Lot #513. La Bastide Saint Dominique Chateauneuf du Pape Secrets de Pignan 2010

Description: Consists of 3 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 95 WA.
"The blockbuster 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Secrets de Pignan Vieilles Vignes is a great buy in the marketplace as prices for this estate have not yet gone through the roof as they have for other old vine cuvees of Chateauneuf du Pape. Nearly as good as the 2007, the 2010 exhibits copious quantities of black raspberries, black cherries, forest floor, licorice, pepper and bouquet garni. Terrific structure, a full-bodied mouthfeel and good freshness and liveliness make for a fabulous wine . . . . The estate’s wines were completely sold out and even the owners had no 2010 stock remaining. With 25 acres in Chateauneuf du Pape as well as larger acreage in the Cotes du Rhone, this estate has been on top of its game for some time thanks to the qualitative improvements and commitments of the Bonnet family. Nearly all of their vineyards are in the northeastern sector of Chateauneuf du Pape, particularly in the areas known as Pignan (with sandy, sometimes clay soils) and the small boulder-covered Chapouin region."
