Capital Vintners

Robert Parker released his scores for the Bordeaux 2010 vintage this weekend. 10 wines were awarded a perfect score of 100 points:

  • Latour
  • Haut-Brion
  • Petrus
  • Le Dome
  • La Violette 
  • Pontet Canet 
  • Beausejour Duffau
  • Cheval Blanc 
  • Pape Clement
  • Le Pin  


In addition to this high count of 100-point wines, eight more scored an impressive 99 points, making the 2010 vintage a ‘Parker-endorsed’ year just like 2009.

The standout wines in the 100 point list are Le Dome and La Violette, both small fairly unknown producers. Le Dome only produces 1,000 cases a year, therefore it is likely to be a hugely sought-after wine.

Generally considered to be more powerful than the 2009 vintage (Lafite 2010, which scored 98 points, has an alcohol content of 13.5 per cent, the highest ever achieved by the Lafite vineyard), the 2010s are proving a hit with critics who enjoy full-bodied forceful claret.

Capital Vintners is pleased to be offering its clients a range of fantastic 2010 wines
