2010 Clos Salomon Givry 1er Cru Buy Here
“Producer note: The Gardin-Perrotto family directs this 8.4 ha domaine, of which 6.9 ha of it is their famous monopole Clos Salomon. The quality continues to climb at this address and in both colors. In particular, the ’10 Clos Salomon is really most impressive.
Tasting note: Here the nose is slightly riper than that of the 2011 version with its fresh and pretty red berry fruit, smoke and earth aromas that introduce nicely rich and very seductive middle weight flavors that possess good mid-palate concentration before culminating in a beautifully long and velvety finish. I like the balance and this should amply reward extended cellaring though because of the abundance of dry extract, it could even be enjoyed young.” 92 points, Allen Meadows’ Burghound
