CLASSIC BOURGOGNE VINTAGE
The 2010 vintage had to deal with some difficult weather conditions.
The winter was cold with a lot of frosts and spring took its time getting started. The fine weather finally arrived at the end of spring.
The summer alternated between very hot periods, rain and thunderstorms, which occasionally brought a few episodes of hail.
Bud break: mid-April
Start of the grape harvest in the second fortnight of September
Harvests with a relatively low yield, but in good conditions thanks to the arrival of some good weather.
2010 was a difficult vintage to manage both in the vineyards and in the winery, but it was successful all the same. Perhaps it was a little less powerful than 2009, but more balanced with good acidity.
White wines: good acidity so a vintage with ageing potential
Red wines: low yields but good concentration and silky tannins
White wines: pleasant freshness, balance, superb minerality, beautifully lively and nice tension.
Côte de Nuits
White wines: very aromatic, lively taste and good length in the mouth, full and substantial. Very good ageing potential
Red wines: elegant and rich, aromatic, very balanced, full-bodied, firm silky tannins, good mouthfeel. Very good ageing potential
White wines: very good quality grapes, worthy of a great vintage, aromatic purity, balance and remarkable structure, supple, rich and fresh
