The 2010 vintage for red Burgundy was a great one, and it seems that all of the pundits agree. It’s classic in nature, though in general terms, the wines’ structures are firmer than their 2009 counterparts suggesting they’ll be longer lived. Aubert de Villaine of Domaine Romanée-Conti conveyed that the 2010 reds are more terroir driven than the ripe 2009’s. In Beaune, the Les Toussaints vineyard is just west of the village, sandwiched between Cent Vignes, Bressandes, and Les Grèves along the mineral-rich line of Premier Cru vineyards at the base of the slope. Formerly known as Domaine René Monnier (named for his maternal grandfather), Xavier Monnot can trace his lineage back for six generations of winegrowers. His 2010 Les Toussaints shows crunchy dark fruit, smoke, and spice on the nose. The palate is medium bodied and well balanced with the dark fruit at its core. The finish is bright and all in balance. It’s just hitting its drinking plateau now and should provide pleasure through 2027.
