Wine Critic Reviews:

The very best elements of vintage and site is expressed by one of Chablis's true visionaries come together in the 2010 Chablis Clos. The aromatics alone are breathtaking, but then endless layers of fruit flow across the palate, captivating all the senses; intellectual, hedonistic and everything else. The Clos has elements of all the preceding wines in the same way Romanee-Conti encapsulates all the wines at DRC. The 2010 Clos shows great balance and class from start to finish. It is a profound wine to savor over the next few decades, although it shouldn't be touched before age ten. Readers who can find the 2010 should not hesitate. It is a magical bottle of wine.
