My favorite of the three single-vineyard releases, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape les Hautes Brusquieres Cuvee Speciale is a blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah that comes from the Brusquières parcel located in the northern part of the appellation. This full-bodied, ripe, sexy 2007 is loaded with notions of black cherries, black currants, licorice and roasted herbs. It has the most texture and richness in the lineup and is drinking spectacularly well today, and it will easily keep for another 10-15 years. (JD)
(60% grenache and 40% syrah) Vivid red. Bright, expressive bouquet of raspberry, blackcurrant, lavender and white pepper, plus a smoky Indian spice quality. Deep but impressively energetic red and dark berry flavors pick up notes of chewing tobacco and minerals with air. The finish repeats the red fruit and spice notes and lingers with impressive clarity and persistence. This is really lively for an example with so much syrah in the blend. (JR)
Combines enticing plum, raspberry and blackberry fruit with black tea, tobacco, mineral and sandalwood notes. The long, fine-grained finish lets everything hang together nicely. Should blossom in the cellar. Drink now through 2027. (JM)
