A potentially great wine in the making, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Roc-Epine (made from an identical blend) possesses awesome concentration as well as a gorgeous nose of roasted Provencal herbs, lavender, blueberries, blackberries and cassis. With good acidity, sweet, well-integrated tannins and super concentration, it will be drinkable in 2-3 years, and should evolve for 15+ years thereafter. These two Chateauneuf du Papes are both highly recommended. - Robert Parker 93-95 Points This delivers a delicious core of plum, boysenberry and blackberry fruit, studded with licorice, fruitcake and roasted fig notes.

Youthfully backward, hinting at aromas and flavors of redcurrant and cherry, with a spicy accent. Slow to unwind...
