Made from an identical blend, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape is a hedonistic Chateauneuf du Pape fruit bomb. Super-rich with layers of glycerin and fruit, this full-bodied classic smells like a Provencal open-air fruit and vegetable market. Loaded with slightly blacker fruits than its 2011 counterpart, there are also hints of charcuterie, spice box, cedar and Christmas fruitcake in this full-throttle, rich, concentrated wine.
Bright ruby. Youthful, oak-spiced aromas of raspberry and cherry, with a sexy floral quality gaining strength with air. Juicy and sweet on the palate, offering a supple texture and broad red fruit preserve flavors. The tangy finish offers very good bite and spicy persistence. I suspect that this wine will drink well soon after release. 90-92 points
