2010 Domaine de la Charbonnière "Les Hauts Brusquières Cuvée Spéciale" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1085016 97 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2010 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Spéciale Les Hautes Brusquières comes from a cool terroir in the northern part of the appellation and is 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvèdre brought up in a mix of tank and barrel. It’s always the biggest and most opulent of the special cuvées from this terrific estate, and the 2010 is still young, but just starting to turn the corner and hit its drinking plateau. Garrigue, blackcurrants, crushed rocks, pepper, and a gorgeous meatiness all emerge from the glass, and it’s elegant, layered, yet powerful on the palate. This beauty has richness and grace on the palate, with plenty of underlying structure. It will continue drinking brilliantly for another 10-15 years and keep even longer. Inner quote mark (3/2019)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The sensational 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Hautes Brusquieres Cuvee Speciale explodes from the glass with aromas of roasted Provencal herbs/garrigue, cassis, blackberries, kirsch, loamy earth, and a subtle nuance of spring flowers. Full-bodied with superb definition, massive fruit concentration and a long finish displaying dazzling purity, texture and length, this sensational wine is one of the finest wines Domaine de la Charbonniere has yet produced. It should age gracefully for two decades. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2012)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Vivid ruby. Black raspberry, cola and potpourri on the highly perfumed nose. Sappy and densely packed, offering sweet red and dark berry compote flavors and a touch of lavender pastille. Closes smooth and broad, with resonating spiciness and excellent clarity.
