“The 2010 Au Sommet seems to bring together the best of qualities of 2008 and 2009. It has the fruit and depth of the former and the silkiness of the latter. Juicy dark cherries, plums, smoke, incense and tobacco are some of the aromas and flavors that take shape as this powerful, intense wine shows off its considerable pedigree. Hints of black olives, grilled herbs and licorice add complexity on the finish. This is a gorgeous wine in every way. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2030.”

“Features a tight mix of currant, blackberry, cedar and loamy earth notes. This is dense, spicy and firmly tannic, with flavors that gain depth and expand on the finish. Promises to improve with age. Drink now through 2026.”

“The 2010 Au Sommet is bright, saturated red-ruby. Pure, aromatic aromas of currant, espresso and minerals complemented by mint and licorice nuances. Chewy, deep and mouth-coating, with noteworthy energy to its subtly expanding flavors of brambly mountain berries and spices. Finishes broad and long with ripe tannins nicely supported by the wine’s concentration of fruit. Drinkable now.”
—Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar, May 2013
