The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape is one of the finest traditional cuvees I have tasted as well as a sleeper of the vintage. Made from 90% Grenache and 10% Mourvedre from 55-year-old vines it exhibits a dense ruby/purple color as well as a stunning perfume of creme de cassis kirsch incense licorice and a vague notion of beef blood and roasted Provencal herbs. All of the fruit comes from vines planted in the northern end of the appellation. This exquisite full-throttle Chateauneuf du Pape should drink well for 15 or more years. It is a major star of the vintage and probably is reasonably priced as well. A microscopic estate owned by Coralie Goumarre Domaine Galevan was established remarkably in 1780 but the first estate-bottled wine did not emerge until 1968. I was blown away by these four red wine cuvees and both of the 2010s have jumped dramatically in score since I tasted them from barrel last year.

Wow seriously impressive and a gorgeous Châteauneuf-du-Pape the 2010 Domaine Galévan Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvèdre that comes from 50+ year-old vines. Hedonistically styled with decadent aromas of creamy raspberry sweet spice cake licorice and sappy underbrush and floral characteristics this hits the palate with a full-bodied rich texture notable concentration and brilliant length on the finish. This is upfront and fruit driven yet has top-notch complexity fantastic purity and good backend structure. While a beauty now it should continue to shine for 10-12 years if not longer. - Jeb Dunnuck
