M. Chapoutier Châteauneuf-du-Pape la Bernardine 2010
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.
External Reviews for M. Chapoutier Châteauneuf-du-Pape la Bernardine
100% black grenache. Deep garnet in color with the nose expressing aromas of dried fruits, red fruits, and cocoa, roasted coffee appearing with the years. Very powerfull mouthfeel, with long length. The fruits and the chocolate are the major aromatics of this wonderfully rich dessert wine. It can work as an aperitive. Also pairs well with blue cheese, chocolate desserts, cakes, dried fruits dessert, caramel, and coffee. Chapoutier Website
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.

This wine is garnet red in color. On the nose, aromas of red fruits, mainly morello cherries, and spices, like licorice and grey pepper. This wine has a great structure with firm and silky tannins.
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.

A magnificent effort, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Barbe Rac boasts huge notes of kirsch, exotic herbs, lavender, cedar, fig, black cherry, black currant, licorice and roasted meats. This flamboyant, rich, full-throttle Chateauneuf du Pape should age well for two decades. It will be interesting to follow this wine’s evolution alongside the brilliant 2009 and 2007 Barbe Racs.
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.
