Notes for Parker Castle Méric 2010
88/100: A very good wine, with an interesting degree of finesse and perfume
There appears to be à lot of new oak on the nose of the Méric 2010, although there is sufficient brambly red berry fruit to support it, whilst scents of iodine begin to emerge with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy dark cherry and cassis fruit. It is nicely balanced.
Parker rating system
The scoring system from 50 to 100 points (Parker Points) is used in conjunction with tasting notes. These comparative tastings must be in the same category and blind.
The distribution of 50 points is as follows:
5 points for the dress;
15 points for the bouquet;
20 points for the mouth (with emphasis on its length);
and 10 points for the potential evolution (aging).
- 96-100 (A +): a wine of extraordinary depth and complexity, a vintage grand;
- 90-95 (A): An excellent wine with great complexity;
- 80-89 (B): A very good wine, with an interesting degree of finesse and perfume;
- 70-79 (C): A pleasant wine, but without the complexity or depth;
- 60-69 (D): a very average wine with defects (excessive acidity or tannin, taste a bit unpleasant);
- 50-59 (F): a wine unacceptable (lacking balance, with large defects, dull or very diluted).
