2010 Châteauneuf-du-Pape

2. Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape Premier (2010)

« Prev Next » 2 of 8
Average price: $22.00 from 36 stores
This is very aromatic with a little hint of lift coming from some VA. A bit of an old school nose here with violets, olives, and a bit of teriyaki all layered over dark strawberry fruit. Smooth and polished in the mouth, showing a level of refinement that is surprising. This delivers masses of seamless slightly dark and liquory fruit supported by fine-grained tannins that extend across the long, slightly sweet finish. Very youthful. 93pts

  • 541617CarlJBonura Domaine Durieu make a beautiful Chateauneuf du Pape that fills the mouth and is excellently priced at list of $40 but which can be found for under $30. I think it is an excellent buy.


  • 253137hugh27 I could not disagree more- the wines chosen with the exception of Beaucastel are always poorer performers to some of the lesser lights- just because they have the name does not mean they have the quality- For Vacqueyras there is non better than Domaine de Monardiere and Gigondas Les Goubert- but for Chateauneuf the top available stars are Clos deu Caillou, Grand Tinel, & Bosquet des Papes, sadly the best but almost impossible to find -Domaine de Marcooux- 100 points, Roger Sabon, 99 pts and Laurent Charvin, 99 pts. also give a look at Olivier Hillaire


  • 1098305Tom Wandeloski I was able to taste and review the 2009 vintage recently. It was very good. Fruit notes of plum and fig with a hint of cocoa and tobacco. It has a long finish on the palette with mid-acidity. This wine has not peaked and will mature nicely over time (2019-2024).
