The dense ruby/purple-colored, full-bodied 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cotes Capelan is an outrageously rich, complex wine exhibiting beautiful creme de cassis, kirsch, licorice, forest floor, and spring flower-like aromas. It is fresh, voluptuous, and opulent in the mouth, but the fresh acids and vibrancy give it exceptional precision as well as a refreshing style despite its weight, richness, and length. This is a superb, young Chateauneuf du Pape from an up-and-coming star of the appellation. Give it 1-3 years of bottle age and drink it over the following two decades. Drink through 2030. (RP)
The 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Cotes Capelan is the top wine from winemaker Stephane Vedeau and is mostly Grenache from a parcel named 'Côtes Capelan'. This sexy, opulent and incredibly perfumed beauty gives up loads of kirsch, incense, licorice and lavender aromas and flavors. It’s unquestionably a big wine, yet it’s remarkable fresh and lively, with good acids, and seamless texture, loads of fruit and a clean finish. It needs an hour in the decant to shows at its best, and easily has another decade of prime drinking.
