"(two-thirds from Chassagne and the remainder from Puligny). Here the nose is ever-so-slightly atypical as there are white pepper nuances to the otherwise more classic floral, spice and ripe pear aromas. There is excellent richness, size, weight and immense power; indeed this is steamroller-like yet there is absolutely no heaviness. In fact, while the intensity is remarkable, the citrusy and bone dry finish is linear to the point of being angular. As such, this will definitely need significant cellar time to unwind and broaden."

"Greenish yellow. Peach, orange, clove oil, hazelnut and vanillin oak on the nose. Lush and voluminous, with considerable power and a solid impression to the stone fruit and pineapple flavors. Wonderfully chewy and sappy wine with a building whiplash of a finish. The sweetness of fruit is nicely buffered by underlying minerality. This may be the richest 2010 that I tasted here today (the alcohol is 13.2%), and will need extended aging."
