Burgundy's Greatest White Vintage In A Decade!
The 2010 vintage for White Burgundy is one of the finest we have ever seen. But then you knew that already since we have been shouting it for over a year now.
This past Friday our praise for the 2010 white Burgundy vintage has been supported by the massive reviews that Antonio Galloni and the Wine Advocate have posted. Posted only on erobertparker.com, the Wine Advocate's coverage on the 2010 white Burgundy vintage is extremely comprehensive and holds tremendous praise for the vintage as a whole and plenty of great wines.
So much so that this could easily be the greatest white Burgundy vintage In a decades!
"The 2010 white Burgundies are some of the most riveting young wines I have ever tasted. In the finest examples readers will find superb richness, vibrant acidity and great transparency to site. These are marvelously complete wines that bring together the depth of fruit typically found in ripe years with the classicism, minerality and tension that are the signatures of cooler vintages. That all adds up to viscerally thrilling wines that at their best capture the essence of everything great Burgundy can be..." Antonio Galloni, the Wine Advocate 8/12.
In digesting all the info thus far and still crunching more there are some producers/estates that have just totally nailed it with the 2010 vintage. Those that excelled are some of the biggest names in Burgundy today. One winemaker that excelled in the 2010 White Burgundy vintage was Louis Jadot's legendary Jacques Lardiere, who incidentally is retiring making 2010 his last vintage. And what a vintage to end on! Jadot has turned out some of the finest White Burgundies of 2010 topped off with a near perfect Le Montrachet that Antonio Galloni has given 98 points too!
Other standout producers include two of the fastest rising stars of the region: Pierre Yves Colin of Colin-Morey and Mounir Saouma of Lucien le Moine. A great surprise, extremely well deserved, are the reviews and praise for the Bernard Moreau wines that are now made by his son Alex. We have been following Alex's progress and had a tremendous tasting with him this past February and are happy to see that Antonio is also seeing the greatness in his wines. Of course, some of the perennial top producers are at the top again in 2010 as well like Domaine Leflaive, Joseph Drouhin, Domaine Leroy/d'Auvenay, Comtes Lafon, Guy Roulot and Coche-Dury.
Out of all the top reviews, here are the top 20 white 2010 Burgundies that we have to offer. Every wine in this offer has received an outstanding to extraordinary review from the Wine Advocate ranging from 94 to 98
