Winemaker's Notes

The "Cuvee Felix" is a more tannic and reserved wine with additional nuance that appears as the wine ages. It is a structured and more powerful than the "traditional" wine. It has notes of black fruits, licorice and cocoa.

Critical Acclaim

"Absolutely magnificent is the opaque ruby/purple 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Felix. Notes of root beer/beet root interwoven with roasted Provencal herbs, black currants and even blacker fruits such as blackberries are prominent in this full-bodied, concentrated wine, which has fabulous fruit, sumptuous, a deep, multi-layered texture and a sensational finish of close to 40+ seconds. Acidity is present and there is precision and uplift to the big, bold flavors the 2010 Cuvee de Felix possesses."
95 Points

"Deep ruby. An exotically perfumed bouquet evokes dark fruit preserves, vanilla, smoked meat and incense. Distinctly wild, with intense blackberry and bitter cherry flavors and suggestions of succulent herbs and floral oils. Less feral than it was showing last year but this is still on the sauvage side. Finishes sweet and long with a lingering note of spicecake. If this wine's fruit comes more to the fore and the gaminess subsides my score will seem low.

Range: 91+"
