What really outlines the 2010 vintage, is the intensity of its aromas, as well as the almost perfect balance between fullness and freshness, giving elegant wines you may appreciate when they are young. Nevertheless, you should thoroughly “forget” some bottles in your cellar to let them ripen for years.
“This is a great vintage that comes close in quality to 2007 in the southern Rhône. Some producers think 2010 eclipses 2007 because of the wines’ vivid freshness and focus. […] In fact, 2010′s paradox is that I can’t remember a vintage so concentrated, powerful and rich that also has such zesty acidity…” (R Parker Wine Advocate)
