Bright purple. Powerful aromas of black and blue fruits, cola and allspice. Deeply pitched blackberry and blueberry flavors are impressively concentrated but are carrying no excess fat. Finishes sweet and intense, with the blackberry and spice notes repeating. I suspect that this seductive wine will be enjoyable soon after bottling.

Vivid purple. Blueberry, cherry and Asian spices on the highly perfumed nose. Sweet and energetic, offering intense black and blue fruit flavors that are lifted and sharpened by juicy acidity. Tannins come on late and help shape the long, fruit-dominated finish.

In need of 4-5 years of cellaring, the infantile 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve Sixtine is a behemoth. Made from a blend similar to the 2009s, the 2010 exhibits an opaque purple color in addition to a beautiful nose of melted licorice, blackberrie... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

The 2010 Chateau Sixtine Chateauneuf du Pape performed exquisitely and, again, was one of the top wines of the vintage. With better integration of the new oak than I have previously seen from Jean-Marc Diffonty, this wineandrsquo;s opaque ruby/purple color possesses lots of licorice, asphalt, graphite, blackberry and kirsch notes as well as hints of lavender, forest floor and garrigue. This opulent, full-bodied effort is approachable, but it will not hit its full stride for another 2andndash;4 years. It should drink well for 15andndash;20 years thereafter.
