Vinous: 94+ Points

Good deep red. Knockout nose conveys powerful minerality and almost liqueur-like raspberry and cherry scents lifted by a piquant note of orange zest. At once delicate and powerful with penetrating crushed-stone minerality that stimulates the palate and leaves the taste buds vibrating on the extremely long vibrant back end. Almost La Tache-like in its inner-mouth tension and echoing perfume. Outstanding Burgundy built for a long life in bottle.

Wine Advocate: 91-93 Points

The 2010 Vosne-Romanee Les Petits Monts is a beautifully textured wine. Sweet red fruit flowers mint licorice and spices are some of the notes that emerge from the glass. This too shows hints of reduction that blow off with time. Saline layers of minerality give the wine much of its energy and focus. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030.

Burghound: 92 Points

A ripe highly perfumed and mineral-inflected nose of red and blue pinot fruit also displays subtle floral notes that include violet and lavender. The plummy and stony flavors exude a fine extract as well as lovely delineation on the superbly elegant and refined finish that is balanced long and mouth coating. This is very much a classic Petits Monts and I particularly like the sleek muscularity.
