Wine Advocate | Rating: 92There are three barrels of 2010 Clos de Vougeot from the top, middle and bottom of the vineyard. The nose is more reticent than the Echezeaux at first, although it slowly unfolds with hints of powdered chalk informing the fresh red brambly fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with a crisp, poised entry. At the moment it needs to develop a little more fruit and flesh in the middle that is a tad hard at the moment, although it should develop more fatness after bottling. The finish is precise, but conservative, perhaps a little more abrupt than the Echezeaux. Drink 2014-2025.Author: Neal Martin
International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93Medium red. Reticent aromas of redcurrant and pepper. Rich and chewy, but with a slightly rougher texture and more obvious tannins than the grand crus from Gevrey. Red fruit and saline soil tones take on a youthful medicinal toughness on the back end.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: January/February 2012
Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, and reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
