Very expressive, with layers of lush blueberry coulis, fig paste, currant confiture and melted red licorice all wrapped with toasted spice and coursing through the vivacious finish. A gorgeous display of fruit, with the spine to keep it balanced. Drink now through 2027.

The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes (100% Grenache from 70- to 80-year-old vines planted in pure sand) was aged in 2- to 3-year-old small barrels. While it is a nearer-term drinking proposition, it does reveal some structure as well as the vintageandrsquo;s reserved personality. Despite the structure of the vintage and its backward character, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes has enough openness and appeal that it can be drunk in its youth, although 2andndash;3 years of cellaring is suggested. The wineandrsquo;s dense plum/purple color is followed by a sweet bouquet of roasted herbs, black truffles, kirsch, raspberries and incense. Full-bodied, powerful and rich with decent acidity as well as moderate tannin and an exceptionally long finish, this 2010 should hit its prime in 4andndash;5 years and last for 15andndash;20.

A dark, nicely toasty style, with bittersweet cocoa and espresso bean notes followed by muscular blackberry, black currant paste and braised fig flavors. The long, fleshy finish lets the cocoa edge hang on, with a tarry echo. This oozes fruit, but has the spine to go the distance. Best from 2012 through 2024.

A sensational effort, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes (100% Grenache from 70- to 80-year-old vines planted in pure sand) was aged in 2- to 3-year-old barrels. Incredible aromas of roasted Provencal herbs, licorice, truffles, kirsch and black raspberries jump from the glass of this dark ruby/purple-hued wine. Full-bodied and voluptuous as well as extremely elegant and poised, the sweetness of the tannin and the wineandrsquo;s unctuosity and viscosity are all remarkable. This is a blockbuster, old vine Grenache to drink over the next 15+ years.

Winemaker's Notes:

The combination of different terroirs is ideal to obtain a Châteauneuf-du-Pape with finesse, density, richness and elegance, together with a great ageing potential.
