Flavors of melted licorice, blood orange, black tea, macerated black currant, anise and smoldering tobacco have been woven together here with a thread of alder that ties up the full-bodied finish with grace. Shows power, but also definition, and retains a lovely, lingering feel. Best from 2013 through 2026. 89 cases imported.

The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape l’Accent de la Roquete is composed of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre. This seductive, fleshy red exhibits lots of raspberry, black currant and kirsch notes intermixed with hints of spring flowers, pepper and spice. Full-bodied and rich with good acidity, it should drink well for 10-15 years.

Bright ruby-red. Exotic, floral-accented aromas of raspberry and cherry liqueur, Asian spices and herbs. Spicy, penetrating red fruit flavors gain weight with air and pick up deeper licorice and cherry-cola qualities. Fine-grained tannins give shape and grip to an impressively long, floral-dominated finish. I don't recall ever having a more impressive wine from this estate.
