This is ripe and dense, with great tannins; opulent, rich black fruit; and a fresh, juicy aftertaste. The structure and the solid texture both point to long-term aging. (2/1/2013) 92

Chateau Hanteillan Haut-Medoc Tasting Note
A little jammy with plum and berry character. Full body with chewy tannins and a fresh finish. Pretty and soft textured in the end. Better in 2014. March 6th, 2013

Drink 2013 - 2020
From an equal blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon with a just a touch of Petit Verdot, the 2010 is dark ruby/plum/purple with elegant raspberry and black cherry fruit, some dusty, loamy soil notes and spice box. Drink this medium-bodied wine over the next 6-7 years. For many years, this reliable estate has been turning out attractive, straight-forward but well-endowed and rather classic Medocs.
