A solid, purestyle, with a beam of very fresh plum, black cherry and toasted anise notes moving through, followed by pretty hints of tar and red licorice on the polished, accessible finish. Shows more balance than oomph and should hang on nicely in the cellar. Drink now through 2020. 1,200 cases imported.-JM
(100% grenache that was raised entirely in concrete): Bright ruby-red. Black raspberry, lavender and spices on the fragrant nose and in the mouth. Juicy and nicely concentrated, with strong finishing cut, lingering spiciness and integrated tannins that provide shape and grip.
Chapoutier’s 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape La Bernardine (100% Grenache) exhibits notes of loamy soil, cranberries, black cherries, bouquet garni and a touch of licorice. Medium to full-bodied and pure with good acidity, more minerality than is normally found in this cuvee, and a long finish, it should drink well for 10-15 years.

Other text
Châteauneuf-du-Pape is known for it amazing soil of large rolled stones which laid on the bed of the Rhône river in ancient times. These stones hold the heat of the day’s sun and warm the vines in the brisk evening air. Chapoutier’s La Bernardine is quite unique in that it is made up of only one to three grape varieties when 13 are allowed by AOC law. At such low yields, Michel produces a rich, flavorful wine with moderate tannins.
