Winemaker's Notes

A blend of 65% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre and 5% Cinsault, this is a warm, mouth-filling and satisfying wine with a Southern feel, with hints of violets, spice and pine. Grenache provides the richness, balanced by the earthy tannins of Mourvedre, while Syrah provides structure and elegance.

Perfect with filet mignon, game, rich stews, but also sausages, and rich, creamy cheese.

Critical Acclaim

"A blend of two-thirds Grenache and the rest mostly Syrah and Mourvedre with a touch of Cinsault from 60-old-vines, all aged in old wood foudres, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape is deep and full-bodied. One of the great buys of the vintage, it exhibits an opaque ruby/purple color as well as abundant notes of black raspberries, incense, Asian plum sauce, garrigue and licorice. With stunning concentration and purity, a full-bodied texture and a long finish, it still has some tannins to shed, so give it 2-3 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 15-20."
94 Points

"Bright ruby. High-pitched aromas of redcurrant, cherry and lavender, with a spicy nuance that gains strength with air. Juicy and seamless, offering energetic red fruit flavors along with a refreshingly bitter taste of orange pith. Finishes spicy and long, with good clarity and lingering florality."
