The opaque purple-hued 2007 Cotes du Rhone-Villages Terre d'Argile (a blend of 75% Grenache and 25% Mourvedre) reveals a big sweet perfume of creosote licorice blackberries and kirsch. Full-bodied with layers of fruit and a remarkably long finish it can be enjoyed now and over the next 4-6 years. Always one of my favorite stops on my Rhone Valley trips Domaine de la Janasse is run with incredible passion by Christophe Sabon his sister Isabelle and his father who showed up nearly half naked as he was bringing in some white grapes on the torridly hot day I visited. What this family operation has achieved over the last decade is nothing short of remarkable considering the breadth of wines made from their Vin de Pays which are among the finest made in France to their world-class Cotes du Rhones and Chateauneuf du Papes. While this estate is at the top of its game it is not content to rest on the status quo and continues to push the envelope. Their 2008s are among the finest wines of the vintage and as the following tasting notes and scores indicate their 2007s are out of this world. The 2008 reds are surprisingly strong across the board at Domaine de la Janasse. There is no Cotes du Rhone Les Garrigues or Chateauneuf du Pape Chaupin in this vintage but the other cuvees are all noteworthy. 2007 is the greatest vintage I have ever tasted of Domaine de la Janasse â_" and that's says something given the amazing wines produced here in 1998 1999 2000 2001 2003 2005 and 2006.

Very inviting with lush blueberry fig sauce and blackberry fruit aromas and flavors backed by alluring spice and black tea notes. The long round juicy finish is stylish as well. Drink now through 2010. 3333 cases made. -JM
