Winemaker's Notes

This has a pretty purple color with bright reflections and aromas of red berries. The palate is silky and velvety. Ideal for game and cooked meat in a red sauce.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Tradition was even better than when I tasted it last year prior to bottling. A wine of great intensity, it may be the finest Tradition cuvee yet made at Bosquet des Papes. Its opaque purple color is accompanied by sumptuous notes of balsam wood, roasted Provencal herbs/garrigue, sweet black raspberry and blackberry fruit and hints of truffles and lavender. This dense, full-bodied, amazing Chateauneuf is one of the top values of the vintage. Enjoy it over the next 15-20 years."
94 Points

"A broad, gutsy style, with bittersweet cocoa and Turkish coffee notes leading the way for an immense yet still tightly wound core of blackberry, fig paste and steeped black currant fruit. The tar-coated finish has heft, but also serious cut. Best from 2014 through 2028."
93 Points

"Saturated ruby. Blackberry, cherry and lavender on the intensely perfumed, spicy nose and in the mouth. Deep and expansive, with impressive back-end punch and slow-building smokiness. The spice and floral notes carry through a long, sweet, gently tannic finish. Decant this one if you can't resist opening a bottle now. "

(shah-too-NUHF due Pahp) Southern Rhone's landmark region, Chateauneuf du Pape, was the first region to gain AC status in France. That was the 1920s - it's history goes much further back than that. As the name suggests, the wine region was named after the new papal home, referring to the period of time in the 1300's when the pope resided in Avignon instead of Rome. Notable Facts...
