The 2010 Clos de Vougeot is delicate and even a touch fragile. Sweet red berries, crushed flowers, mint and minerals are some of the notes that emerge from the glass. This is a typical, intense Clos Vougeot that needs time for the tannins to soften. The 2010 impresses for its pure energy and grace. Here, too, the tannins are firm, yet also exceptionally polished. Charlopin did less pigeage (punchdowns) here with the goal of keeping the tannins soft. It certainly looks like he succeeded. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030. ||Vintage 2010 is very strong across the board Chez Charlopin. I found much to like in these beautiful, articulate wines. Like many of his colleagues who favor a bold, fruit-driven style, Charlopin benefited from a long, cold growing season that helped balance some of the overt notes that are typically present in his wines. The 2010 harvest began on September 25 and finished on October 14. All of the wines were made with 100% destemmed fruit and aged in 100% new oak barrels. Some of the wines were slightly chaptalized, which was common in 2010. Only the Bourgogne Franc de Pied was too reduced to evaluate. Wine Advocate.February, 2012
