2010 Raymond Usseglio "Tradition" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Ruby-red. Lively red berry and floral aromas show very good upfront appeal. Juicy raspberry and cherry flavors pick up a bitter chocolate quality with air, along with a note of candied flowers. Finishes gently sweet and spicy, with a vivid raspberry note.
