The Remarkable 98-Point Chateauneuf Cornelia Constanza 2010‏

Solitude COnstanza Header

Near perfect score for Domaine de la Solitude's Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee Cornelia Constanza 2010 

 

We all know that 2010 is a tremendous vintage in the Southern Rhone. Perfectly ripe grapes produced wines of balance and style with depth and concentration. The acid balance is exceptional and this will ensure the wines enjoy a long life.

 

Today we present the scarce Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee Cornelia Constanza - produced from 100 year old Grenache from La Crau (home of Vieux Telegraphe). This tremendous wine has been rated 98 Points by Jeb Dunnuck (the Rhone Report), one of the best reviewers of southern Rhone wines.

 

I have consumed this wine on quite a few occasions and it never fails to excite with its depth of flavour, complexity and style. It is a stunning wine and I would go as far to say that it is my favourite Chaeauneuf in our portfolio.

Solitude Cornelia Constanza Label 100% Grenache from 100+ year old vines. Only around 3,000 bottles are produced and only in top years. First produced in 2005.

 

Rhone Report: Even better and one spectacular example of old vine Grenache, the 2010 Cuvée Cornelia Constanza is 100% Grenache and comes from 90+ year old vines and the sandy soil of the famed La Crau lieu-dit. Overflowing with kirsch liqueur, wild strawberry, ground pepper, herbs de Provence, licorice, and garrigue, this is a no holds bar, thrill ride of a wine that is full-bodied, decadently textured, and perfectly balanced. Layered, multi-dimensional, and seamless, yet with gorgeous underlying structure and concentration, this might be a love it or leave it wine for most people, yet it offers a level of pure Grenache hedonism that just cannot be found anywhere else. I think it will age beautifully, yet do not be afraid to open bottle early either as it a knockout bottle of wine now. 98 Points
