A real blockbuster as well as a massive example of old vine Grenache is the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Petits Pieds d'Armand. Only 260 cases were produced in 2010 as the Grenache yields were unusually small in this vintage. However that has added an extra level of concentration. This wine ratchets up the power concentration glycerin opulence and density revealing a deep purple color in addition to extraordinarily pure black raspberry black cherry and cassis flavors intermixed with licorice spring flowers and incense. The alcohol must be in excess of 16%. This unctuously textured gorgeously concentrated wine is a monument to old vine Grenache grown in the southern Rhone. It should drink well for 15-20 years.

A very fruit-driven style with a lovely melange of blueberry fig blackberry and boysenberry notes all melded together and framed by light toasty vanilla anise and alderwood notes. There'sa lovely racy feel through the finish though this keeps the fruit focused rather than overly exuberant. Shows nice vivacity. Best from 2014 through 2028. -J.M.
