A blend of 80% Grenache and the rest Syrah and Cinsault from 50-year-old vines, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Olivets is a beautiful sleeper of the vintage. This sexy, full-bodied wine possesses a dark plum/purple color, abundant aromas of pepper, lavender, forest floor, and roast beef, a lush, layered style, and 10-12 years of drinkability.
Bright ruby. Spicy, mineral-driven aromas of red berries, spicecake and lavender are alluringly pure and focused. A racy, sweet midweight that offers juicy strawberry and raspberry flavors, with silky tannins adding support. The floral quality echoes through the persistent, spicy, tannin-free finish. This is drinking well right now.
An elegant, stylish version, with mulled red cherry and red currant fruit hanging gracefully through the tea-, sandalwood- and mineral-infused finish. Nice latent grip checks in at the very end. Drink now through 2019.
