Modifier Unlike 2009, nothing was taken for granted in 2010 in all Burgundy appellations. The summer heat has not really been at the rendezvous, but the summer back in September and October ensured a perfectly ripe grape. Because of a difficult flowering, causing sagging and millerandage, yields were naturally low with grapes with thick skins and juice concentrates. The wines are lighter than much of 2009, they are both mature, focused and fresh. A balance which makes them easily digestible and facilitates table agreements. 2010 is a great vintage, both in white and red. Saved in extremis by its small harvest (half less volume than a normal year), it displays very tight texture, many dry, well present acidity that will keep its freshness and youth. The low load of grapes and good concentration even yielded more refined maturity in certain exceptional years. It's also a vintage where the expression of each terroir spring, where each wine its original book. The soil outweighs the vintage, which was not quite the case of 2009. Overall, white as red show an enormous concentration, due to low yields; producers who were usually around 35hl / ha fell to 28 hl / ha. This small harvest is not due to diseases, there is not been as severe sorting in 2011 where it has spread to 20% of the grapes sometimes. Spring was relatively dull and harvest, despite the sun was ungenerous. Finally, the quality of the vintage is equivalent between the Cote de Beaune and Cote de Nuits. The whites of the Cote Chalonnaise are also concentrated, this time with a nice acidity that bodes them good guard. On the area of Chassagne, the concentration is once again at the rendezvous; wines looming magnificently, and will age very well. The aromatic expressions are also very much in place. Puligny experienced the same success or even greater, as to meursaults they were terribly promising as they exit. As for Chablis everyone agrees found in 2010 as the best vintage of the last twenty years!
