2010 Chateauneufs

James Molesworth raved about the 2010 Chateauneuf du Papes in the August 8, 2012 Insider: "So far, I’ve blind-tasted over 400 Southern Rhônes from the 2010 vintage, with more to go. Right now, 2010 looks to be the most compelling vintage in the Southern Rhône I have tasted since I began covering the region. The wines combine the ripe, vivid fruit of warm years like ’07 and ’09 with the tannic spine of a classic vin de garde year such as ’05, all laced with mouthwatering acidity from a racy vintage like ’01. It’s a rare combination that has resulted in many producers hitting high-water marks with their wines,... The vintage is exciting throughout the south, not just in the glamour appellation of Châteauneuf-du-Pape ..." However, yields were down 20 to 40 percent for many producers, so you may need to move fast to get the wines you want.

James Molesworth writes in Wine Spectator: "Ripe and rich, but very, very silky, with a hint of shiso leaf giving way to lightly mulled raspberry and boysenberry fruit flavors, backed by toasted anise, lavender and warm stone notes on the very stylish finish. A beauty. Best from 2015 through 2030."

Josh Raynolds writes in International Wine Cellar: "Deep, bright red. Lively and expressive on the nose, offering scents of wild strawber... read more

James Molesworth writes in Wine Spectator: "Kirsch, bitter cherry, damson plum and red licorice notes take on a racy feel, with shiso leaf and warm paving stone notes on the finish. Lovely, refreshing acidity runs from start to finish, leaving a mouthwatering feel and bringing you back. Far more elegant than the previous house style at this domaine. Best from 2014 through 2027."

JEAN ROYER 2010 LES SABLES DE LA CRAU CHATEAUNEUF DU PAPE
score: WS 94
IWC 94

add to cart $65.99   add a case $791.88

James Molesworth writes in Wine Spectator: "A lovely perfumy style, with shiso leaf and alder notes out front, followed by very silky raspberry and cherry fruit flavors. The graceful finish has finely beaded acidity that stretches out nicely. Long and lush, but restrained at the same time, with sneaky latent depth. This feels special. The debut bottling for this cuvée. Drink now through 2030."
