(2010 Vintage) The brilliant 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape is one of the finest basic cuvees of the vintage. Moreover, it usually sells for a realistic price. Its inky/purple color is accompanied by a beautiful perfume of camphor, sweet blackberry and black raspberry fruit, lavender, forest floor and acacia flowers. Full-bodied and rich with good acidity, ripe tannin and a long finish.

    A sleeper of the vintage, the deep ruby/purple-hued 2007 Chacirc;teauneuf de Pape, a blend of 70% Grenache and the rest equal parts Syrah and Counoise, exhibits gorgeously plump, sexy aromas of red and black fruits, licorice, smoke, Provenccedil;al herbs, and flowers. Full-bodied, opulent, and voluptuous, it is an endearing, exuberant, flashy Chacirc;teauneuf that tastes like the bottles essence of Provence. Drink it now and over the next 10ndash;12 years.
