2010 Cuvée Prestige, Bourgueil, Lamé Delisle Boucard – marvellous bargain
Perhaps not initially as heralded as 2009, 2010 is a very fine Loire vintage – not only for reds but also dry and sweet whites, which is quite an unusual combination.
From a very good vintage this 2010 Cuvée Prestige is simply delicious and amazing value at less than €10 from the domaine. It has a soft mouth-filling texture of black fruits balanced with a fresh finish. Wines from Lamé Delisle Boucard have a remarkable propensity to age. See here a tasting of their Bourgueils back to 1893.
