Moderate reduction renders the nose unreadable for the moment though there is excellent volume and phenolic ripeness to the generous and impressively rich medium-bodied flavors that possess an opulent even juicy texture yet the overall palate impression is a serious wine of power and grace. This is a bit awkward today but everything is here for this to mature into potentially sensational juice.

Floral and spice notes appear later as the wine fleshes out beautifully on the mid-palate and finish. This is an especially generous supple 2010 loaded with radiance and sheer class. I loved it. Even with all the richness there is plenty of focus and minerality to give the wine its sense of proportion. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030. -Antonio Galloni

Round and plush yet primary and hard to taste. Quite plump for the vintage but without the finesse or precision of the Grands-Echezeaux. Distinctly fat and sweet but I wanted more high notes. This round wine finishes very ripe and smoky with building tannins. Perhaps simply a bit muted today by the element of reduction. This will need another look after the bottling.
