    Winemaker's Notes:

    A lavishly ripe, extracted Châteauneuf-du-Pape that is complex and yet balanced with acidity - often in contradiction to an appellation better known for sheer exuberance and power.

    Blend: 90% Grenache, 4% Mourvedre, 4% Syrah, 2% Other

    Critical Acclaim:

    A candidate for perfection, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes, which achieved 16% natural alcohol, possesses an inky/purple color. It is slightly tighter and more restrained than the 2010 Chaupin, but it has enormous volume as well as incredible glycerin, richness and fat. A huge bouquet of pure blackberry and black currant fruit intermixed with charcoal, incense, truffles and spring flowers is followed by a prodigious, full-bodied wine that is capable of 20+ years of evolution. I hope Chateauneuf du Pape enthusiasts can find some of this amazing wine!

    Inky purple. Deeply pitched aromas of dark berries, cola and licorice pastille, with a wild suggestion of blood orange adding lift and vibrancy. Fleshy and velvety in texture, offering sappy blackberry and cassis flavors that pick up spiciness with air. Not showing much in the way of tannins right now but Sabon assures me that they're in there. Finishes bright and very long, with a subtle lingering note of candied rose.
    Range: 94-96

    Dark and rich, with lush, fleshy layers of warm fig paste, blueberry coulis, bittersweet ganache and licorice root. A dark undertow of Turkish coffee rumbles through the finish. Shows plenty of muscular grip, and will need considerable cellaring to settle in fully.
