Top 8 2010 Burgundy

1. Domaine Drouhin Beaune Premier Cru Clos des Mouches (2010)

Average price: $106.99 from 3 stores
This is dark and oaky on the nose with lots of high-class wood, a touch of smoky minerality and a back note of gaminess, all wrapped in very ripe dark cherry and blue pinot fruit that screams New World. Round and plump if quite silky in the mouth with soft tannins and well-integrated acidity supporting dark fruit that is accented with briar notes and obvious wood in the mouth. The mid-palate seems a bit hollow, though there is fine length here, even if it is spiced and sweetened by the wood. Not what I look to Burgundy for. 87pts
