Robert Parker describes vintage 2010 this way:
"The super-concentrated, superb 2010 Vinsobres les Hauts de Julien has off-the-charts richness. Floral notes intermixed with blueberry, blackberry, boysenberry, licorice, truffle and camphor are all present in this superb wine, with is inky bluish/purple to the rim, extremely full-bodied, with great acid and sweet but abundant tannin. This is a wine for patient connoisseurs/partisans of southern Rhône wines. Forget it for 4-5 years and drink it over the following two decades." 93/100.
