2010 La Celestiere "Tradition" Chateauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1253235 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 A blend of 70% Grenache and the rest Mourvedre, Cinsault and other varietals, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Tradition exhibits a classic Provencal nose of roasted herbs, kirsch liqueur, lavender, forest floor and balsam wood. It is an impressively built, concentrated, deep ruby/purple-colored effort that should drink well for 10-15 years. (RP)  (10/2012)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Bright purple. Aromas and flavors of black raspberry and blueberry with spice and floral notes adding complexity. Juicy and focused, with very good finishing clarity and lingering floral and spicecake nuances. Tannins came up with aeration but weren't a match for this wine's energetic fruit. (JR)  (1/2013)

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.
