Robert Parker

The dense purple 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve Auguste Favier (85% Grenache and 15% Cinsault and Syrah) looks like blood of the grape. Exhibiting notes of roasted meats, spice box, licorice, bouquet garni, blackberry and cassis fruit, it is fragrant with a hint of lead pencil shavings as well. With moderately high tannins as well as good acidity, this wine will need 5-6 years of bottle age and last for 25 or more years. 93-95 points
