The finest effort I have yet tasted from this estate, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape is composed of 65% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre, and 5% Cinsault. Its traditional upbringing included 100% aging in old foudres. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by a big, sweet, juicy kiss of kirsch liqueur intermixed with blacker fruits, raspberries, licorice, camphor, and hints of lavender and incense. The wine exhibits terrific concentration, full-bodied intensity, and a 45-50-second finish. This sensational Chateauneuf du Pape will benefit from another 2-3 years of bottle age, and should drink well for 15-20 years. (RP)
Ruby-red. Pungent aromas of blackcurrant, cherry-cola and incense, with a suave note of rose gaining strength with air. Broad, pliant, gently sweet dark berry flavors become firmer with air and show a complex array of floral and herbal qualities. The finish leaves sweet cassis and cola notes behind, along with a hint of candied flowers. This will be drinking well soon. (JR)
