Tasting Notes

Somewhat ironically, this is both more elegant and fresher than the Clos de Bèze with one of the most complex noses of the entire vintage as it combines a seemingly endless array of spice, mineral, fruit and Gevrey sauvage characters. The impressively rich, serious, mouth coating and broad-shouldered flavors possess superb volume and muscle on the sensationally persistent and explosive finish. This is even more backwards than the Bèze and should be capable of rewarding 20 plus years of cellar time as the tannins are also quite fine but very dense. At such an early juncture I honestly can't say whether this will exceed the brilliant 2009 but it just might as the 2010 is clearly one of the best five wines of the vintage.
