A beautiful wine that should drink superbly for 15 years this sensational 2007 was made from a tiny 26 hectoliters per hectare and is a blend of 78% Merlot and 22% Cabernet Franc that achieved nearly 13.8% natural alcohol. The wonder duo of Nicolas Thienpont and Stephane Derenoncourt hit pay dirt with this beauty which may turn out to be a better balanced wine than their 2009. This opulent sexy wine exhibits a dense ruby/plum/purple color a full-bodied mouthfeel sweet tannins and lots of forest floor black currant ripe cherry and mountain flora characteristics. Filled with power substance and elegance it should be consumed over the next 15 years.

Aromas of black fruits coffee and mocha with a whiff of cherry liqueur. Then sweet round and soft with noteworthy depth to the black fruit mineral and licorice flavors. Finishes sweet and long with ripe suave tannins and very good breadth. Serious complex stylish wine with plenty of shape and energy.

Color is a rich red garnet with full intensity. Clean and pure the brett is almost completely gone. Now I can really get behind this wine as all the effort of Stephen Derenoncourt has paid off well. Nice creamy nose of super cassis de Dijon. Pleasing crème de cassis peaks with black raspberry fruit in the mid-palate wrapped in precise ripe tannins - a big wine. Derenoncourt consults.

Aromas of incense boysenberry kirsch and black currant surround a core of vanilla and sweet oak. Nice attack on the mid-palate with with a core of red fruit sweet tannin and anise. A little cocoa and red currant show nicely towards the finish which is primarily defined by red cherry and moderate wood tannins. Nicely balanced for such an extracted wine and excellent for the vintage.
