The finest tradition cuvee yet made the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape (70% Grenache 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre aged in foudre and concrete tanks) possesses a deep ruby/purple-tinged color as well as a bouquet of black currants black cherries garrigue pepper and lavender. It is a full-bodied ripe exceptionally elegant pure wine to drink now or cellar for 12-15 years.Shrewd connoisseurs of Chateauneuf du Pape should be paying attention to what is taking place at La Roquete. This property was acquired by the Brunier family (who also own Vieux Telegraphe) in the mid-eighties and over the last 4-5 years they have made successful efforts to upgrade the quality dramatically.

Pungent aromas of blackberry preserves and plum with licorice and tobacco notes adding complexity. Showing a more serious personality than it did from barrel offering weighty dark fruit flavors and a velvety texture. Tannins build with air and add grip to the long smoky finish. This is acting like a 2005 right now.
