Size: 750ml
Type: Red Wine
Varietal: Red Rhone Blend
Country: France
Region: Rhone, Chateauneuf Du Pape

"The 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Imperiale Vignes Centenaire, which comes from some of the appellation’s oldest vines (planted in 1901 and 1902), is composed of 90% Grenache and the rest a field blend of other authorized varietals. Aged primarily in tank with a small percentage in barrel, the ripe, dense 2011 is one of the stars of the vintage. Notes of melted road tar, licorice, blackberries, cassis and incense are all present in this super-rich, forward, lush, opulent wine."

2010 Chateau La Nerthe Chateauneuf du Pape

"The 2010 La Nerthe Chateauneuf du Pape exhibits the rare combination of unbridled power and freshness, minerality and abundant aromatics. A well-made, delicious red, with blueberry, boysenberry, black raspberry fruit, some background wood smoke, and the tell-tale Provencal garrigue, pepper and loamy soil notes, it is a wine of finesse, power and richness."

2012 Domaine Charvin Chateauneuf du Pape

"More backwards and tannic, the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape (same blend as the 2012) was tight and structured at the time of this tasting (as was the 2011, which was much more approachable and open when I tasted it from a bottle in the U.S.), with serious pepper, herbs de Provence and assorted darker berry-styled fruit. Cutting a broad path across the palate, with full-bodied richness, bright acidity and edgy tannin, it should soften up over the next year and be reasonably accessible with short-term cellaring. A solid 12-15 year drink window sounds about right."

2011 Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf du Pape La Crau

"Bright ruby-red. Black raspberry, cherry compote, potpourri and Asian spices on the highly perfumed nose. Juicy red and dark berry flavors stain the palate, showing terrific clarity and spicy lift. The spicy quality comes back strong on the finish, which is framed by silky, harmonious tannins. In a graceful, almost weightless style, with zero excess fat but noteworthy flavor intensity."
