Bodegas O. Fournier, Mendoza

B CRUX Blend, 2010



tasting notes:

“The 2010 B Crux Blend is produced from 12- to 30-year-old vineyards blending 40% Tempranillo, 40% Malbec, 10% Touriga Nacional and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Uco Valley, fermented in stainless steel and transferred to new oak barrels for the malolactic fermentation and one year of aging. The barrels were 80% French oak and 20% American oak. It is quite deep-colored, with very ripe aromas of blackberries, dark plums, some smoky notes and just a hint of spices. The palate is medium to full-bodied, with ripe flavors and good balance, ending slightly warm. ”Robert Parker: 90 points, James Suckling : 93 points , Wine Enthusiast : 90 points, Stephen Tanzer : 88 points , Jancis Robinson: 15 points
