Winemaker's Notes

The color is a deep garnet red. The nose of the "Haute Pierre" has strong spicy aromas that reveal a rich, powerful body that is delicate, yet has a tightly-knit tanninc framework. On the palate, the wine is rich and onctuous, revealing intense licorice-like flavors. It can easily be kept 10 years or more.

Ideal with the traditional French and "Provencale" type-stews and meat.

Blend: 90% Grenache, 10% Syrah

Critical Acclaim

"Offers the focused ripeness of the vintage, with a lightly steeped edge to the plum, red currant and raspberry fruit, while extra pastis, singed apple wood and red licorice notes fill in on the finish. Lovely perfumy spice notes drape over all of it, with cut and drive on the finish. Best from 2015 through 2025."
93 Points

"The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Haute Pierre, a blend of 65% tank-aged Grenache and 35% barrel aged-Syrah, is drinking beautifully at present. Offering copious aromas of black cherry jam, cassis, licorice, forest floor, spring flowers and bouquet garni, this full-bodied, dark purple-colored wine will benefit from several more years of cellaring. It will last for 15+ years."
90 Points

"Vivid ruby. Pungent, energetic aromas of raspberry and cherry pit are accented by exotic star anise and flowers. On the palate, flavors of ripe red and dark berries and candied flowers are complemented by a touch of smokiness on the back half. Finishes smooth and long, the cherry and smoke notes echoing."

Learn About Chateauneuf-du-Pape

(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...
