Thought I would start a thread to see what 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape's everyone is buying.

2010 gave us an incredible vintage with a lot of promising CdP's. Which producer's have you all been stocking up on?

So far, I have bought some of the following:
2010 Domaine de la Charbonnière Châteauneuf-du-Pape
2010 Domaine de la Charbonnière Cuvée Vieilles Vignes
2010 Domaine de la Charbonnière Cuvée Spéciale Les Hautes Brusquières
2010 Domaine de Marcoux
2010 Beaucastel (waiting on delivery)
2010 Domaine de la Mordoree Cuvee La Reine des Bois
2010 Domaine de Cristia Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes

So far I've bought:

Usseglio - Cuvée de mon Aïeul
Janasse - Cuvée Chaupin
Pégaü - Cuvée Réservée

I'll probably buy some Beaucastel and some Janasse VV as well. It's my son's birth year and there's going to be a lot of Rhone in my cellar for him.


Looking forward to those mags of '08 Salon.

Anybody tried the Marcoux VV? Heard good things about it, but the price is pretty steep.

There is only one retailer that carries it up here and they have it for $165. I don't have the budget for a six-pack, but hoping to maybe snag a bottle or two.

I would normally be all over this, and I may end up doing that, but I've got this bug for red burgundy now and '10 was a good vintage there also. Decisions, decisions.

I had one bottle of the 1998 vintage which we opened at a restaurant on a Friday evening last spring. It absolutely reeked of barnyard and was completely undrinkable. It sat in a decanter all night long and never became approachable. I poured the wine back in the bottle and took it home, and enjoyed a very nice wine 2 days later after the aromas of rotting vegetation and animal poop blew off.

Moral of the story is that Marcoux is a very traditional producer and you might have to make some allowances for that. Banana

Despite promising myself that I was going to resist buying any more young wines, I found a couple 2010 Rhones that were just too hard to turn away:

- Beaurenard Boisrenard X12
- Donjon X5

That will be it.

Jonanator, the Boisrenard is powerful, with superb, delicious fruit.

The 2010 is just starting to arrive in the US, so no, I have not tasted it yet.

So, basically, for the most part, y'all buying the same wines as previous CdP vintages. Same old. Anything new?

I cannot believe the power Parker has on wine. My Bosquet Des Papes Chante le Merle VV has doubled in value!

This is my first experience of RP's affect on the wine I buy.

Looking forward to drinking this in 10+ years

I picked up a case of Beaucastel and almost 2 cases of the Donjon. I am still waiting for the Telegraphe and I passed on the Clos des Pape because it was just too much money at this point in my collecting life. I'll keep my eyes peeled for others that make their way into BC.

Picked up a bottle of the Pegau Reservee today & drinking tonight...excellent but I think I prefer the 2009. The '10 is no slouch though- will end up with both in the cellar for sure.

Has anyone tried the Chante le Merle? Worth the hype? or is it another parker dud?
