Wine Advocate Reviews 2010 Merlot

Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate, June 2013

90 Points

"A plump, fruit-loaded effort, the 2010 Merlot (100% Merlot) possesses a deep, rich bouquet of smoked plums, leafy herbs, charred wood & anise seed to go with a mouth-filling, rounded & supple feel on the palate. Firming up nicely on the finish, with solid focus & purity, it dishes out plenty of pleasure & will drink well for another 4-6 years. Drink now-2019.

Meaning “blacksmith” in French, Forgeron is run by the talented Marie-Eve Gilla, who is originally from Paris, France & earned her Master’s in Oenology & Viticulture in Dijon before working in Burgundy. The wines are outstanding across the board & show great textures, integrated acidity & overall very drinkable profiles."
