Clos St. Jean Chateauneuf du Pape Deus Ex Machina 2010, 1.5L (WA100) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Clos St. Jean Chateauneuf du Pape Deus Ex Machina

1.5L

Vintage: 2010
Region: France--Rhone--Chateauneuf du Pape
Appellation: Chateauneuf du Pape

WA100
Rated 100 points by the Wine Advocate: `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.?` -- Jeb Dunnuck in the August 2014 issue of the Wine AdvocateMore information about this producer: `Since taking control of the estate in 2002, and bringing on board rock-star consultant Philippe Cambie, the Maurel brothers have been knocking it out of the park in literally every vintage. 2004? Gorgeous wines and easily at the top in a recent retrospective. The cooler, rainy 2008? Beautiful ripeness and texture, and again, at the top of the hierarchy. 2011 is the same story, and it`s amazing what this team has accomplished in all of their vintages. Looking at this retrospective, we went through all of their cuvees going back to 2003. Unfortunately, there`s no new information here, and this tasting simply confirmed what myself and Robert Parker have been saying for some time now: Clos Saint Jean is at the top of their game and producing some of the most singular, hedonistic and brilliant wines in the world. One of the greatest cuvees on earth, the Maurel brothers` Sanctus Sanctorum is 100% Grenache that comes from a single plot of vines in the La Crau lieu-dit. Aged all in demi-muid, it`s been one of the greatest wines I`ve ever tasted - every time I`ve tasted it. All three of these were sheer perfection on this occasion, yet each has its own unique profile.`
