Tasting Notes

On another level, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape les Grenaches de Pierre is one of the stars of the vintage (and a wine I’ve rated 100 points on more than one occasion). Stunningly beautiful on all accounts, it boasts off-the-charts richness and depth to go with incredible aromas and flavors of black raspberry, cassis, crushed flowers, licorice and sappy garrigue. It has superb concentration, a stacked mid-palate and layers of sweet tannin that emerge on the finish. Like all of Marie’s wines, it has the purity and texture to drink nicely on release, yet the backend depth and structure to evolve gracefully. It’s an incredible example of old vine Grenache that should not be missed!

Score: 99Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate (214), August 2014

Marries massive layers of lush, modern-styled boysenberry paste, plum pâte de fruit, anise and blackberry paste to old-school charcoal, smoldering tobacco and licorice root notes. The structure is well-endowed, but shows polish and integration. Graphite girders support the finish while the acidity flows seamlessly. Captures fruit, terroir and the vintage character beautifully. Best from 2014 through 2030. 167 cases made.
