Peter Michael L'Esprit des Pavots 2010
Made from a similar blend with slightly less Cabernet Sauvignon and more Merlot, the 2010 L'Esprit des Pavots represents 1,580 cases. It is a beautiful wine to enjoy now and over the next 10-15 years. Loaded with black fruit, licorice, bouquet garni and forest floor characteristics, it is an opulent, round, delicious 2010.
Dark red cherries, plums, smoke and tobacco all flesh out in the 2010 L'Esprit des Pavots. Floral notes appear later, adding lift and perfume on the finish. When they were younger, the 2010 Esprit and Pavots were similar. Now, with a little additional bottle age, the wines are more differentiated. The 2010 Esprit is a pretty, voluptuous red from Peter Michael to drink now and over the next few years. In 2010, L' Esprit des Pavots is 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot.
