International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 166

(made from the estate's oldest grenache vines, in La Crau and Pignan): Inky ruby. Sexy, floral-accented scents of dark fruit preserves, garrigue and licorice. Offers intense black raspberry and anise flavors that become more tangy with air. Shows a suave blend of richness and vivacity and finishes on a gently tannic note, with superb delineation and length.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 203

Although it is extremely limited in availability, readers should not forget the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Grenaches de Pierre. This remarkable wine boasts inky, raspberry and kirsch liqueur notes interwoven with spring flowers, loamy, sandy soil, balsam wood and forest floor, and a full-bodied, multidimensional mouthfeel. The color is a dense purple, there is good acidity underlying the wine's tremendous opulence and voluptuous texture, and the tannins are sweet. It is another fabulous example of old vine Grenache that should drink well for 15-20 years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Marries massive layers of lush, modern-styled boysenberry paste, plum paÌ?te de fruit, anise and blackberry paste to old-school char- coal, 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.
