    Winemaker's Notes:

    Lovely blood-red color with crimson edges. Its powerful nose is reminiscent of basalt, tobacco leaf with cooked fruit notes and juicy prunes. Powerful structured palate, rich and rounded with flavors of fresh strawberry compote, raspberries, cherries tinged with thyme, wild juniper and violet rockrose.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Although it is extremely limited in availability, readers should not forget the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Grenaches de Pierre. This remarkable wine boasts inky, raspberry and kirsch liqueur notes interwoven with spring flowers, loamy, sandy soil, balsam wood and forest floor, and a full-bodied, multidimensional mouthfeel. The color is a dense purple, there is good acidity underlying the wine's tremendous opulence and voluptuous texture, and the tannins are sweet. It is another fabulous example of old vine Grenache that should drink well for 15-20 years.

    The Wine Advocate

    Marries massive layers of lush, modern-styled boysenberry paste, plum pâte de fruit, anise and blackberry paste to old-school charcoal, smoldering tobacco and licorice root notes. The structure is well-endowed, but shows polish and integration. Graphite girders support the finish while the acidity flows seamlessly. Captures fruit, terroir and the vintage character beautifully. Best from 2014 through 2030.

    Wine Spectator

    Opaque ruby. Explosive blackberry, cherry compote, licorice and smoky herbs on the nose, lifted by a spicy note. Suave and rich on the palate, offering lush dark fruit flavors that turn toward redder with aeration. Finishes with excellent clarity and serious punch, the red fruit and herb notes echoing.
    Range: 93-95
