Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2010

$179

The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape flirts with perfection. A classic blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre and the rest Syrah, Vaccarese and Counoise...the wine boasts a dense purple color along with lots of gorgeously pure black raspberry, black currant and kirsch liqueur notes intermixed with notions of spring flowers, tapenade, licorice and spice box. This dense, full-bodied, powerful Chateauneuf is also remarkably fresh and well-delineated...Don't miss it! Robert Parker

This is rather delicious. Beautiful red fruit in the nose with dark plum and a hint of violet. Very pure and intense on the palate. Kirsch, some herbal notes intense berry fruits and real purity. Silky, and handles the alcohol well. One of the best of their recent vintages

Great CdP! Solid core of fruit with firm tannins. Drank better on day 2. Built for the long haul.

Awesome wine. Great balance, good tannins. Oh and the fruit is awesome after being open for 1.5 hours..

Gave this 2+ hours of decant. With that air, certainly elegant, earthy, and mineral driven. Next to the modern Spanish Grenache, this read much more of place.

Blind Rhône’s from Saturday. I feel like this was flawed but not in an obvious way a la TCA...more like it was madeirized or a victim of lightstrike. Sour, stinky socks and a dull vibe. Bummer. NR.

Year in and year out one of my favorite wines, specially the 2010. It is aging so well, everything is integrated and it was a pop and pour. Lights out.

It is was a sound wine and it is clean and well made but it has a cherry cough syrup character most of the time and it is not for me
