2010 Château Simian “Le Traversier” Châteauneuf-du-Pape

$50.00 $25.99 $25.99

From one of Southern Rhone’s greatest vintages of all time, a vintage the Wine Spectator describes as producing “…beautifully ripe, racy, terroir-driven wines…” earning an overall vintage rating of 98 Points, the best in more than 30 years. While you might expect to pay upwards of $50/btl for a high-quality Châteauneuf-du-Pape from this vintage, Château Simian at $25.99/btl is a terrific find.

Made predominantly from Grenache (70%) and harmonized with Syrah, Cinsaut and Mourvedre, Château Simian’s 2010 Châteauneuf-du-Pape is striking, poised and polished. It’s classic Châteauneuf-du-Pape . With several years of developing in the bottle, the 2010 is really starting to show its strength.

Since the distributor has less than 40 cases left in the Country, I don’t expect this wine to be around for long. If you’re on the lookout for a classic Châteauneuf-du-Pape from a historic vintage, here’s an opportunity to secure one at about half of its original retail price…

Description

2010 Château Simian “Le Traversier” Châteauneuf-du-Pape

 

From Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, “The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape (70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and the rest Mourvedre and Cinsault) possesses wonderful sweet notes of black currants, raspberries, and cherries intermixed with hints of Christmas fruitcake, loamy soil, incense and licorice. Rich and full with good acidity and ripe tannin, it should age effortlessly for 10-15 years” 90 Points
From Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar, “Opaque ruby. Assertive aromas of raspberry preserves and cherry, with a high-pitched note of peppery spices. Fresh and light on its feet, offering zesty red fruit flavors that gain sweetness with air. Finishes smooth and long, with nicely integrated tannins and lingering florality.” 90 Points
