2010 Domaine St.-Préfert Châteauneuf-du-Pape Collection Charles Giraud

SKU #1455994 100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark An incredible wine that I thought was pure perfection on release, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Collection Charles Giraud still stays at the top of my hierarchy today. The most masculine, powerful and concentrated of the trio, it possesses massive amounts of fruit to go with darker-styled fruits, pan drippings, charred steak and roasted herbs. It has everything you could want in a Southern Rhone. (JD) Inner quote mark (8/2014)

99 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Massive yet remarkably graceful at the same time, with layer upon layer of fig, plum sauce and linzer torte flavors studded with espresso, graphite and black tea. Petrichor, shiso leaf and smoldering tobacco notes fill in on the broad and very muscular yet refined finish. This has terrific weight and loads of grip, yet it's effortless to drink thanks to the seamless mouthfeel. A stunning combination of power and grace. (JM) Inner quote mark (10/2012)

97 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Much more classic in style than the 2007, the 2010 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Collection Charles Giraud is another gorgeous wine from proprietress Isabel Ferrando. The normal blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvèdre, it offers a fabulous bouquet of kirsch and blackberry liqueur, garrigue, incense, lavender, and roasted meat. Beautifully concentrated, layered, and opulent on the palate, with sweet tannin, it’s still young, yet certainly offers an incredible amount of pleasure. 97+ Inner quote mark (12/2017)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Glass-staining ruby. Dark fruit preserves, cherry-cola, floral oils and Smoky Indian spices on the exotically perfumed nose. Stains the palate with deeply pitched blackberry and blueberry flavors, with zesty spice and mineral nuances adding vivacity and cut. Manages to be both weighty and lively, finishing with superb clarity, supple tannins and lingering sweetness. (JR) Inner quote mark (1/2013)
