Up there with the 2010 and flirting with perfection, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape les Grenaches de Pierre is about as incredible an expression of old vine Grenache as you can find. Still deep ruby colored, it offers up an insane bouquet of kirsch, cassis, exotic flowers, pepper, garrigue and licorice that flows seamlessly to a full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, yet layered and elegant profile on the palate. It’s one of those rare wines that carries phenomenal richness, yet never seems heavy, cumbersome or puts a foot wrong. Drink it anytime over the coming decade. - Jeb Dunnuck

The palate is stunning with full body a precise silky texture perfect balance and a long finish where ripe fine grain tannins firm things up. One of the top wines of the vintage and this should age effortlessly for 20+ years!

Silky and deceptively ripe with stylish incense black tea and raspberry hints up front that turn darker and denser through the finish where fig paste and graphite notes fill in. The long finish really gains steam as it moves along letting shiso leaf and mineral notes play out. Very stylish. Best from 2010 through 2025. 361 cases made. -JM

Ripe black raspberry and cherry aromas are complemented by sexy floral and incense notes with hints of baking spices and minerals adding lift. Juicy sweet and focused offering vivid red fruit flavors and a strong undercurrent of tangy minerality. Packs serious punch but there's also a pinot-like elegance to this wine that's intriguing. The pliant lush finish echoes the red fruit and spice notes and refuses to let go of the palate. -JR
