This is a delicious GSM blend from Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Showing great complexity with a great mouthfeel. Rich and elegant.
This 11 year old from the great 2010 vintage is so tasty and delicious now, and will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years.
Robert Parker 95 points. Wine Enthusiasts 96 points.
Needs 4 hours to open up properly, and show the tannins and complexity, so be patient.
I've had multiple vintages of this wine, and it is always a treat.
I paired it with dried meats and cheeses.
A blend of mostly Grenache, Mourvedre and Syrah with other appellation varietals.

Bright and very ripe fruit plum, strawberry and cherry with beautiful spice (almost jalapeño like). At first it seems like it’s past it’s prime, but then smooths out brilliantly with lasting finish that tapers nicely. — 17 days ago
