The 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Pierres Dorees is composed of 65% Grenache 20% Mourvedre and 15% Syrah that spends time in used 1- to 4-year-old Burgundy barrels. Only 10% of the blend is aged in steel. It also includes a lot of stems during fermentation but that is certainly not noticeable in either the aromas or flavors. Its dense purple color is followed by a sweet floral-dominated nose of incense soy licorice black fruits meat juices and bouquet garni. Deep full-bodied and powerful as well as silky-textured layered and long this beautiful wine should evolve for 10-15 years.The stars in Patrick Lesec's porfolio are the superb Chateauneuf du Pape cuvees he fashions but there are also some stunning bargains for shrewd consumers. By the way Lesec chose not to produce any Chateauneuf du Papes or Gigondas in 2008.

Showing a dark ruby-red in the glass this polished Chateauneuf de Pape features a perfumed floral nose of candied red raspberry and strawberry alongside notes of licorice and herbs. Medium-bodied on the palate framed by chalky tannins and bright acidity this Chateauneuf finishes long and with lingering consistent flavors that echo the nose and palate.
