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.

Lastly, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Mourre des Perdrix is the most fine, elegant and silky, with beautiful notes of dried flowers, black raspberry, dried earth and spice. Medium to full-bodied, pure and layered, it’s not a blockbuster, but it shines for its balance, length and texture. Coming from the sandy, clay soils located just behind the estate, this cuvee is always the most fine, elegant and lightly textured of the special cuvees, yet it ages gracefully on its balance. Drink it anytime over the coming 10-15 years. - Jeb Dunnuck

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.
