92-94 Points | International Wine Cellar , January/February 2013
Deep ruby-red. Complex aromas of black cherry, mocha, nut oil, smoked meat and earth. Silky and fine-grained, with impressive density to its dark fruit, earth and game flavors. Finishes with very fine tannins and superb length. May be the best vintage yet for this old-vine grand cru "blend" (DRC signed a long-term lease agreement in 2008 with the Domaine Prince Florent de Merode covering vines in Corton Clos du Roi, Bressandes and Renard). The 2010 is more high-pitched and ethereal, while this is earthier and denser. I may even be underrating this wine today.
