The 2010 chateauneuf du pape tradition was cropped at 23 hectoliters per hectare (overall it was a small crop in 2010), and is a blend of mostly grenache and 20% syrah, with 80% aged in old wood foudres and 20% in small barrels. The alcohol level came in at 15.5%. Classic black raspberry, black cherry, garrigue, and lavender notes hit the palate with considerable authority. The syrah component provides a slightly deeper purple hue to the color than is apparent in some other vintages. The extra level of concentration due to the tiny yields has resulted in a full-bodied, rich wine with super purity. (RP)
