Domaine Cristia Chateauneuf du Pape 2010

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.

RED WINES The grapes are selected in the vineyard, then destemmed before being put into vats. Three weeks of fermentation and maceration in concrete vats follow, with the use of indigenous yeasts. Temperatures are kept low in order to produce aromatic wines. We do not insist on any massive extraction, but prefer the ‘matiere’ to express itself. (Due to the way we work in the vineyards, the grapes possess enough concentration). The pressed juice and free-run juice are blended together according to the vintage. Châteauneuf-du-Pape wines are aged in concrete vats and barrels for 18 months. Côtes-du-Rhône and Vin de Pays are aged only in concrete vats for 8 to 12 months. WHITE WINES The grapes are selected and pressed very quickly. They are fermented and aged for 8 months in a combination of barrels and stainless steel vats. Read less

A very juicy, unctuous, fruit-driven style, with flattering plum, warm linzer torte and boysenberry fruit melded together and backed by lively anise and sweet spice notes. There's a good sappy feel through the finish. For fans of the not-shy style. Drink now through 2023.

A beautiful wine, the fleshy, concentrated 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape exhibits a dense ruby/purple color as well as copious incense, black currant, cherry, damp earth and forest floor notes. This full-bodied 2010 can be drunk now or cellared for another 10andndash;15 years.

Bright ruby. Exotic, smoke-accented aromas of raspberry, cherry and potpourri, with Asian spice adding complexity. Juicy, penetrating red and dark berry flavors show very good energy and appealing sweetness, with tangy acidity adding lift. Finishes seamless and long, with very good clarity and lingering spiciness.

Domaine de Cristia Tradition Chateauneuf-Du-Pape is quite exceptional in the 2010 vintage. Gorgeous structure with deft balance between fruit character, spice, and minerality.
