" Made from an identical blend, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape is a hedonistic Chateauneuf du Pape fruit bomb. Super-rich with layers of glycerin and fruit, this full-bodied classic smells like a Provencal open-air fruit and vegetable market. Loaded with slightly blacker fruits than its 2011 counterpart, there are also hints of charcuterie, spice box, cedar and Christmas fruitcake in this full-throttle, rich, concentrated wine. Drink it over the next 12-15+ years.

This nearly 65-acre estate is owned by the famous and much loved Bordeaux proprietor, Jean-Michel Cazes. To say that he and his family have done a terrific job improving the quality at this estate is an understatement as it has become one of the “go to” wines of the appellation since Cazes purchased the property in late 2006. Their vineyard holdings are located in several top terroirs, particularly Le Grand Pierre, Les Reves and Bois Senechaux. "

Domaine des Senechaux

View all from Domaine des Senechaux
Domaine des SenechauxThe Domaine des Sénéchaux counts itself amongst the oldest vineyards in Castro Novo, the birthplace of the wines of Pape and the creation of "appellations d'origine contrôlées." It lies in the heart of the mythical Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation and dates back to the XIV century. It owes its name to the domaine's key vineyards in the Bois Sénéchaux area.

The Cazes family, owners of Château Lynch-Bages in Pauillac, purchased the Domaine des Sénéchaux in 2006. With energy and dedication, the Cazes family have pursued the hard work carried out by Bernard Tranchecoste since 1998. Following significant renovation works on the vineyard, particular attention was paid to the Grenache old vines which attest to the Domaine's longevity. The estate produces robust reds and fleshy, aromatic whites that reflect the rich characters of their respective terroirs.
