Cellier des Princes Côtes du Rhône White le Sceau du Prince 2010

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

A great value in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the Cellier des Princes is medium bodied with bright red fruit and black spices. A classic vintage, the 2010 is less fruity and more reserved and smoky. Great with lamb or roast meats.

The vineyards of the Cellier des Princes, which is the only co-operative on the Châteauneuf du Pape area, stretches over 5 villages with a very rich and diverse production: Courthézon, Bedarrides, Jonquières, Châteauneuf du Pape and Orange. Our wines are vinified with a great number of grape varieties – up to thirteen for the Châteauneuf du Pape. The main grapes used are the Grenache, the Syrah or the Mourvèdre together with a whole set of ancient varieties. Each plot of our vineyard is selected carefully and individually so as to elaborate our different wines. This is the key to the complexity, the diversity and the constant quality of our products. Our wines, rooted in their soil, always reflect their origins. And it is these very soils which give the different characteristics of our wines; the deep pebbles for strength, the dry and hot sandy soils for power and spices, the chalky sandstones for structure, the clayey – siliceous hillocks for richness and roundness.

Deep red. Fragrant bouquet of red berries and incense, with a smoky quality gaining strength with air. Sappy and expansive, with good depth and energy to its sweet raspberry and cherry flavors. The smoky note comes back on the finish, which betrays a touch of heat.

The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cellier des Princes possesses a dark ruby/purple color, a modern style, medium body and good elegance as well as purity, but not much character or personality. Drink it over the next 6–8 years.
