The 2010 Chambolle-Musigny Les Gruenchers boasts a highly expressive bouquet redolent of sweet red berries, flowers, tar and incense. There is an exotic quality to the Gruenchers that is immensely appealing. Layers of fruit build towards the textured, enveloping finish graced with a last burst of explosiveness. This is impressive juice. (AG)
Bright medium red. Musky raspberry, crushed rock and minerals on the pungent nose. Penetrating and perfumed in the mouth, with the rocky minerality and strong acidity currently dominating the mid-palate. This very tactile, firmly tannic wine finishes with a distinctly salty minerality and terrific aromatic persistence. Conveys a strong impression of terroir. (ST)
This is both ever-so-slightly riper and a bit more aromatically complex as well with pure red pinot fruit that is liberally laced with stone and anise nuances. The rich and supple flavors are supported by phenolically ripe tannins that are almost invisible thanks to the high level of dry extract that imparts a velvety mouth feel to the beautifully well-balanced finish. A Chambolle of refinement but there is no lack of grip here and this should amply reward at least a decade of cellar time. *Outstanding*
The 2010 Fourrier Gruenchers is another excellent example of the vintage. The pure, sappy and very classy nose jumps from the glass in a mélange of red plums, cherries, blood orange, coffee, gamebirds, fine soil tones and a nice topnote of fresh herbs. On the palate the wine is fullish, pure and very tangy, with a sappy core of fruit, lovely transparency, fine structure and a very long, suavely tannic and very pure finish. Just a lovely bottle of Gruenchers. 92+
