2010 Mas de Boislauzon "Les Deux Chênes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1115780 93 points Wine Spectator

 This is dark but racy and driven, with a gorgeous Turkish coffee note giving way to flavors of roasted fig, blackberry paste and baker's chocolate. Polished and seamless through the finish, with a tarry echo adding grip and length. Best from 2014 through 2027.  (10/ 2012)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The best value from this estate is the sensational 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape, a blend of 70% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 15% Mourvedre from 50-year-old vines aged in concrete tank as well as old wood foudres. Copious aromas of garrigue, seaweed, ground pepper, creme de cassis and kirsch jump from the glass of this opaque ruby/purple-colored, full-bodied, multidimensional, rich, pure 2010. Drink it over the next 10-15 years. This tiny 22-acre estate situated in the northern tier of Chateauneuf du Pape was founded in 1950, but has been brought to brilliance by Chaussy family over the last decade.  (10/ 2012)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 (70% grenache, 25% mourvedre and 5% syrah): Bright purple. Aromas and flavors of blackberry, cherry and smoky herbs. Picks up a subtle gamy nuance with air, along with a suave lavender pastille quality. Fine-grained tannins give grip to a sweet, persistent finish, which echoes the smoky note.  (2/ 2013)

Jancis Robinson

 Certified organic. Bois Lauzon, Palestor 70% Grenache, 5% Syrah, 20% Mourvèdre, 50% élevage in foudre and 50% in concrete. Very aromatic in dry, rather leafy idiom atypical for Châteauneuf. Very well-managed tannins which are here in abundance. Juicy fruit. Rather splendid peacock’s tail finish. 17/20 points.  (12/ 2011)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Rhone Blends

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them. Click for a list of bestselling items from all of France.
Sub-Region:

Rhone

- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
