95 points "More backward and concentrated, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape exhibits a dark ruby/purple color as well as dense, black raspberry, black currant, garrigue, licorice and lavender characteristics. Full-bodied with undeniable elegance, minerality and precision, it needs 2-3 years of cellaring and should keep well for 15-20....95+" IWC 02/12 -- 93pts(85% grenache and 5% each of syrah, mourvedre and vaccarese, aged in concrete): Youthful purple. Deeply pitched aromas of raspberry, boysenberry, Indian spices and incense, plus a strong note of candied lavender. Lush, creamy red and blue fruit flavors are strikingly fresh, with a zesty mineral spine adding vivacity. Deep but surprisingly lithe, finishing with strong punch, clarity and spicy persistence" Rhone Ranger -- 97pts My favorite vintage of this wine to date, the absolutely brilliant 2010 Domaine Charvin Châteauneuf-du-Pape exudes class and purity on both the nose and palate. It has knockout aromatics of sweet red and black fruits, lavender, wild herbs, and searing minerality that flow to a full-bodied, powerful, and concentrated 2010 that has awesome density and richness, yet also stays fresh, ethereal, and light on the palate. It?s winner, yet it needs 4-6 years of bottle age to integrate its tannin; It will thrill for over two decades RR 10/12" Best 2016-2030

95 points "92-95 points : "Bright ruby. A strikingly complex bouquet of red and dark berries, kirsch, Asian spices and garrigue Very pure, fresh raspberry and blackberry flavors supported by a sexy undercurrent of tangy minerals. A candied floral quality builds on the finish, which refuses to let go. Impresses with elegance and clarity rather than brute force." (02/09) "

94 points "Shows the fresh herb, tobacco and black cherry profile of the vintage, with an undertow of briar and tobacco. The long, sappy finish lets fresh acidity carry the day. This should age nicely, as there's nice dark fruit in reserve as well. Best from 2010 through 2029. 94pts James Molesworth, September 30, 2009 Charvin’s 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape has turned out to be one of the vintage’s top efforts. Lovely sweet notes of glove leather, roasted meats, spice box, ground pepper, kirsch, and raspberries are present in this deep, full-bodied 2006. More evolved than the 2007, with copious concentration, elegance, and a Burgundy grand cru-like complexity as well as freshness, it should be enjoyed over the next 12-15+ years. 93 pts Robert Parker, October 2008." Best 2010-2029
