93-96 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January/February 2009

Inky ruby. The nose offers a highly complex, wild array of dark berry and floral scents, along with anise, herbs and smoky minerals. Utterly stains the palate with deep black and blue fruit flavors complemented by strong notes of lavender pastille and tobacco. Tannins come up with air but the fruit seems to suck them up. Finishes with a strong wallop of luscious blueberry and mocha and outstanding persistence. This looks to be one of the best wines of this superb vintage.

Wine as it should be

This wine is addictive. I enjoy every sip and when the glass is empty I pour more, I can't stop drinking it! Soft beginning leads to rich black fruit middle with earthy, smoky flavors. The finish is dry and satisfying.
Fabulous!!!!!!!!!!!

This is undoubtedly one of the best Chateauneuf du Pape I have ever tasted. Clearly a 97+ on a 100 point scale. When it arrived, my wife wanted to try one as Chateauneuf du Pape is her favorite wine, so we did. We liked it so much we drank another that night. Luscious fruit with nice subtle complexity and a very looonnngggg finish. If the remainder of the 2007 Chateauneuf du Papes are remotely close, I will need to buy another or a much larger cellar. I am cellaring the remainder to see how a little age will do. I wish I could have purchased a case and am looking. A steal at $79.99. It cannot be found anywhere I can buy it for that price.

About Chateauneuf du Pape

The Rhone's Chateauneuf du Pape has been one of the hottest categories of the new millennium in the American market, thanks in equal part to the nearly candied ripeness and full-bodied, chewy texture of these wines and to an unprecedented string of four consecutive very good to outstanding vintages between 1998 and 2001.
