N°10 Cabernet Sauvignon Reviews

Score: 95 | October 27, 2022 | The Wine Independent

Deep garnet in color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon No 10 bursts with notes of baked blackcurrants and stewed plums with hints of sauteed herbs, pencil lead, and crushed rocks. The full-bodied palate is rich and powerful, coating the whole mouth with firm, rugged tannins, finishing long and earthy.

Score: 94 | June 1, 2022 |

Aromas of black cherry, blackcurrant, plum and black tea. Full-bodied with silky tannins. There is mineral character to the solid core of black fruit, helping to give freshness and transparency. Persistent and well balanced. Best after 2025.

Per the always charming Jean-Charles, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon JCB #10 is made to be 10 times as big, and while the #1 release is a seamless, finesse-driven wine, this is more opulent and hedonistic, with an awesome bouquet of black fruits, smoked tobacco, graphite, and lead pencil nuances. It’s a monster of a wine, yet somehow stays beautifully balanced, light on its feet, pure, and graceful. It’s another beautiful wine in the lineup that will deliver the goods over the coming two decades or more.

The 2019 JCB #10 is an opulent, full-throttle wine packed with super-ripe red fruit, sweet spice, white chocolate, blood orange and mint. Readers will find a classic Jean-Charles Boisset Napa Cabernet built on texture and density.
