2010 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Cuvée Tradition, Domaine Bosquet des Papes

Southern Rhône

$40.00 per Bottle


Out of Stock




"The 2010 Châteauneuf du Pape Tradition was even better than when I tasted it last year prior to bottling. A wine of great intensity, it may be the finest Tradition cuvée yet made at Bosquet des Papes. Its opaque purple color is accompanied by sumptuous notes of balsam wood, roasted Provencal herbs/garrigue, sweet black raspberry and blackberry fruit and hints of truffles and lavender. This dense, full-bodied, amazing Châteauneuf is one of the top values of the vintage. Enjoy it over the next 15-20 years." Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #203

"A broad, gutsy style, with bittersweet cocoa and Turkish coffee notes leading the way for an immense yet still tightly wound core of blackberry, fig paste and steeped black currant fruit. The tar-coated finish has heft, but also serious cut. Best from 2014 through 2028. 3,000 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Saturated ruby. Blackberry, cherry and lavender on the intensely perfumed, spicy nose and in the mouth. Deep and expansive, with impressive back-end punch and slow-building smokiness. The spice and floral notes carry through a long, sweet, gently tannic finish. Decant this one if you can't resist opening a bottle now." Josh Raynolds, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

"Dark crimson. Cool nose. Energetic, supple fruit. Great spread of flavours on the finish, mainly in the black-fruit mould. Long and well balanced though it is difficult to discern the tannins. Until the very end! Extremely well-made wine. Promises well." JancisRobinson.com, 20 December 2011
