Critical Acclaim

"The domaine's 2010 Corton is a much different beast than the 2009. It has none of the early appeal of that year, but instead boasts gorgeous structure, firm tannins and beautifully delineated fruit. It is an energetic, vibrant wine endowed with significant floral lift, intense minerality and great overall balance. There is a cool austerity about the 2010 that will appeal to classicists. According to proprietor Jean-Charles le Bault de la Moriniere, the small, loose clusters of the vintage give the wine its powerful personality. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2030."

"Good pale yellow. Penetrating aromas of citrus peel, spices, metallic minerality and crushed rock. Tightly wound, gripping and deep, with outstanding concentration and clarity and a density of texture that reminded me of the 2005 here. A flavor of candied lime peel is already quite exhilarating but this wine's youthfully imploded character calls for at least seven or eight years of cellaring. Today, this is rather like a tighter version of the 2011, and even more closed than a bottle I rated 94 in Issue 164.
Rating: 94(+?)"

" A very subtle hint of wood frames the restrained, airy, cool and very fresh nose of green apple, citrus and lightly spiced pear aromas that include a touch of mineral reduction. The intensely mineral-driven flavors possess a mouth feel of pure silk thanks to the ample amount of dry extract that buffers well the very firm and bright acidity that supports the transparent, long and refined finish. This bone dry effort is beautifully well-balanced and because of the abundant extract it will be approachable young yet probably require at least a decade to arrive at its full apogee."
