2010 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge, Domaine des Sénéchaux

Chateauneuf-du-Pape Rouge, Domaine des Senechaux
The blend in the 2010 is Grenache (55%), Syrah ( 24%) Mourvedre ( 20%) and whatever percentage is left is made up of Cinsault and Vaccarese. Ripe exuberant strawberry fruit is evidenced as always, but now there is more depth, with notes of sousbois and bitter chocolate form the Mourvèdre lending a pleasing weight to the back palate.
Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer, February 2012

The eponymous old men continue to adorn the label, redolent of the Burgers of Calais, patient and civilized. Our patience with Sénéchaux has paid enormous dividends over recent years under the stewardship of the Cazes of Lynch Bages. Winemaker Bernard Tranchecoste bemoans the short harvest, but this can partly be attributed to the vendanges vertes in the vineyard, an additional qualitative statement after coulure severely reduced the Grenache crop earlier in the season.

Blackish ruby. Sweetness and some really smooth interest here. Very ambitious in modern idiom. Quite dramatic. Though the fruit seems to have been picked quite late.

Another strong effort, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape exhibits a deeper ruby/purple color as well as a richer, more concentrated core of black fruits, good acidity, and hints of Provencal herbs as well as forest floor. It should turn out to be at least as impressive as the 2009, and last for 12-15+ years.
