Mounir and Rotem Saouma established their two-person micro-négoce in 1999 that focuses exclusively on the very best 1ers and grands crus. They describe the 2010 vintage as "unique in our experience. The wines are grand classics and you can feel the luminosity in them. The low crop loads from the poor flowering helped in achieving a high degree of phenolic ripeness with good acidities and good but not high alcohols. Just as importantly, the wines are, along with the 2001s, perhaps the most transparent that we have ever made. They should age well because of the ripe and well-integrated tannins yet the impeccable balance of fruit, concentration of sap and these ripe structural elements should also allow them to be enjoyed in their youth too if desired."

Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Charmes-Chambertin is sublime. It reveals lovely fleshiness and depth. Sweet red berries, flowers and spices flesh out in the glass. The Charmes impresses for its impeccable textural finesse, fabulous balance and overall sense of harmony. The Le Moine Charmes is equal parts true Charmes and Mayozeres. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030.

BurghoundThere is a floral nose to the red berry and cassis suffused nose that also evidences hints of earth, humus and forest floor. There is an unusual degree of refinement to the round yet precise middle weight flavors that possess a wonderfully complex, balanced and focused backend. This is really quite pretty but unlike many wines that are pretty but have limited depth, this is by contrast quite deep. 92-94
