DeLille Cellars Grand Ciel Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 / 750 ml.

Item#: 78359

RP9595 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Jun 2013
Tasted from bottle, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Ciel is 100% Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 18 months in 100% new French oak. Full-bodied, powerful and concentrated, it possesses brilliantly rich aromas and flavors of smoked game, black currant, graphite, tobacco and crushed stone-like minerality. More concentrated, backwards and masculine than the 2011, it will require 3–4 years of cellaring and impress for upwards of two decade, minimum. Drink 2017–2030.
ST9494 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Nov/Dec 2013
Dark berries and minerals on the vibrant, sweet nose. Intensely flavored but light on its feet, conveying an impression of serious power without any excess weight. Dark berry fruit flavors are complicated by subtle soil tones and strong graphite minerality. This wonderfully concentrated, seamless wine finishes with noble tannins and outstanding palate-staining persistence. A good bit of this material is declassified into DeLille’s D2 and Four Flags bottlings. Wonderfully suave Washington cabernet for extended cellaring.

SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 30, 2022
Opens with rich and polished black cherry and red currant flavors that are laced with hints of mineral and green olive, taking on structure toward broad-shouldered tannins on the finish. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2023 through 2030. 15,000 cases made. (Tim Fish)
JD9191 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 5/6/2021
Named after the famed D2 road that runs from Bordeaux up through the Médoc, the 2018 D2 checks in as 67% Merlot, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. It has a classy, medium-bodied style offering fine, elegant tannins, a balanced, charming texture, and classic notes of currants, violets, lead pencil, and tobacco. Reminding me of a top Cru Bourgeois, it should keep for a decade. (Jeb Dunnuck)

This merlot-dominant blend is balanced with cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and petit verdot. It’s all dark violets, the floral scents over more reticent and reserved notes of blackberry and dried beef. With air, the palate fills in, the spices issue forth, clove, allspice, cocoa nibs, all lacing dark red fruit flavors with fine dusty tannins. For bo ssam.
JD9393 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 6/4/2013
The more Merlot-dominated 2020 D2 offers a vivid purple/ruby hue as well as beautiful notes of ripe black cherries, tobacco leaf, sandalwood, and spring flowers. I love its purity, and it has terrific mid-palate depth, ripe tannins, and a great finish. The blend is 61% Merlot, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, brought up in 60% new oak. (Jeb Dunnuck)
RP9393 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 11th May 2023
The 2020 D2 Proprietary Red Wine was made from 61% Merlot, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. The nose is as brilliant as always, with focused, dark red fruits, hints of black cherry skin and oak essence that sways out of the glass. Full-bodied and mineral tensioned, the palate offers fine-grained tannins with succulent healthy fruit flavors before ending with a fresh, food-friendly finish. At these prices, buy the entire case. About 108,000 bottles were filled after the wine rested in 68% new French oak for 20 months. Bravo! (Anthony Mueller)

Ripe and fruity nose of mulberries and blueberries with violets and candied orange peel. Medium-bodied, vibrant and succulent, with crunchy tannins and an expressive, flavorful finish. Drink now. (James Suckling)
SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Feb 6, 2023
Well-framed and precise, with handsomely layered blackberry, tobacco and black olive flavors that build tension toward medium-grained tannins. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2030. 9,800 cases made. (Tim Fish)
