Solid quality and a great value from one of the greatest vintages in Chateauneuf du Pape. A blend of Grenache (65%), Syrah (20%), Mourvedre (10%), and Cinsault (5%) from vines averaging 45 years-old. About two-thirds were aged in concrete and the remaining one-third in new barrels for up to 18 months. Classic Chateauneuf du Pape. Deep, intense dark fruits and spice flavors. Smooth textured and fresh on the palate. Excellent value for this top quality Chateauneuf.

"The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape is a traditional blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Syrah and the rest Mourvedre and Cinsault from 50-year-old vines aged in a combination of concrete tanks, old wood foudres and small old barrels. It displays notes of charcuterie, roasted meats, garrigue, kirsch and black currants along with a full-bodied, seriously endowed, super-concentrated mouthfeel that builds like a skyscraper in the mouth. This cuvee possesses remarkable density and richness as well as the potential to last 20 years." 94/100 Robert M. Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate

"Fleshy, with plum compote and blackberry pate de fruit flavors backed by fruitcake and red licorice notes. Shows good intensity, offering a sleek feel despite the obvious weight. Should open nicely with modest cellaring. Best from 2014 through 2025. 10,000 cases made." 91/100 Wine Spectator
