2010 Mont-Redon Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1249486 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 An exceptionally strong effort, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape should eclipse the quality, longevity and overall character of the 2009. Its dense ruby/purple hue is followed by notes of cassis, kirsch, lavender, pepper and earth. Deep, full-bodied, textured, pure and long with sweet tannins as well as admirable focus and delineation, it will age gracefully for 15 or more years. (RP)  (10/2011)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Bright ruby. Sexy aromas of red fruit preserves, potpourri and herbs, with a spicy topnote. Juicy and precise, offering sweet raspberry and cherry flavors and a touch of smoky minerality. Showing impressive finesse and a light touch for the vintage. Very elegant, with a strikingly long, floral-dominated finish and gentle tannins. (JR)  (1/2013)

91 points Wine Spectator

 Dark plum, currant paste and steeped cherry notes are lined with fruitcake, anise and ganache accents. Offers a fleshy feel through the finish.  (4/2014)

90 points Wine & Spirits

 Modern and polished, this is an aristocratic Châteauneuf, shining in the clarity of its red fruit and filled out with the richness of expensive oak. Give it a little more time to integrate, then decant for prime rib.  (2/2014)

Jancis Robinson

 Certified raisonnée. 65% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 8% Mourvèdre, 2% Cinsault. 50% spends 12 months in inox, 50% spends 12 months in barrique, 280,000 bottles. Mid crimson. Open nose, the sort of wine you’d expect to have been grown on sand. Very juicy, plump fruit. Firm, dry finish. Lots of acidity. Appetising though relatively open without exceptionally pronounced tannins.  (12/2011)

Rhone Blends



- 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.


- 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.
