  • 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.
