With no Reserve bottling in the vintage, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape incorporates all of the top plots of the estate. An incredible wine that’s always performed brilliantly any time I’ve opened a bottle, it gives up layered, ripe aromas and flavors of black raspberry, crushed violets, black licorice and graphite (the wine see only very old foudre and no new oak? ever) to go with a voluptuous, concentrated and structured personality. While there’s no shortage of tannin here, they’re sweet, polished and integrated. Give it another year or two and drink it over the following decade. - Jeb Dunnuck

Very ripe but focused and pure with a gorgeous core of crushed plum pastis and raspberry ganache notes stitched together with long velvety tannins. Spice fruitcake and melted licorice notes echo through the superlong...

17.5/20 Very, very dark crimson. Savoury. Real vibrancy and savour. Still lots of tannin.

The core is opaque the color deep and dark. This is an incredible wine which walks the tightrope of full extraction while maintaining a sense of structure and avoiding a tannic presence or jamminess. Flavors of dark fruit... The core is opaque the color deep and dark. This is an incredible wine which walks the tightrope of full extraction while maintaining a sense of structure and avoiding a tannic presence or jamminess. Flavors of dark fruit and kirsch are intertwined with the appropriate acidity to keep the palate fresh. The finish is structured a touch tangy and firm while preserving softness as fruit wraps around the tannins in the back of the palate. Owner Jean-Paul Daumen thinks this vintage is "too accessible" yet a few years in the cellar would do wonders with peak maturity arriving in 14-18 years.
