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

Opening up considerably since I tasted it from barrel, the 2010 Esprit de Beaucastel is a superb blend of 45% Mourvedre, 30% Grenache, 21% Syrah and 4% Counoise that was aged all in foudre.

Opening up considerably since I tasted it from barrel, the 2010 Esprit de Beaucastel is a superb blend of 45% Mourvedre, 30% Grenache, 21% Syrah and 4% Counoise that was aged all in foudre. It delivers loads of ripe blackberry, plum, licorice, roasted herbs and hints of flowers to go with a medium to full-bodied, rich and mouth-filling profile on the palate. Textured, layered and rich, with a firm underlying core of tannin, this superbly balanced beauty should be given 2-3 years of bottle age and then consumed over the following decade. Drink 2015-2025. - Jeb Dunnuck

Exotically perfumed bouquet of ripe red fruits Asian spices lavender and cola. Pliant sweet and lithe offering intense raspberry bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors along with hints of star anise and blood orange. Finishes silky sweet and long with resonating floral notes and excellent focus.

On its own, this Mourvèdre-based Rhône-style blend is fairly straightforward. It has candied aromas and tastes, suggesting raspberry-flavored licorice and cola. However, it is dry and crisp in acidity, balanced overall... On its own, this Mourvèdre-based Rhône-style blend is fairly straightforward. It has candied aromas and tastes, suggesting raspberry-flavored licorice and cola. However, it is dry and crisp in acidity, balanced overall. It will be a fine companion to a wide range of fare.

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.
