Somewhat ironically, this is both more elegant and fresher than the Clos de BÃ¨ze 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 BÃ¨ze 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.

Medium red, a bit less saturated than the Clos de Beze. Pungent aromas of wild red berries, smoke, earth, iron and wild herbs. Almost shockingly silky in the mouth, but with crushed-stone minerality lending force to the blackberry, licorice and earth flavors. Incredibly sappy but edge-free wine with an explosive, endless finish that titillates the salivary glands. Longer than the Clos de Beze but that wine is a bit sweeter today, with darker, more exotic flavors. This Chambertin is not yet showing its flesh but if it puts on weight with extended bottle aging, which I expect it to do, it may eventually merit a perfect score. A monument of the vintage.

The 2010 Chambertin is exceptional for its polish and sheer elegance. Nothing in particular stands out, instead the Chambertin impresses for its fabulous overall sense of harmony. The integration of fruit, tannin and oak is beyond impeccable. Silky tannins wrap around a finish laced with dark red berries, licorice and sweet spices
