The 2010 Domaine de la Charbonnière Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Mourre des Perdrix comes from the sandy clay soils of the "Mourre des Perdrix" region that lies near the town of Courthézon. Harvested with miniscule yields (16 hl/ha) and a blend of 70% Grenache and the rest an even mix of Syrah and Mourvèdre the wine is the most silky and elegant of the special cuvees with first-rate aromatics of crushed flowers exotic spice and wet stone-like qualities that are supported by vibrant raspberry and blackberry-like fruits on the nose. Medium to full-bodied on the palate with a fleshy full mid-palate a silky polished texture and notable structure and tannin on the finish this serious Châteauneuf should be give 2-4 years in the cellar and then consumed over the following 15 years.

The opaque ruby/purple-colored 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Mourre des Perdrix exhibits classic notes of raspberries plums and cherries. Heady with a more streamlined style than the other 2010s it is elegant pure and precise veering toward a more Pinot Noir-like style than the other Chateauneuf du Pape cuvees.

(70% grenache and 15% each of mourvedre and syrah): Full ruby. Dark berry preserves and licorice on the pungent nose. The richest and most brooding of this set of '10s with very good depth to its cherry and blueberry... (70% grenache and 15% each of mourvedre and syrah): Full ruby. Dark berry preserves and licorice on the pungent nose. The richest and most brooding of this set of '10s with very good depth to its cherry and blueberry flavors. A smoky note comes up with air and lingers on the chewy penetrating finish. Pretty serious and structured; this looks like a good cellar candidate.
