Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Richebourg boasts a huge center of fruit, deeply pitched, expressive aromatics and tons of structure to back it all up. Violets, menthol and spices develop in the glass, adding tons of complexity and character. The aromas and flavors reach a big, expressive crescendo on the finish. This is a fabulous showing from Bernard Gros. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2035. I tasted all of Bernard Gros’s 2010s from tank, where the wines were settling for the winter. As is his usual custom, Gros concentrated the wines 10-15%, and therefore did not feel the need to chaptalize any of his 2010s. He calls 2010 a good vintage for quality but not the wallet, as yields are down 30-40%.
Range: 93-95

This is the village for the most die-hard Burgundy fanatics. Vosne-Romanée has for many hundreds of years been the source of the most sought-after Pinot noir in Burgundy. The village claims six Grands Crus—and some of the most famous at that—but in other villages where owners manage tiny parcels or a few rows of any one vineyard, monopolies dominate the Grands Crus of Vosne-Romanee.

Of these monopolies, Domaine Romanee-Conti (DRC) reigns supreme, claiming not only more total vineyard area than any other producer, but outright owning the entirety of two of the Grands Crus and a majority of two others. In its full possession are naturally Romanée-Conti, as well as La Tâche. DRC also owns most of Richebourg and Romanée-St-Vivant. The final two, La Grande Rue and La Romanée are completely owned by other other produers: François Lamarche and Comte Liger Belair, respectively.

While one could spend a lifetime on the puzzles of land ownership in Burgundy, the point is that Vosne-Romanee contains the most valuable pieces of vineyard real estate in the world. Pinot noir from any of its vineyards—especially from within its 27ha of Grand Cru or 58 ha of Premier Cru land—is going to rank among the best.

The most outstanding wines from this village have everything: finesse and elegance coupled with the body and sturdiness for incredibly long aging ability. They are intensely floral and exotically spiced. Beautifully ripe, complex and ephemeral throughout, they are robust, yet fine-grained in texture. These wines will stay gorgeous for the long haul.
