2010 Chateauneuf du Pape at a great price

2010 Roche Audran Châteauneuf du Pape Rouge...$44.98
Was $65.99
Lowest price online is $61.99
Comes from the area of La Cristia which borders the vines of Château Rayas. Consequently, the sandy terroir gives Vincent's Châteauneuf a similar delicate character. This vineyard is planted entirely with Grenache vines which are now all 40 to 50 years old. 

Only 150 Cases Produced. 

This wine represents a magnificent example of pure Grenache. The almost mystical combination of elegance, power, and depth found in this wine is what has given Châteauneuf du Pape it renown for centuries. The color of this wine is deep garnet. Aromas of red cherry fruit with Herbes de Provence notes dominate the nose. In the mouth, dark fruit flavors of black cherry, raspberry, and plum are revealed. Given the depth and power of this wine, it remains amazingly delicate and light on the tongue all the way through to its exceptionally long finish.
