Released only in in the greatest vintages, very few have been made so far. Super rare special cuvee from a parcel planted with the thirteen Chateauneuf varietals in the La Crau vineyard. Harvest is deliberately delayed to the point of overripeness and the must is allowed to ferment on its own, pretty much for as long as it takes, which in this case was over two years. It is bottled unfined and unfiltered.

"
Comprised of roughly 85% Grenache and the rest Syrah and other permitted varieties, aged all in foudre, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee da Capo is sheer perfection in a glass. Wine doesn't get any better. Incredibly rich and concentrated, yet ethereal and even graceful, it boasts off-the-hook aromas of blackberry, licorice, spice-box, smoked meats and underbrush that continue to change and develop in the glass. Massive and decadent on the palate, yet again, with no weight and a seamless texture, this brilliant effort needs a handful of years in the cellar and will live to see its 30th birthday in fine form. Drink 2016-2040." 100/100 Robert M. Parker. Jr., The Wine Advocate
