The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Vendange exhibits complex aromas of smoked duck, lead pencil shavings, jammy black fruits, truffles, melted asphalt and forest floor in its deep, rich, multidimensional, super-rich personality. With good acidity, sweet, well-integrated tannin and a long finish, this wine should evolve beautifully over the next 15+ years.

Quite a bit richer and a blend of mostly Grenache, the 2010 La Ferme du Mont Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vendange delivers a sweet array of juicy black cherry and blackberry styled fruit, sweet spice, wild herbs, licorice, and loads of floral qualities that flow to a full-bodied, round, and supple 2010 that has outstanding concentration, plenty of texture, and the hallmark purity and freshness of the vintage. Relatively approachable, this will nevertheless benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age, and age gracefully for 15+ years.
