  • Horizontale Domaine de la Romanée-Conti 2010 (Toqué! Montréal): Un bouquet très distinct des autres vins, au profil quasi-rhodanien, sur les fruits noirs, les fruits rouges et l’orange brûlée. Micro-sucrosité en bouche, qui demeure malgré tout très charmante et pleine, particulièrement après deux heures d’ouverture, où ce profil sudiste fait place à la finesse et la rondeur espérées. Un vin plus masculin et terrien. Comparé aux autres vins en dégustation, il paraissait moins abouti et agréable à boire, mais il n’en demeurait pas moins un vin aux qualités évidentes. 92

  • Simply stunning young Corton. The nose is punchy, perfumed and spicy. It smells of freshly grated ginger, pommegranite, blueberries, smoke and sasprilla root. It is luscious and full in the mouth yet has a cool cherry stone heart and superb detail. It is obviously young but so balanced and expressive now and just a joy to drink.

  • 2010 DRC Tasting: Initially this was rather closed on the nose, but over 2 hours with lots of swirling it opened up. Nice ripe red fruit, some spice. Vibrant on the palate with great energy and tension. Bright red fruit with some floral notes. Medium depth. Fine tannin on the medium finish.

  • 2010 DRC tasting (Stockholm): Nose with ripe strawberries, cherries, spice, a hint metal filings, some violets, some balsamico. Elegant and fruity impression, a big nose. Palate with cherries, quite pronounced minerality with mint, high and balancing acidity, well embedded medium tannins, long aftertaste with mineral. Very elegant, no trace of sweetness. Can be enjoyed now, will develop well, 94 p.

    This second vintage of the wine is rather different than the first, and is a much more classical Burgundy. The 2009 was much more Syrah-like, while the 2010 fits into the DRC lineup in a completely different way. A very positive surprise. The best Corton I have ever tasted.

  • Första vinet (av sex) i en provning av DRC 2010.
    En helt underbar doft av jordgubbar. Tror aldrig någonsin att jag upplevt en så tydlig och mogen underbar doft av jordgubbar i ett vin, samtidigt så har den en väldigt fin syra som väger upp det. Helt otrolig balans och ända så ungt och fräscht. Helt underbart!!!

  • This is the first of the six DRC 2010 bottles we had tonight.
    A rare bird, indeed.
    Second vintage for this wine, and only 5.219 bottles were made.
    Compared to the 2009 version, this is indeed a whole other wine.
    Young, of course, but so lovely.
    On the nose it’s meaty, animalistic with a light smokiness.
    But it’s the Pinot meatiness this year, and not as I experienced last year, with Syrah tones.
    Light hint of vanilla and a touch of licorice present too.
    Starts out a little bit closed first with cherries and great minerals.
    Then…BANG!
    Strawberries!
    An explosion of mature and lovely sweet strawberries emerges from the glass.
    This wine is full of lovely fruit but has a great balance with a super nice acidity, the balance is simply stunning.
    I believe that this will turn into a killer wine.
    What a great bottle of Corton this is!

  • 2010 DRC Tasting: Bright cherry nose showing some orange rind and spice notes. The palate shows sweet and sour fruit notes at one moment tart and acidic and then the next moment sweet and full. Overall there is a very interesting interplay of flavors, with medium weight concentration and a seamless texture. This is very DRC, as compared to last year when it showed as an adopted member of the family.

  • A spoiling day, comparing the whole lineup of 2010 DRC. This is more transparent in appearance vs the the VRs. Sweet, delicate nose. Firm acidity on the attack and then moderate complexity kicks in yet in a delicate manner. Red berry fruit which is not particularly dense. Comments that this is less earthy than the 2009 or the 2011, and to me this is the best of the three vintages.
