This shows the vintage's powerful core of fig blackberry and mulled currant fruit but shows extra dimensions of roasted chestnut maduro tobacco lavender and iron. The long finish has a hot stone note buried in it. Best from 2012 through 2029. -JM

Made from 90+-year-old vines the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee des Felix (65% Grenache 25% Mourvedre 5% Syrah and 5% other authorized grapes) spent 18 months in small used oak barrels. It reveals beautiful sweet cranberry black cherry black raspberry pepper spice licorice and incense characteristics. Full-bodied as well as elegant with silky tannins and a luscious multilayered texture it can be drunk now or cellared for 12-15+ years. The Versino family is another that immigrated from Italy to Chateauneuf du Pape. The current proprietor Jean-Paul Versino has produced a bevy of beautiful wines from the Bois de Boursan's 40+ acres of vineyards. In 2008 none of the special cuvees were made.

Exotically perfumed bouquet of dark berries flowers and herbs along with a note of olive tapenade. Very rich palate-coating cassis and mulberry flavors are complemented by smoky garrigue and dark chocolate with supple tannins adding support. An emphatically rich wine that stops just this side of over the top finishing with a strong jolt of smoky Indian spices. This is already drinking well.
