From Cork Exclusive:
“Unexpectedly approachable, this 2010 Bordeaux has well balanced acidity, with a long, smooth finish. Coffee bean, licorice, vanilla, intense plum, imbued with a hint of eucalyptus on the nose. Earthy, yet exploding with dark fruit. This is a forward, easy to like, crowd pleasing Bordeaux.

The 2010 Chateau Rollan De By Cru Bourgeois Medoc Bordeaux begins with aromas of black cherry, cedar, plum and even a hint of apple and mint. It’s a rather fascinating nose with lots of subtleties and quite fun to smell. Tasting the wine reveals more black cherry along with black currant, raspberry and blackberry fruit. Add in licorice, a little cola, more cedar and some oaky spice and this is adding up to be quite a nice wine. A wonderful smooth texture and good structure round this one out. It ends dry, long and grippy with hints of graphite.
