A big step up is the 2010 Roger Sabon Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Réservée. A blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and 10% Mourvedre that comes from 60-75 year-old vines and aged for 18 months in foudre and demi-muid, it exhibits classic southern Rhône aromatics of blackberry, kirsch liqueur, garrigue, spice-box, and big minerality on the nose. This is followed by a full-bodied, elegant, and seamless 2010 that has a balanced, harmonious feel, excellent freshness, and gorgeously polished tannin. It is no blockbuster and leans more towards elegance than sheer power, yet it gains in stature and class with time in the glass. It should be cellared for 3-5 years, and then consumed over the following 10-15 years.
The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reserve reveals a boatload of roasted Provencal herbs intermixed with lavender, licorice, cassis, kirsch, cedar, underbrush and pepper. In addition to great fruit, it possesses fabulous concentration, a full-bodied mouthfeel and a sensational, 40-second finish. It should drink well for 12-15+ years. (RP)
