    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2010 vintage delivers a rich and balanced wine. The palate is fresh, and there are lovely aromas of black fruit, raspberry and spice.

    Blend: 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 5% Cinsault, and 5% Mourvedre

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Tradition was cropped at 23 hectoliters per hectare (overall it was a small crop in 2010), and is a blend of mostly Grenache and 20% Syrah, with 80% aged in old wood foudres and 20% in small barrels. The alcohol level came in at 15.5%. Classic black raspberry, black cherry, garrigue, and lavender notes hit the palate with considerable authority. The Syrah component provides a slightly deeper purple hue to the color than is apparent in some other vintages. The extra level of concentration due to the tiny yields has resulted in a full-bodied, rich wine with super purity.

    The Wine Advocate

    Ruby-red. Lively red berry and floral aromas show very good upfront appeal. Juicy raspberry and cherry flavors pick up a bitter chocolate quality with air, along with a note of candied flowers. Finishes gently sweet and spicy, with a vivid raspberry note.
