2010 Lucien & Andre Brunel "Les Cailloux" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1121882 95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A brilliant Châteauneuf-du-Pape that should not be missed is the 2010 Les Cailloux Châteauneuf-du-Pape! A blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre, and 10% Syrah (with only the Syrah being aged in smaller, new barrels), it has put on weight since I tasted it last year and offers up a spectacular array of spiced red fruits, garrigue, small flowers, licorice, and toast on the nose to go with a full-bodied, layered and perfectly proportioned mouth feel. This complex, seamless, and rich Châteauneuf-du-Pape will age effortlessly for two decades! Inner quote mark (9/2012)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Darker in color than both the '11 and '12, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape offers full-bodied richness and depth to go with loads of darker fruits, crushed rock-like minerality, roasted herbs and licorice. Beautifully concentrated, textured, with ripe tannin, it should be at its best from 2016-2025. (JD) Inner quote mark (9/2015)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This has a nice old-school edge, with toasted chestnut and singed juniper notes leading the way for dark cassis, blackberry and plum fruit flavors. A strong tarry spine drives the finish, where hot stone, lavender and tobacco lurk as well. For the cellar. Best from 2015 through 2025. (JM) Inner quote mark (10/2012)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright ruby. Red and dark berries and fresh flowers on the highly fragrant nose and in the mouth. Juicy and expansive, with a seamless texture and suave floral and spicecake notes clinging to a long, focused finish. (JR) Inner quote mark (1/2013)
