Full-bodied and ripe, with a juicy core of plum, boysenberry and fig fruit backed by cocoa, espresso and black licorice notes. A nice graphite edge helps lends just enough definition on the finish. A textbook expression of the vintage.
The 2007 traditional Chateauneuf du Pape is a beauty -- deep ruby/purple in color with a classic nose of jammy black cherries and black currants intermixed with lavender, spice box, fruit cake, and pepper. It is a medium to full-bodied wine with silky tannins, an alluring texture, and terrific purity and length. Drink it over the next decade. The is one of the oldest estates in Chateauneuf du Pape. It was sold at the turn of the century to the large negociant Ogier, and contrary to the idea that bigger is not better, Ogier has actually taken the wines back to their former glory of 30 to 40 years ago. The estate, encompassing 55 acres, produces two cuvees of red wine, their traditional blend of 80% Grenache and the rest the other authorized red varietals such as Syrah, Mourvedre, and Cinsault
