Wine Advocate | Rating: 91The 2010 Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Ursules exudes breeding on the nose with elegance to spare. The palate is well-balanced with an insistent grip on the entry. There is impressive structure here, a Clos des Ursules with volume and presence, while maintaining fine focus on the taut finish. Pure class. Drink 2014-2028.Author: Neal Martin
Burghound | Rating: 91The generous wood the cask sample displayed has almost fully integrated though this does open with noticeable reduction. I gave this 20 minutes or so in a decanter which was sufficient to dissipate the funk and to reveal very pretty red and dark berry fruit, violet hints and earth nuances. There is excellent volume to the solidly well-concentrated medium weight flavors that are at once suave but detailed, all wrapped in a tension-filled, dusty, austere and mouth coating finish of impeccable balance. A classic Clos des Ursules that should reward well 12 to 15 years of cellaring.Author: Allen Meadows
International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92Moderately saturated medium red. Began with brooding, medicinal scents of cherry, menthol, licorice and tarragon, then took on an exhilarating high note of orange peel with air. Initially savory and soil-driven, with a pliant, chewy texture but more salty minerality than fresh fruit. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins. As the wine opened in the glass it showed more verve and spice character, suaver tannins and captivating building sweetness. I'd give it at least five or six years in the cellar to sort itself out.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2013
