    Winemaker's Notes:

    This wine is a beautiful red with hints of pomegranate. On the nose are subtle aromas of ripe fruit, liqueur and fresh figs, with just a bit of plum. The palate is elegant with great finesse and a silky touch of tannin which finds flavors of a compote of red berries, combined with blackberry and blueberry.

    Blend: 70% Mourvedre with Grenache and Counoise

    Critical Acclaim:

    Offers gorgeous feel and purity, with a caressing, velvety edge to the bright, vivid linzer torte, blackberry pâte de fruit and plum sauce flavors. The long, sleek finish lets incense and toasted spice notes flitter through, with good latent grip. Best from 2013 through 2023.

    Wine Spectator

    The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Safres (100% Grenache aged in foudre) comes from a lieu-dit called Les Bedines. Exhibiting a dense ruby/purple color, super ripe fruit and a deep, full-bodied, layered style, it may be the finest Les Safres offering I have yet tasted. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.

    The Wine Advocate

    Bright ruby. Intensely perfumed aromas of raspberry liqueur, potpourri and allspice are lifted by a white pepper topnote. Bright and precise on the palate, offering juicy red fruit flavors and an exotic floral pastille nuance. Really stains the palate on the long, sweet, seamless finish. This seductive wine will be drinkable on the young side. 91-93 points
