The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Trois Sources comes from the estate’s vineyards planted in sandy soils. About 10,000 bottles have been produced. One of the great wines of the vintage, this unbelievable Chateauneuf is still extremely young and primary. Its opaque purple color is followed by scents of ink, acacia flowers, blueberries, black raspberries and blackberries. While full-bodied, extremely concentrated and massive, the wine is totally harmonious with beautifully integrated acidity, tannin and alcohol (which is no doubt in excess of 16%). Give this 2010 five more years of cellaring and drink it over the following 20–25 years.

Bright purple. Explosive aromas of dark berry liqueur, potpourri, candied licorice and sandalwood. Lush and expansive, offering sweet blackberry and blueberry flavors and an exotic floral pastille nuance. Closes sappy, sweet and impressively long, with intense lavender and dark berry flavors and harmonious, framing tannins.

Bright purple. An intensely perfumed nose shows raspberry preserves, incense and Asian spices, with a strong mineral overtone. Sweet, sappy and palate-staining, with impressive depth and focus to its red fruit and floral pastille flavors. Becomes spicier with air and finishes with impressive energy and length. Daumen told me that this wine clocks in at 15.5% alcohol but I’d have never guessed it.
