My notes on the dense ruby/purple-colored 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Vieilles Vignes (95% Grenache and 5% Mourvedre from 80-year-old vines) begin with the words "serious stuff." Deep rich and full-bodied with abundant notes of forest floor truffles earth kirsch raspberries and black currants this powerful layered multidimensional long ageworthy wine should drink well between 2012-2028. The Maret family runs this impeccably managed estate that has nearly 45 acres of vineyards primarily in the northeast sector of the appellation. They also have a large holding on the high plateau in the northern tier of Chateauneuf du Pape from which they produce their superb Les Hautes Brusquieres from a lieux-dit of the same name. Only two 2008s were made. All of the 2007s performed better out of bottle than they did last year.

Best from 2010 through... A round fresh style with mouthwatering floral red licorice red cherry and plum notes all wrapped up by nice racy acidity.

Expressive raspberry and cherry-scented bouquet is complicated by notes of baking spices and wilted rose. Finely etched red fruit flavors gain depth with air and take a turn to blacker raspberry with a zesty note of white pepper emerging on the back. Already very tasty but has the balance to age. -Josh Raynolds
