Charvin Chateauneuf du Pape 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Producer: "Chapelle St. Theodoric is a project between winemaker Baptiste Grangeon and Peter Weygandt, or as Robert Parker called it - the "brainchild" of Peter Weygandt. There are two parcels, one in the lieu-dit La Guigasse, which is a pure sand soil and where the vines (all Grenache) range in age of from 50 to 100 years, and the other parcel at the top of Pignan, literally adjoining the vines of Chateau Rayas, also in pure sand, and also pure, old vines Grenache." "The vinification is traditional, that is to say, whole-cluster, such as employed exclusively by Jacques Reynaud at Chateau Rayas, Laurent Charvin, Henri Bonneau. The two parcels are vinified and aged and bottled separately, but with the exact same treatment, the experiment being to find what terroir differences one might find in pure sand, between vines less than 200 meters apart, both on sand, pure Grenache, and traditional vinification. The Les Sablons cuvée is the final press wine of the two parcels blended, aged in older barrique, with some younger vines also in the assemblage." - Importer

Youthful purple. Deeply pitched aromas of raspberry, boysenberry, Indian spices and incense, plus a strong note of candied lavender. Lush, creamy red and blue fruit flavors are strikingly fresh, with a zesty mineral spine adding vivacity. Deep but surprisingly lithe, finishing with strong punch, clarity and spicy persistence.

A juicy and brambly style, with thick plum skin, raspberry and blackberry fruit at the core, lined with toasted spice, roasted apple wood and dark licorice snap notes. The dark fruit is offset nicely by a perfumy black tea note, and the finish is lined with a fine minerality, with nice grip for balance overall. There's lots of range to this, and it should age beautifully. Best from 2015 through 2030.

The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape should rank alongside the greatest wine Charvin has made to date, the 2007. The dense purple-colored 2010 exhibits a beautiful, precise nose of licorice, black cherries, garrigue, dark raspberries and black currants. Full-bodied with fresh acids as well as a floral note, this potentially sensational Chateauneuf du Pape should drink well for 15 or more years.

More backward and concentrated, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape exhibits a dark ruby/purple color as well as dense, black raspberry, black currant, garrigue, licorice and lavender characteristics. Full-bodied with undeniable elegance, minerality and precision, it needs 2andndash;3 years of cellaring and should keep well for 15andndash;20.
