A blockbuster effort displaying lavish richness as well as extraordinary finesse elegance and freshness the dark ruby/purple-tinged 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Petits Pieds d'Armand was fashioned from ancient vines planted in 1899 in the famed sector known as La Crau. Aged in tank and a few demi-muids it exhibits sumptuous aromas of kirsch liqueur spring flowers licorice the seaweed wrapper used in sushi restaurants called Nori and hints of pepper and spice. Revealing enormous richness purity finesse elegance and impeccable balance this stunning wine is one of the vintage's most compelling examples of ancient vine Grenache made in an unmanipulated style with no make-up. It can be drunk now or cellared for two decades.
