A wine that will give Beaucastel’s Hommage a Jacques Perrin cuvee a run for its money, the Mourvèdre-dominated 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape le Tintot is a powerhouse effort that offers incredible notes of beef blood, iodine, seaweed wrapper, smoked meats and layers of ripe fruit. About as full-bodied as they come, with a stacked mid-palate and building, sweet tannin, it’s still a baby and has some upside. (JD)
Dark and lush, but with excellent drive to the espresso, bittersweet cocoa powder, loam and black licorice notes, all backed by dark fig and crushed plum fruit. The dense finish has impressive grip for the vintage, with hints of mesquite and Turkish coffee adding muscle to the finish. Best from 2010 through 2027.
Opaque purple. Pungent dark berry and licorice aromas are complemented by smoked meat and dark chocolate. Youthfully brooding flavors of chewy blackcurrant and bitter cherry stain the palate, with juicy acidity providing verve. Finishes with strong minerality and lingering smokiness. Manages to be both powerful and lithe, but I wouldn't open one of these for a while.
