The 2010 Gevrey-Chambertin Petite Chapelle comes across as cool, mineral and closed in on itself. Still, it reveals gorgeous textural finesse and fabulous overall balance. The 2010 floats on the palate with an effortless expression of fruit that is truly remarkable. Deep layers of spices wrap around the sensual finish. This is another fabulous wine from Bruno Clair. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030. ||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.
