M. Chapoutier Châteauneuf-du-Pape la Bernardine 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Color: Garnet red. Aroma: Red fruit aromas, mainly Morello cherries and spices (liquorice, grey pepper). Taste: Well-structured, with with firm and silky tannins.

M. Chapoutier:
The name CHAPOUTIER is present in the Rhône Valley since 1808. In 1879, the distant ancestor Polydor CHAPOUTIER was the first to begin to buy vines, thus moving from the status of wine-grower of an estate to that of a viticulturist, a wine producer and a businessman. The pioneering spirit was already present in the family.

A solid, pure style, with a beam of very fresh plum, black cherry and toasted anise notes moving through, followed by pretty hints of tar and red licorice on the polished, accessible finish. Shows more balance than oomph and should hang on nicely in the cellar. Drink now through 2020.

There are 440 cases of the 2010 Cote Rotie La Mordoree. While it is a very strong effort I would rank it a point or two below the 2009 which I believe is the finest La Mordoree since the awesome 1991. It offers an impressive dense ruby/purple color along with a sweet bouquet of bacon fat black olives black currants raspberries earth and forest floor. Ripe and medium-bodied with light to moderate tannin it is somewhat closed at present and will benefit from 4-5 years of cellaring. It shou

Opaque ruby. An exotically perfumed bouquet presents candied dark berries and cherry-cola with notes of Indian spices anise and smoked meat building with air. Fleshy but focused on the palate with intense black and blue fruit flavors and a touch of candied violet. Tangy minerals add lift and cut to a strikingly long smoky and gently tannic finish.

Bright ruby-red. Black raspberry, lavender and spices on the fragrant nose and in the mouth. Juicy and nicely concentrated, with strong finishing cut, lingering spiciness and integrated tannins that provide shape and grip.

Chapoutier’s 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape La Bernardine (100% Grenache) exhibits notes of loamy soil, cranberries, black cherries, bouquet garni and a touch of licorice. Medium to full-bodied and pure with good acidity, more minerality than is normally found in this cuvee, and a long finish, it should drink well for 10–15 years.

The best La Bernardine I can recall, this is a wonderfully full-bodied yet elegant rendering of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Garrigue and floral notes make a healthy impression on the nose, while the expansive herb and black cherry flavors linger on the silky finish. Drink now–2025.
