La Celestiere
Free Shipping on 4 or more

***40% OFF!***

Made with grapes hand-picked from 50 year old vines in the fantastic 2010 vintage, this is a BIG Chateauneuf-du-Pape! The dark berries, dried herbs, and smoked meat qualities here will pair quite nicely with barbecue ribs, grilled lamb, and sauteed mushrooms. A really solid wine!

"...exhibits a classic Provencal nose of roasted herbs, kirsch liqueur, lavender, forest floor and balsam wood. It is an impressively built, concentrated, deep ruby/purple-colored effort that should drink well for 10-15 years."

Drink 2012 - 2027
A blend of Grenache and the rest Mourvedre, Cinsault and other varietals, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Tradition exhibits a classic Provencal nose of roasted herbs, kirsch liqueur, lavender, forest floor and balsam wood. It is an impressively built, concentrated, deep ruby/purple-colored effort that should drink well for 10-15 years. The cellars of this British-owned estate (formerly known as La Glaciere) are on the Route de Roquemaure, on the western fringes of the ancient village of Chateauneuf du Pape. The 2011s mark the third vintage under the new owners, who appear to be going from strength to strength as their 2011s are some of the finest wines of the vintage. Furthermore, their strong 2010s performed even better from bottle than they did last year. After investing considerable funds in this once moribund property, La Celestiere now produces four cuvees.

2010 La Celestiere Chateauneuf-du-Pape Tradition

Winery: La Celestiere
Style: Red Wine
Varietal: Rhone Blend
Region: Rhone
By Josh Raynolds
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Jan/Feb 13
Bright purple. Aromas and flavors of black raspberry and blueberry with spice and floral notes adding complexity. Juicy and focused, with very good finishing clarity and lingering floral and spicecake nuances. Tannins came up with aeration but weren't a match for this wine's energetic fruit. 90 Points
