A 100% Grenache cuvee from the Gardiole lieu-dit is the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape a la Gloire de Mon Grandpere. With 43 separate parcels spread throughout the appellation the Boiron family can pick and choose the best but it must be a strategic nightmare to manage all these different parcels. This 2010 (500 cases produced) includes 50% stems and is aged entirely in demi-muids. Close to perfection it is the finest example of this cuvee I have tasted since its debut in 1998. Drinking it is like drinking pure kirsch liqueur intermixed with notes of crushed spring flowers. Its superb minerality density purity and texture build incrementally in the mouth revealing a blockbuster red with superb elegance precision and purity. The alcohol must surpass 15%. Drink this spectacular Chateauneuf du Pape over the next 12-15 years.

Absolutely knockout stuff the 2010 Bosquet des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape A la Gloire de mon Grand-Père is a blend of 98% Grenache and 2% Cinsault that was aged in a combination of concrete tank foudre and demi-muid... Absolutely knockout stuff the 2010 Bosquet des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape A la Gloire de mon Grand-Père is a blend of 98% Grenache and 2% Cinsault that was aged in a combination of concrete tank foudre and demi-muid. Offering up a spectacularly clear delineated bouquet of black cherries violets seaweed wrapper new leather and edgy minerality this beauty hits the palate with a full-bodied rich and beautifully focused texture. Classy elegant and quite structured it needs 3-4 years in the cellar and will shine for 12-15 years.

Rich and velvety with concentrated but lithe layers of fig sauce blackberry confiture and fresh plum studded with singed apple wood dark tobacco and a flicker of warm stone. The long finish lets everything echo... Rich and velvety with concentrated but lithe layers of fig sauce blackberry confiture and fresh plum studded with singed apple wood dark tobacco and a flicker of warm stone. The long finish lets everything echo beautifully. Best from 2014 through 2030. -JM

An exotically perfumed nose evokes dark berries, spicecake and potpourri, with a strong suggestion of garrigue building with air. Offers intense blackberry and bitter cherry flavors that gain sweetness and energy with aeration. Rich but lively, finishing with outstanding clarity and silky, harmonious tannins. -- Josh Raynolds
