The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape is made from 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah and Mourvedre all from the famed lieu-dit Les Pialons which is located only a few miles from Vieux Telegraphe's La Crau although it is normally harvested at least 15 days later than La Crau (an extraordinary illustration of the difference in micro-climates in a compact area such as Chateauneuf du Pape). The deep rich dark ruby/purple-tinged 2010 does not compare to the magnificent 2007 but it is a top-tier wine that was aged 18 months in concrete tanks. Abundant raspberry kirsch lavender and spice box characteristics are present in this beauty. Enjoy it over the next 15 or more years. -Robert Parker

Silky and briary with lots of pepper savory and tobacco notes coursing along while a hint of shiso leaf separates them from the blackberry and black currant confiture flavors. Lovely finely beaded acidity offsets the tarry grip. Great range and tension. Best from 2014 through 2028. 1200 cases imported. -JM

Sexy aromas of spicy red berries and potpourri with a hint of smokiness in the background. Juicy and very fresh offering intense raspberry and cherry flavors given depth by a suggestion of candied licorice. Finishes sappy and long with resonating florality and an echo of red fruit.
