Wine of the Week: Jean Royer Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvée Tradition 2010

June 5th, 2013

Screen shot 2013-06-05 at 4.02.34 PMWhen you find the right Chateauneuf du Pape, there is no turning back.  Jean Royer’s CDP Cuvée Tradition 2010 is a classic, elegant, aromatic blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mouvedre and Cinsault.  The nose offers plum, cedar wood, black cherry, and loamy soil.  On the palate supple dark fruit, spices, and candied flowers are intensely built then rounded out by herb and floral qualities, and a stunningly long finish.   Jean Royer works closely with Oenologist Philippe Cambie, who was named Oenologist of the year by Robert Parker, to produce his wines. Make sure you don’t let this suburb Chateauneuf du Pape pass you by.
