Clos des Brusquières Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

The average age of the vines is 40 years, with some vines dating back to the early 1900s. All the grapes are hand harvested during multiple passes through the vines. The wine is feremented in cement tanks, lasting anywhere from 3-4 weeks; the cap is punched down and the wine is pumped over. Ageing takes place in neutral wood. The wines are neither filtered nor fined.

(68% grenache, 15% mourvedre, 13% syrah and 4% cinsault): Bright purple. Powerful, deeply pitched aromas of cherry compote, licorice and spicy underbrush. Sweet, fleshy and focused, showing good heft to its ripe cherry, smoky plum and cassis flavors. Finishes dense, minerally and long, with very smooth tannins. This wine is showing more power than I usually expect from this estate. The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape displayed slightly higher potential last year. Nevertheless, it is an excellent effort exhibiting a deep plum/ruby color, an evolved style for this vintage and elegant, plum, peppery, black raspberry and cherry notes intermixed with herb and loamy soil characteristics. While medium-bodied and pleasurable, I expected more intensity and richness. Drink it over the next decade. - Robert Parker 88+ Points ** Only 5 in Stock **
