92-95 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2010

Medium bright yellow. Very spicy aromas of apple and clove, with intriguing suggestions of pepper and wild herbs. Dense, tactile and solid, with a sweetness that almost suggests some residual sugar. Mounts impressively on the chewy, palate-staining finish, which throws off late notes of menthol and crushed stone. Not at all a heavy wine, but does it have the tension to become a topnotch Montrachet? I find this a bit inscrutable today. Riffault says all these 2009s finished with one gram per liter of r.s. or less (in contrast, the 2008s finished with up to 2.5 grams), but these grand crus convey more sweetness than the numbers would suggest.
