See Burgundy 2010 – a complete guide to our coverage – not just tasting notes but much, much more.
Here is the second of our final four tranches totalling about 2,000 tasting notes on Burgundy's most attractive 2010s. The notes below are grouped by producer, alphabetically by (sur)name, whites before reds and wines roughly ascending in grandeur.
DOMAINE PIERRE DAMOY
DOMAINE DANIEL DAMPT – MAISON DAMPT
Unlike the Dom Jean Defaix wines, this one is oaked. Much more savoury. Not more concentrated than the Lys but definitely more complex. This has a sweet/sour character that needs time but the depth and length are impressive – it's just less winning right now than Les Lys. (JH)
DOMAINE VINCENT DAMPT
DOMAINE VINCENT DANCER
DOMAINE HENRI DARNAT
DOMAINE BERNARD DEFAIX
DOMAINE JEAN DEFAIX
DOMAINE CHRISTOPHE DENIZOT
JEAN-YVES DEVEVEY – DOMAINE JEAN-YVES DEVEVEY
Light and racy and ticks the boxes but it’s not thrilling. Except for introducing me to a premier cru of which I was previously ignorant. Lots of astringency.
Tight and taut. Needs to unwind a bit but all the elements are there. A little severe at the moment. Not a bad buy.
DOMAINE DE LA DOUAIX
