From the Critics:
- "The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape St.-Georges possesses magnificent fruit in addition to a skyscraper-like mouthfeel, majestic richness, a layered texture, phenomenal purity and a classic style displaying plenty of bouquet garni, licorice, seaweed, cassis and kirsch characteristics. This sensational 2010 is soft enough to be drunk now, but will be even better with 2-3 years of cellaring. It should last for two decades."
"A microscopic estate owned by Coralie Goumarre, Domaine Galevan was established, remarkably, in 1780, but the first estate-bottled wine did not emerge until 1968. I was blown away by these four red wine cuvees, and both of the 2010s have jumped dramatically in score since I tasted them from barrel last year. Coralie Goumarre has consistently made some of the better Cotes du Rhones over recent vintages. Both her 2011s represent sleepers of the vintage." (10/12) -
- "Getting a big "Wow" from me, the spectacular 2010 Domaine Galevan Chateauneuf-du-Pape St. Georges is a blend of 100% Grenache that comes all from 96+ year old vines. One of the top wines of the vintage, it has an incredible bouquet of blackberry liqueur, licorice, assorted flowers, and roasted meats that gives way to a full-bodied, massively built palate that has nothing out of place, a seamless texture, beautiful freshness, and masses of polished tannin emerging on the finish. Taking the better part of a day to open up and even better on day two, this knockout Chateauneuf-du-Pape needs 4-5 years of bottle age, and will totally thrill for 15+ years or more. Don't miss this!" (03/12) -
