A monumental effort meriting a perfect score, the super-rich 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is a 4,000-bottle blend of 50% Grenache, 40% Mourvedre and 10% Syrah from 55- to 105-year-old vines and was aged for 18 months in small oak...It is akin to chewing meat in the mouth given its viscosity and thickness...utterly amazing wine...A massive Chateauneuf du Pape (even for a 2010)...should age effortlessly for 25-30 years. Bravo! Robert Parker

Crushed herbs, black fruit, liquorice. A little short on flavour and acidity stands out little. Some more time?

Super-charged and tannic, with underlying freshness and great fruit.

One of the top CDP I have had. Silky smooth, balanced.

Impressive! Massive dark fruit, very deep core, heat/warm vintage. I feel the alcohol, technically perfectly made. I struggled to pick the wine.. Rhone Valley at its best. This wine received a 100 point score from Robert Parker. 95+ points from me. To be honest, not my style of wine but wow it was good.

Wow... Depth, intensity, power and class. So balanced but with everything turned up to the max. Mocha, kirsch, blackberry, tar, liquorice and every other black fruit descriptor you can imagine. Tannin and acid flooding through the mid palate and finish. Length and length. What a fantastically made wine from an epic year. Thanks to the man that opened it. I end the way I opened.... Wow. 98+ points
