Bright pale yellow. Extremely closed nose hints at gunflint and menthol. Dense and pure on entry, then as powerful as a solid in the middle, with explosive lift to the flavors of white pepper, mint and dusty stone. Expands with air to fill the mouth without giving any impression of weight. Finishes with a convincing saline tang and outstanding persistence. This has the structure of a top red Burgundy: I'd forget about it for at least eight years.

Boillot's 2010 Corton-Charlemagne comes across as laid back and understated in this vintage, although the fruit seems to gain an additional measure of volume on the mid-palate and finish. Above all else, it is the wine's striking inner perfume and finessed personality that stand out most. Anticipated maturity: 2014+.
