Châteauneuf Rge 2010 – Rhone Report

The Rhone Report

Rouge – Vieilles Vignes

Note : 91-94

“Tasted as a barrel sample, the 2010 Domaine La Millière Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes is an old vine blend of 60% Grenache and then equal parts Mourvedre, Syrah, Cinsault, and Counoise, that’s aged all in foudre and concrete tank. It displays a deep, semi-opaque purple color to go with aromas of crunchy black raspberry, wet stone like minerality, sappy, resinous herbs, licorice, and some exotic spice thrown in for good measure. Full-bodied and structured on the palate, with the textbook 2010 freshness and focus, as well as solid concentration, and a fair dose of ripe tannin, this classic 2010 needed lots of air to shine and continually gained weight and depth over the three days I had the bottle open. There’s an elegance and balance to it that will allow it to drink well on release, yet it should ideally be given 5-6 years of bottle age.”
