The most backward and meaty of this trio is the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape La Guigasse. Another “locked and loaded,” potentially legendary Chateauneuf du Pape from this lieu-dit, it possesses the highest level of tannins and more acidity than its siblings. Aromas of beef blood, smoked meats, charcuterie, raspberries and black cherries soar from this full-bodied, superb effort. While nearly too exotic and kinky, its length, richness, full-bodied mouthfeel and multidimensional personality result in a sensational Chateauneuf du Pape that I adored. Forget it for 3–5 years and drink it over the following two decades.

The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape La Guigasse is a ldquo;rock and Rhonerdquo; legend in the making. A ldquo;locked and loadedrdquo; or ldquo;pedal to the metalrdquo; style of wine, it boasts a deep, dark ruby/purple-tinged color and fabulous potential, with abundant black currant, black raspberry, pepper, lavender, kirsch and garrigue notes. This full-bodied, loaded 2010 possesses a multidimensional mouthfeel as well as stunning purity and an incredible finish. Given its tannins and fresh acids, it will benefit from 4ndash;5 years of cellaring and keep for two decades.

Vivid ruby. Aromas of cherry and boysenberry are complemented by notes of lavender and violet and lifted by a spicy topnote. At once rich and energetic, with very good depth to its sappy black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors. An intense spicy quality builds with air and carries through a very long, seductively sweet finish.
