quite supple tannins good acidity lacking just a little weight towards the finish with good linearity. This may merit a higher score after bottling. Very fine.
