The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape is one of the finest traditional cuvees I have tasted as well as a sleeper of the vintage. Made from 90% Grenache and 10% Mourvedre from 55-year-old vines it exhibits a dense ruby/purple color... The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape is one of the finest traditional cuvees I have tasted as well as a sleeper of the vintage. Made from 90% Grenache and 10% Mourvedre from 55-year-old vines it exhibits a dense ruby/purple color as well as a stunning perfume of creme de cassis kirsch incense licorice and a vague notion of beef blood and roasted Provencal herbs. All of the fruit comes from vines planted in the northern end of the appellation. This exquisite full-throttle Chateauneuf du Pape should drink well for 15 or more years. It is a major star of the vintage and probably is reasonably priced as well. A microscopic estate owned by Coralie Goumarre Domaine Galevan was established remarkably in 1780 but the first estate-bottled wine did not emerge until 1968. I was blown away by these four red wine cuvees and both of the 2010s have jumped dramatically in score since I tasted them from barrel last year.
