Chapoutier Chateauneuf du Pape Croix de Bois Proprietary Blend Wine 2010

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Croix de Bois which comes from the Bedarrides sector of Chateauneuf du Pape reveals flamboyant aromas of licorice Christmas fruitcake loamy soil black cherries black currants and raspberries. This spicy peppery earthy exotic full-bodied super-rich 2010 is slightly more structured than the superb 2009. It begs for several years of cellaring and should drink well for 15 or more. -Robert Parker Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

M. Chapoutier:
The name CHAPOUTIER is present in the Rhône Valley since 1808. In 1879, the distant ancestor Polydor CHAPOUTIER was the first to begin to buy vines, thus moving from the status of wine-grower of an estate to that of a viticulturist, a wine producer and a businessman. The pioneering spirit was already present in the family.

Vivid ruby. A heady seductive bouquet evokes black raspberry and cherry liqueur potpourri and allspice with a bright mineral overtone. Shows impressive clarity and energy offering penetrating dark berry and floral pastille flavors that gain weight with air. Spreads out on the finish which features soft tannins and a whiplash of sweet dark fruit. This wine was raised entirely in concrete. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Dark crimson. Very sweet and round. Super-juicy fruit with extra intensity and a bit more smoothness than the average Tradition bottling. Fresh finish. Just a little alcohol obvious on the finish. 17/20 Jancis Robinson.
