The 2010 vintage for Chateauneuf du Pape is tremendous. One of the greatest vintages for the region ever and one that will be sought after for years to come.
Today we are offering what is by far one of the greatest values of the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape vintage. The 2010 Clos St Jean Chateauneuf du Pape is amazing and the 2010 vintage in our opinion is superior to the tremendous 2007 vintage for this wine.
Clos St Jean is clearly one of the top estates of the region today, turning out two 100 point Chateauneuf in 2010 along with one 98, one 95 and one 93 point Chateauneuf. The latter is the only one of the five red Chateauneuf from Clos St Jean that retails for under $50. Today we are offering this stellar wine for only $40 per bottle, a steal today considering so many Chateauneuf are over $75 per bottle and most entry level examples of Chateauneuf do not possess this level of quality or consistency.
"A smoking value and a wine that always over delivers, the 2010 Clos Saint Jean Châteauneuf-du-Pape is loaded with kirsch liqueur, herbs de Provence, licorice, and pepper aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, polished, and supple, with gorgeous tannin, good concentration, and an overall silky feel, it drinks well now, but will continue to evolve and show well for over a decade...93." RR 10/12.
