Clos St Jean, Chateauneuf Du Pape Dues Ex Machina
Chateauneuf du Pape, Rhone, France
(Priced at per bottle)
Deeper and richer, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Deus ex Machina has been nothing short of perfection on the 3-4 times I ve been lucky enough to try it. Muscular and powerful, with a serious, full-bodied profile, it gives up incredible aromas and flavors of creme de cassis, licorice, graphite, beef blood and loamy earth. Like most 2010s at this stage, it s backwards and dense, and needs to be forgotten for another couple of years. This beauty will have 2-3 decades of overall longevity.
