 The 2010 vintage illustrates,​ perhaps better than most, the difficulty in making sweeping judgments about a vintage. ​ The flight of 2010 Chablis (on night one) and the flight of Criots/​Bienvenues Batard Montrachets (on night two) probably ranked as the best we’ve ever had from those appellations. ​ The wines from Montrachet (night three) were at a similar very high overall level of quality -- along with the 2007 vintage, this was one of the top two "​Mostly Montrachet"​ dinners of all time.  The wines from Chevalier Montrachet (night two), which include a phenomenal ringer from Colin-Morey Chassagne En Remilly that was the overall No. 1 rated wine on night two, were a little bit more variable, but mostly performed at a similarly high level. But the wines from Meursault and Corton Charlemagne (night one), and Batard Montrachet (night two), when viewed as a group were not nearly so impressive. ​ Even among the latter wines there were exceptions, like the Coche-Dury Corton Charlemagne (night three) and the Dancer and Roulot Meursault Perrieres.\\ \\ The 2010 vintage illustrates,​ perhaps better than most, the difficulty in making sweeping judgments about a vintage. ​ The flight of 2010 Chablis (on night one) and the flight of Criots/​Bienvenues Batard Montrachets (on night two) probably ranked as the best we’ve ever had from those appellations. ​ The wines from Montrachet (night three) were at a similar very high overall level of quality -- along with the 2007 vintage, this was one of the top two "​Mostly Montrachet"​ dinners of all time.  The wines from Chevalier Montrachet (night two), which include a phenomenal ringer from Colin-Morey Chassagne En Remilly that was the overall No. 1 rated wine on night two, were a little bit more variable, but mostly performed at a similarly high level.

 One of the problems that affects a number of 2010s is botrytis. ​ There was virtually nothing written about it when the reviews came out, but most of the producers I’ve spoken with over the past few years acknowledge it was an issue – and for some, it was a significant issue.\\ \\ One of the problems that affects a number of 2010s is botrytis. ​ There was virtually nothing written about it when the reviews came out, but most of the producers I’ve spoken with over the past few years acknowledge it was an issue – and for some, it was a significant issue.\\ \\

 Over the three nights, we experienced 9 out of 80 bottles which were either advanced or oxidized (11.25%), which was an all-time low.   Of the 80 bottles, 9 were closed with DIAM.  There were no advanced, oxidized or corked wines among the nine DIAM-closed bottles. ​ Excluding the DIAM bottles, we had 9 bottles out of 71 (12.68%) that were either advanced or oxidized. ​ That's essentially tied with the 2004 vintage where we had 12.70% either advanced or oxidized. Over the three nights, we experienced 9 out of 80 bottles which were either advanced or oxidized (11.25%), which was an all-time low.   Of the 80 bottles, 9 were closed with DIAM.  There were no advanced, oxidized or corked wines among the nine DIAM-closed bottles. ​ Excluding the DIAM bottles, we had 9 bottles out of 71 (12.68%) that were either advanced or oxidized. ​ That's essentially tied with the 2004 vintage where we had 12.70% either advanced or oxidized.
