    Winemaker's Notes:

    #23 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2014

    The 2010 vintage was an exceptional one in the southern Rhone. All the different grapes varieties behaved well during the ageing and the quality progression was harmonious. In this kind of vintage, Chateauneuf shows an incredible focus on the terroir expression. In a blind tasting it can't be missed. The very reasonable level of alcohol make 2010 even more interesting because of the intensity of the great vintage can be found without the brutal Chateauneuf alcohol. The freshness was the fact of 2010. The Chateauneuf 2010 already tastes great, but it can be drunk old as well.

    Blend: 50% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah, 7% Cinsault, 3% Clairette

    Critical Acclaim:

    Densely packed, with a core of baker’s chocolate, espresso, bay leaf, licorice root, black currant preserves and steeped fig. A strong, almost rigid charcoal spine carries the finish, surrounded by ample flesh, lingering minerality and a smoldering feel. A backward, old-school version built for long cellaring.

    The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape (a blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah and 10% Cinsault) comes from two lieux-dits, La Crau and Valori. It exhibits a deep plum/purple color as well as sweet aromas of kirsch, cassis, licorice and lavender. Richly fruity and pure with low acidity and terrific purity...

    Deep ruby. Ripe cherry, spicecake, garrigue and an exotic hint of flowers on the intensely perfumed nose. Sappy and fresh as well as dense, offering intense raspberry and cherry flavors and a touch of candied licorice. Finishes with fine-grained tannins, building sweetness and excellent spicy persistence.
