The 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee (of which I was lucky to find a magnum on a Paris bistro's wine list a week after my tasting at the estate) is a brilliant effort that ranks alongside the colossal 2003 Cuvee Reservee. A blend of approximately 85% Grenache 8-9% Syrah and the rest Mourvedre and other varietals from 50-100+ year old vines aged in foudre it exhibits a dense plum/purple color along with a big sweet bouquet of beef blood grilled herbs barbecue smoke lavender sweet cassis and kirsch and a hint of Asian soy. The wine possesses a fabulous texture a full-bodied mouthfeel and a seamless integration of tannin acidity and alcohol. Certainly the alcohol level is pushing 16% in this wine. With extraordinary texture and unctuosity this remarkable effort should drink well for 20+ years yet be very appealing in its youth given the glycerin velvety texture and remarkable complexity. -Robert Parker

This packs it all together with the ripe plum sauce braised fig and currant paste notes of the vintage matched with invigorating hoisin sauce brick dust and grilled beef notes.

This packs it all together with the ripe plum sauce braised fig and currant paste notes of the vintage matched with invigorating hoisin sauce brick dust and grilled beef notes. The long finish drips with fruit but stays framed by a wild edge that keeps this firmly planted in terroir. Best from 2011 through 2031. 700 cases imported. -JM

($85-$100) Opaque ruby. The highly perfumed nose offers an exotic array of red and dark berries spicecake and potpourri with hints of smoky herbs and olive adding complexity.

The highly perfumed nose offers an exotic array of red and dark berries spicecake and potpourri with hints of smoky herbs and olive adding complexity. Juicy and fresh for a wine that's over 15% alcohol offering sweet raspberry and cherry flavors framed by silky tannins. Very suave and open-knit today with excellent finishing clarity and smoky persistence. 94 points
