Tasting Notes

A monumental effort meriting a perfect score, the super-rich 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is a 4,000-bottle blend of 50% Grenache, 40% Mourvedre and 10% Syrah from 55- to 105-year-old vines and was aged for 18 months in small oak. The wine offers majestic blackberry and cassis fruit intermixed with kirsch, licorice and subtle Provencal herbs in the background. It is akin to chewing meat in the mouth given its viscosity and thickness. This utterly amazing wine comes close to being over the top, but it pulls back just in time. A massive Chateauneuf du Pape (even for a 2010), it needs 5-6 years of cellaring and should age effortlessly for 25-30 years. Bravo!

Provenance

This Canadian client has been collecting for over ten years - his interest (mainly in red wines) budding from tasting with good friends. This can be seen in his fine Italian and Californian offerings, along with a touch of Champagne. The main source for his collection was through the LCBO, the Waddingtons Auction, and direct from winery. All of which were stored in a temperature and humidity controlled wine cooler.
