93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January/February 2010
($50; 70% grenache, 15% mourvedre, 10% syrah and 5% cinsault) Vivid ruby. Fresh red and black fruits, blood orange, minerals, rose and smoky garrigue on the nose. Juicy, spicy and expansive, with explosive inner-mouth perfume and superb intensity to the sweet raspberry and cherry flavors. Really classic Chateauneuf, with strong lingering sweetness and spiciness and zero rough edges. But there's also a weightless quality here that belies the long, warm growing season. This has the freshness and balance to age for a long time.
