    Looking at the 2010s and a brilliant vintage for Laurence, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape offers up classic Pegau aromas and flavors of ripe dark fruits, garrigue, cured meats, tobacco leaf, saddle leather and hints of game. Full-bodied and beautifully concentrated, it offers a seamless, layered profile on the palate with thrilling mid-palate depth, sweet, yet substantial tannin, and a blockbuster finish that stays fresh and beautifully focused. Quite polished by this estates standards, it nevertheless screams southern France and I doubt it's possible to have too much of this beauty in the cellar. It will absolutely thrill over the coming 2-3 decades. Drink 2016-2030.

    Deep ruby. An intensely perfumed bouquet evokes dried cherry, cassis, potpourri and smoked meat, with a spicy nuance adding vivacity. Rich but energetic on the palate, offering sweet dark fruit flavors and notes of candied lavender and anise. Chewy tannins add grip to a long, smoky and powerful finish, which leaves a bitter cherry note behind. Definitely built for the long haul; don't touch this wine for at least six or seven years.

    Intense, with the tarry, bittersweet cocoa'fueled grip of the vintage running through a well-endowed core of crushed plum, blackberry paste and braised fig. The muscular finish picks up notes of brick dust, pepper, warm chestnut leaf and smoldering charcoal. A throwback profile, with a hyperripe core of fruit'and it works.

    On this wonderful wine night (and wonderful food and family setting), we had two outstanding wines, the 2010 Pegau and the 2010 Saxum James Berry Vineyard. Both were stunning wines; it would be VERY hard to say one was better than the other. The differences, for two similar wines of the same year and of the similar construction, were marked. Certainly, the Pegau was less fruit forward, more defined and gave you the sense that you were drinking something made of silk. The Saxum was part fruit bomb (not bad or not Napa Cab) and part understatement. You could drink the Saxum in little sips and almost taste each individual bite of a strawberry, apple and fig. Just a stunning wine. Both were over the top good.
