Tasting notes

Still youthful and not yet fully mature, the 2007 Châteauneuf du Pape (which includes all the grapes that would normally have gone into the declassified Cuvee Cadettes) is full-bodied and impeccably balanced, with a fresh, focused bouquet of cassis, licorice and charred meats. This cuvee always ages beautifully, and this is one of the more fresh, lively and focused 2007s out there--and it still has present tannin. It's certainly enjoyable today but should be even better with a year or two of additional cellaring.

Aged 40% in wood foudres and 60% in barrel, a blend of 47% Grenache, 31% Syrah, and 22% Mourvedre, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape has a deep ruby/purple color and a wonderfully sweet nose of blackberry fruit, lavender, licorice, and a touch of earth as well a hint of truffle. It is ripe, medium to full-bodied, and very much in keeping with the style of the vintage. Powerful and...

...substantial in size, but with terrific acidity, freshness, and length, it will need at least 2-3 years of cellaring after release and should easily age for at least two decades. These two wines demonstrate the total contrast in styles between the vintages. The 2006 is spicier, slightly herbal, but full, and 2007 is super-deep, multi-layered, but with more black fruits and less spice, at least at this stage of their development.
