WINE OF THE DAY 3/1/16 2010 Drouhin Charmes-Chambertin $100

March 1, 2016

The 2010 Charmes-Chambertin is a big, textured wine loaded with fruit. It comes across as a bit reticent, despite its considerable density and pure energy. The seductiveness needs time to blossom here, but the wine-s textural finesse suggests that the only thing missing is time. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2030. This is an impressive showing from Drouhin. In my view the 2010s are more interesting and transparent than the 2009s. Veronique Drouhin describes 2010 as a vintage with long-term aging potential, which certainly seems to be the case. Some of the wines were vinified with a portion of whole clusters, including the Corton-Bressandes, Petits-Monts, Charmes and Musigny.
