Assertive exotically perfumed scents of black raspberry wild herbs and incense with a note of lavender in the background. Sweet ripe silky and expansive with a nervy spine of acidity providing focus to the sweet red and dark berry preserve and floral flavors. The seamless finish shows strong spice and floral character. --- Josh Raynolds

Darker in color than both the '11 and '12, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape offers full-bodied richness and depth to go with loads of darker fruits, crushed rock-like minerality, roasted herbs and licorice. Beautifully concentrated, textured, with ripe tannin, it should be at its best from 2016-2025. - Jeb Dunnuck

Tasted prior to bottling but as a final blend the 2010 Les Cailloux (Lucien et André Brunel) Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a blend of 70% Grenache 20% Mourvèdre and 10% Syrah with only the Syrah seeing smaller barrels and the Grenache and Mourvèdre co-fermented. Showing the purity and vibrancy of the vintage it possesses loads of pure black and blue fruits licorice meat and floral undertones that are all supported by excellent edgy and fresh seeming minerality. Voluptuous and fleshy on the palate with beautiful fruit this has solid underlying structure and depth as well as solid tannin on the finish. While it should be drinkable on release it should benefit from a handful of years in the cellar. -Jeb Dunnuck
