While we have been lucky to showcase some superb vintages in years past ('07 and '09 come immediately to mind), the 2010 might outshine them all.  Without the spikes in temperature that are a hallmark of  both 03 and 09, 2010 was characterized by a cool and dry Summer. Yields were much smaller than usual at 27hl/ha. Quantities are very small but quality is off the charts.
The wines are large-framed as can be expected but they have a freshness, vivacity and balance which is truly exceptional.

"This is the Chateauneuf vintage I've been waiting for!"
- Jean Luc Le Dû

"Some producers think 2010 eclipses 2007 because of the wines' vivid freshness and focus. Throughout the southern Rhône, the hallmarks of the vintage are very dense purple, sometimes even blue/black colors as well as higher acid levels that have not been seen since 2004 and 2001. In fact, 2010's paradox is that I can't remember a vintage so concentrated, powerful and rich that also has such zesty acidity." --Robert Parker

"The acidity levels are high in the '10s but the fruit is ripe, almost like 2007 or even 2003 in some cases.  But there's no roasted character.  When those two elements are in harmony the wines are classic, classic Chateauneuf."
--Chistophe Sabon of Domaine de la Janasse

"The 2010's are devoid of puppy fat and are better at expressing terroir."
--Jancis Robinson

Stay tuned – more wines are to arrive in the next coming weeks and months!
