Expert Reviews

The Domaine Duclaux’s 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape is also outstanding. It exhibits zesty acidity along with lots of earthy, black truffle, black cherry, new saddle leather, roasted meat and cassis notes. Unlike the Vieux Lazaret 2010, this full-bodied, structured offering begs for 2-3 years of cellaring, and should keep for two decades. Jerome Quiot is one of the largest landholders and most influential political figures of the entire region. He also owns a number of domaines and produces significant amounts of Chateauneuf du Pape from his 125 acres of vines, most of it very good, often outstanding. Rating 90+ Drink : 2014-2043 Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (OCT/2012)

Vivid ruby. Ripe aromas of cherry, plum, cola and spices. Nicely concentrated and lively, offering bitter cherry and red berry compote flavors and a hint of candied licorice. Shows very good focus and energy on a long, sappy, penetrating finish that features slow-building, fine-grained tannins. Rating 90 - Tanzer, International Wine Cellar 2013

Grays Tasting Panel Review

It has a big bold nose of red fruit. Red cherries, cranberries, mulberries... All the berries. Hints of allspice, liquorice and leather around the edges.

Great mouthfeel, chewy tannins and fresh acidity combine really well. More berries assail the palate, spice and leather in the middle. It was very hard to put the bottle down.

Take a bottle down to the local Chinese on a Sunday night when you can't be bothered cooking and enjoy with Char Siu Pork or a Peking Duck. Yum!
