"Medium red. Expressive perfume of small wild red berries, smoke and minerals. Silky on entry, then tight in the middle, with a youthfully medicinal quality to the flavors of cherry, berries and crushed stone. Really builds and broadens toward the back end, finishing chewy and sappy, with palate-saturating ripe tannins and an impression of salty minerality. Arnaud Mortet believes the 2010s here have more potential than the 2005s, as he is doing a softer extraction nowadays. 92+ Points." - Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media

The 2010 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru is all about deep sensuality and plushness in the fruit. Blackberries, blueberries, flowers, licorice and spices are woven together beautifully in this bright, highly expressive Gevrey. The 1er Cru has more than enough stuffing to stand up to the new oak, which is 60-65% in this vintage, lower than it has been in the past. The 1er Cru is made from parcels in Petite Chapelle, Cherbaudes, Bel Air and Champonnets, each of which is too small to bottle separately. Tasted from tank. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030. 92-94 Points." - Antonio Galloni,
