The nose was restrained, even after three hours in decanter. Red berry fruit dominated with chalky minerals and a hint of herbs and funk. On the palate, it was youthful and compact with candied red fruits and violet candies. Rich fruit extract stained the palate but was replaced by a sensation of heat that lingered long after the fruit had faded. (88 points)

This is one of the worst wines I have ever tried to drink. It was not, in fact, drinkable. I have never returned a bottle of wine in my life but if I remembered where I bought it I would certainly return it. My bottle had a very bitter and stale taste; almost as if it had been sitting open for two or three weeks.

The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Tradition offers abundant aromas of Christmas fruitcake cassis kirsch spice box smoked game and charcuterie. The wine hits the palate with a thunderous display of sweet glycerin rich ripe fruit some structure and a moderately tannic long finish. It will be even better with 2-3 years of cellaring and should last for 12-15+ years. -Robert Parker Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Well-built, with a core of dark plum, blackberry and black cherry fruit backed by plum cake and black licorice, featuring a dusting of charcoal on the finish. Very solid and dense, showing perfumy black tea and singed sandalwood notes lurking in the background. Should age nicely. Best from 2016 through 2030.

The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Tradition offers abundant aromas of Christmas fruitcake, cassis, kirsch, spice box, smoked game and charcuterie. The wine hits the palate with a thunderous display of sweet glycerin, rich, ripe fruit, some structure and a moderately tannic, long finish. It will be even better with 2-3 years of cellaring, and should last for 12-15+ years. Deep ruby-red. Ripe red and dark berry scents are complicated by notes of garrigue and licorice. Lush, sappy black raspberry and mulberry flavors are lifted by a zesty mineral note and a hint of cracked pepper. Shows good heft and finishes with sweet, clinging red fruit character. Lots of power here but this wine is carrying no excess poundage. A fresh, crunchy style, with bouncy honeysuckle, honeydew and green fig flavors followed by a lively, minerally finish. Delicious. Drink now. 3,000 cases made. -JM ** Only 6 in Stock **

Winemaker's Notes:

The historical wine from the estate. Mainly coming from old vines of Grenache, a classic Chateauneuf-du-Pape exhibiting its terroir with lots of depth.
