2010 was an outstanding year for Bordeaux wines and clearly with the tasting notes below,Chateau Brillette produced a superb wine in that vintage:-

"Another superb over-achiever from the appellation of Moulis in the Medoc, this wine, a blend of 48% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, shows lots of licorice, barbecue smoke, charcuterie, plum and black currants. It hits the palate with a medium to full-bodied opulence. The tannins are sweet and the acidity adequate to provide definition and vibrancy. This is a beauty. An outstanding effort from proprietors, the Flageul family".
(90 Points).

Robert Parker. (The Wine Advocate. 27/2/2013).

"Pure, lush and caressing, with lovely mouthfeel to the layers of dark plum, steeped fig and blackberry coulis fruit, which glide along while hints of singed sandalwood, black tea and black licorice fill in through the finish. Drink now through 2023. 11,333 cases made".
(90 Points).

The Wine Spectator. (31/5/2013).

"Terroir plays a crucial role in winemaking, giving each wine its unique personality. Planted on one of the highest points in Moulis, Chateau Brillette’s vines are bathed in sunlight and share the same rocky soil as many of the grands crus classés of the Médoc region. This soil contains a large quantity of gravel, which attracts and retains heat, creating an ideal context for the Terroir.The relatively high percentage of Merlot grapes (48%) marks a defining characteristic of Chateau Brillette in a region where most wines favour the use of Cabernet grapes. Merlot brings roundness to the wine and allows it to be enjoyed as early as a few years after the harvest. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc grapes structure the wine so that it may also be savored after many years of cellaring. A grape variety unique to the Médoc region, Petit Verdot brings depth of color and richness to the wine. Situated in the heart of the Haut-Médoc, Moulis-en-Médoc is located on the left bank of the Gironde, on the same hills that produce some of the world’s most celebrated wines".
