Firm structured and showing the coolness of the vintage beautifully the 2010 Tablas Creek Esprit de Beaucastel (45% Mourvèdre 30% Grenache 21% Syrah and 4% Counoise) is a fresh focused and balanced red that has loads of crushed berry like fruit licorice sappy underbrush and floral nuances as well as superb underlying minerality all emerging from the glass. Quite tight and firm on the palate with excellent purity juicy acidity and a youthful energetic feel this will most likely require 3-5 years of bottle age once released and have 15+ years of total longevity. - Jeb Dunnuck

An exciting array of dark red fruit black cherries incense and tar come together beautifully. At first large-scaled and sweeping in personality the wine finds more refined registers on the finish where floral notes add a measure of lift and finesse. Today the 2010 is a baby though. The blend is 45% Mourvedre 30% Grenache 21% Syrah and 4% Counoise. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. - Antonio Galloni

Deep and vibrant ruby with a bright magenta rim. Pleasing aromas of red fruits fresh cut flowers and savory herbs. Bright and vibrant with notes of cherry strawberry raspberry violet and a touch of vanilla. Refreshing... Deep and vibrant ruby with a bright magenta rim. Pleasing aromas of red fruits fresh cut flowers and savory herbs. Bright and vibrant with notes of cherry strawberry raspberry violet and a touch of vanilla. Refreshing acidity and a medium to long finish make this drinkable now but it will be even better in 2-5 years.
