    Still not in bottle, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Inspiration is more sexy and perfumed than the Cuvee da Capo, with incredible notions of roasted meats, saddle leather, sweet currants and Provencal herbs all emerging from the glass. There's a single barrel of this full-bodied, deeply concentrated elixir and I've no doubt it will be very hard to come by. In addition, this cuvee is only bottled in magnum. Nevertheless, it is spectacular, and I suspect will also have close to three decades of longevity.

    Ruby-red. Heady, spice-tinged aromas of candied red fruits, lavender pastille, incense and licorice, with a smoky nuance gaining strength with aeration. Offers vibrant, palate-staining raspberry liqueur and bitter cherry flavors lifted by juicy acidity and a hint of white pepper. Supple tannins come up late and add shape to the strikingly long, sweet, penetrating finish. This wine is still aging in a foudre .
