This cuvée reflects a specific terroir and grape variety, as well as a hundred years of ups and downs - unstinting efforts, though crises, wars, etc... as well as years of joy and plenty. The century-old Grenache vines are deeply rooted in this mythical plot like no other, with sandy and red Comtat sandstone soil. Not only rare and unique, the resulting wine is indescribably... pure, as well as ethereal, delicate, elegant, fresh, natural, floral, silky, unctuous and absolute. "Pure features a wonderful bouquet and texture, but so much more."

Wine SpectatorThis provides a very flamboyant display of raspberry preserves, cherry sauce and fig pâte de fruit notes, with remarkable depth and a gorgeously creamy mouthfeel. In the background flitter notes of pastis, apple wood and licorice snap, giving the fruit a sounding board to continue through the remarkably long finish. Though it may ultimately be burning the candle at both ends, this is a really gorgeous example of the style. Best from 2015 through 2030. 280 cases made.

Wine AdvocateA wine that will rival the '05 in another handful of years, the utterly profound 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Pure offers the most purity and precision of any of the cuvees, yet backs it up with incredible concentration and depth. Giving up tons of blackberry, kirsch, black cherries, pepper, ground herbs and licorice, it's impeccably balanced and manages somehow to deliver an insane amount of fruit and texture in a lively, graceful and elegant style. Grenache at its finest, give bottles 2-3 years and count yourself lucky anytime you're able to drink this elixir. It should have 20-25 years of longevity.
