Olivier Bernstein Clos Vougeot Grand Cru 2010
The wine is firm, powerful and develops aromas of ripe black fruit. It may not be approachable in youth, thanks to its tighter tannic structure, but it conceals an amazing complexity and great minerality that just needs time to express itself.

Stephen Tanzer – A brooding and reserved nose speaks primarily of intensely earthy dark berry fruit and game hints that precede the rich, complex and very serious middle weight plus flavors that display excellent intensity and stunning amounts of dry extract on the driving and explosive finish. This firmly tannic and youthfully austere effort is very much fashioned in the vein of a classic Clos de Vougeot and I especially admire the impeccable balance that should allow it to age for many a year. In a word, terrific.
Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – The 2010 Clos Vougeot impresses with its length and sheer purity. Red berries, flowers, mint and crushed rocks are all woven together in a focused, vibrant wine of notable pedigree. A virile, imposing finish rounds things out in style. There is no shortage of personality here. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030.
