2010 Clos Saint Jean Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1133340 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The classic-styled 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape exhibits plenty of kirsch, Christmas fruitcake, pepper, spice box, smoked herbs and loads of raspberry and black cherry fruit. It is a full-bodied, slightly more reserved and less exuberant effort than the 2007 was at a similar age. It will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age, and last for 10-15 years.  (10/2012)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Deep ruby. Aromas and flavors of raspberry, bitter cherry, licorice and candied flowers. Becomes smokier with air and picks up a licorice nuance. Fleshy but lively, with strong finishing punch, lingering floral and spice notes and slow-building tannins.  (2/2013)

Jancis Robinson

 90% Grenache, 10% Syrah. 20,000 bottles. Direct, bright, very ripe cranberry fruit. Suave, velvety texture. Lots of tannin but the fruit almost covers it.  (12/2011)

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.
