Deep ruby. Sexy aromas of raspberry and blackberry preserves, potpourri and Asian spices. Weighty but fresh, with sweet dark berry flavors and impressive mineral lift. This has become more energetic since bottling and shows a very sexy, open-knit personality; I slightly underestimated it last year. The finish is juicy, focused and impressively persistent.
Ripe and seamless, with a gorgeous mouthfeel to the raspberry, mulled spice, crushed currant and melted licorice notes. Long and fleshy, with a buried minerality extending the finish. Grenache and Syrah. Drink now through 2025.
I find the 2007 vintage to be one of the most distinctive vintages in the past two decades, and Cristia's 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape has the classic incense, lavender, flowers and spice characteristics of the vintage in spades. Full-bodied, decadent, layered and sexy, it's one seriously hedonistic wine that has no hard edges, a full, ripe mid-palate and a great finish (JD).
