The 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Origines (50% Grenache 30% Mourvedre and 20% Syrah aged in small new oak barrels) is somewhat of an anomaly with such an amount of new oak but it never seems to show given the wine-s... The 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Origines (50% Grenache 30% Mourvedre and 20% Syrah aged in small new oak barrels) is somewhat of an anomaly with such an amount of new oak but it never seems to show given the wine-s concentration and richness. This may be the estate-s finest example of this cuvee which generally represents 1200-1500 cases all from their holdings in the northern sector of the appellation. A saturated purple color is accompanied by aromas of smoke camphor creme de cassis licorice and blueberries amazing concentration a full-bodied texture and a stunningly long finish. The tannins are present but silky and the vintage-s freshness and vibrant fruit are evident. Powerful and loaded with substance but at the same time endearingly elegant and ethereal it will benefit from another 2-3 years of bottle age and should drink well for 15+.

Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, August 2009
Solid with a mix of red and black currant fruit held together with notes of pastis licorice and violet. A good dash of grip on the finish keeps this honest. Opens nicely in the glass. Drink now through 2019. 3000 cases made.
