Prepare to be excited. The 2010 vintage in Burgundy combines much of what makes this such a special region. Wines of both colours are impressively intense, with lifted aromatics, purity of fruit and marked terroir definition. Following the ripeness, power and weight of the 2009s, the emphasis in 2010 is on the wines’ precision, perfume and clarity of expression.

"I was absolutely delighted to receive a call from Jon King of Avery Wines a couple of weeks before Christmas to say I had won the competition to win a Melchior of La Croix de Beacauillou 2009 in a bottle specially designed for the Chateau by non-other than Jade Jagger! So as both a fan of quality Bordeaux and rock-music you can imagine my excitement at the news! (well there is a sort of connection with the Rolling Stones.) The prize has made a fabulous decorative centrepiece for Christmas and of course a tremendous talking point over the festive period. A prestigious wine like this one from such a fabulous vintage will obviously improve with age, so I am looking forward to sharing the wine with family and friends at a suitable celebratory occasion in the next couple of years"
