The finest bottle I’ve had of the 2007 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Roussanne Vieilles Vignes, this incredible white is just about as good as it gets. Still light gold in color with a huge nose of buttered orchard fruits, brioche, caramelized nut and orange marmalade, it packs serious amounts of richness and depth on the palate, yet stays lively, fresh, pure and balanced. The Montrachet of the Rhône Valley, don’t miss a chance to try this wine.
The 2007 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Vieilles Vignes (100% Roussanne) could be called the 'Montrachet of southern France.' A wine of great intensity, it boasts thrilling aromas of orange marmalade, nectarine liqueur, honeysuckle, peaches, and apricots. Stunningly rich with full body, terrific acidity, and a finish that lasts 45+ seconds, this is an amazing achievement. It should drink well for 7-8 years, shut down or become oxidized, then, hopefully, re-emerge at around age 12-15, and drink in a completely different fashion for several decades thereafter. (RP)
This is gorgeous, with a creamy mouthfeel that carries lush papaya, green and yellow apple, chamomile, melon and heather honey notes through the long, salted butter-tinged finish. There's great underlying minerality. Superlong. (JM)
Pale yellow-gold. Intense, mineral-accented orchard and pit fruit aromas are complemented by anise, honeysuckle and smoky mineral qualities. Luscious pear and peach nectar flavors become nervier with air, displaying orange peel and baking spice character. The finish is strikingly pure and persistent, with lingering floral and mineral qualities. Put this one away for at least another ten years. (ST)
Rich aromas of lemon and apricot. Concentrated and long but still very fresh with a mineral streak underneath the weight. So complete. Lower acidity than the Ch de Beaucastel Blanc 2007 more more marked minerality increases the freshness. 18.5/20 Points (JH)
