External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

(Vigne Centenaires) The profound 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Imperiale-Vigne Centenaires (made from the same blend as the 2009) is stunning. Dense purple to the rim with an extraordinary perfume of blackberries, black cherry liqueur, licorice and... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

The American importer produces a slightly different blend called Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Girard, and the 2009 and 2010 are essentially identical in quality. The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Girard reveals slightly more meatiness and garrigue notes than the 2009, but the two wines are similar in every other aspect. Full-bodied, rich and pure, it, like the 2009, will evolve over the next 10–15 years.

Deep purple core with a fushcia rim. Initially this is tightly wound, but then reveals plenty of high-toned aromas including floral, red fruits, and crushed rock. With time in the glass this really opens up nicely with layers of black and blue fruits... Geoffrey Binder.

The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Tradition exhibits elegant blueberry and black raspberry fruit, hints of burning charcoal and Provencal herbs, and good acidity in its full-bodied, fresh, lively, vivacious personality.

Bright violet color. Spicy dark berries, anise and musky tobacco on the highly perfumed nose. Nicely concentrated flavors of bitter cherry and cassis are complicated by candied licorice and dark chocolate. Chewy and precise on the finish, which shows subtle sweetness and a lingering cherry pit flavor. I suspect that this wine will be even better with a couple more years of bottle age.
