The 2010 Corton-Charlemagne is deep, rich and totally satisfying. Layers of fruit fill out on the mid-palate while adding a mineral register that is highly attractive. The 2010 reveals considerable energy and focus through to the vibrant mineral soaked finish. This is a highly promising Corton-Charlemagne. Anticipated maturity: 2012+. ||This is a fabulous set of wines from Bruno Clair and his long-time oenologist Philippe Brun. The harvest started on September 25. Yields were 22-30 hectoliters per hectare, which is to say a good 10% less than 2003, a torrid vintage marked by tiny yields. Clair describes the fruit as healthy, with no botrytis and soft tannins from the late harvest. The 2010s were 100% destemmed. New oak ranged from 25% for the villages to 50% for the Grand Crus, except for the Marsannays, which saw very little new oak.||A Becky Wasserman Selection, Le Serbet, various American importers, including: Martin Scott Wines, Little Neck, NY; tel.
