Tasting Notes:
rated: October 1, 2011 , Robert Parker erobertparker.com
97 points "Composed of 80% Grenache, 12% Syrah, 4% Mourvedre and 4% miscellaneous varietals, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee tips the scales at 14.8% alcohol, which is slightly lower than the 2009. It reveals a deep ruby/purple color along with wonderful sweetness and lots of roasted meat characteristics intermixed with notions of herbs, forest floor, kirsch and black fruits. The tannins are surprisingly soft, the wine has great intensity and a blacker fruit profile than even the 2009. It looks to be another superb effort that should slightly eclipse the 2009. (97-99)."

92 points "Bright ruby. Powerful cherry and dark berry aromas are complicated by lavender, smoke and spicecake nuances. Deeply pitched blackberry and bitter cherry flavors are lifted by slow-building mineral and cracked pepper qualities and given grip by a late kick of tannins. The cherry and pepper notes repeat on the broad, clinging finish. 92-94 points"

97 points "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. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and others. 6,580 cases made. –JM " Best 2015-2035

98 points "This 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 estate’s standards.
