The biggest surprise in these tastings was the phenomenal performance of the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Quet. Normally a blend of 65% Grenache and 35% Mourvedre the 2007's composition changed to 80% Grenache (all aged in tank) and 20% Mourvedre (aged in small oak barrels.) This wine literally blew me away. Since this is a PG-rated publication I can not print my original comments upon tasting this wine. Let's just say the exquisite aromatics were astounding. They include creme de cassis lavender roasted meats new saddle leather and spice box. The phenomenal aromatics were matched by equally compelling flavors texture and purity. Offering a thrill a second this full-bodied wine exhibits awesome concentration impeccable balance and a finish that lasts nearly 60 seconds. I had a difficult time spitting out this amazing elixir and I kept returning to it during the course of the morning tasting just to confirm my initial impression. The good news is about 500 cases were produced. It should drink well for two decades or more.Ever since I began following this small domaine (22 acres) fifteen years ago the quality of their wines has increased with every top vintage. The brother and sister team of Daniel and Christine Chaussy is responsible for the wine. They introduced the Cuvee du Quet a decade ago it comes from a specific parcel of old vines. Their newest offering is the 100% old vine Mourvedre called Le Tintot. Readers may remember my enthusiastic notes last year and every 2007 I tasted this year especially the perfect Cuvee du Quet and the traditional cuvee performed dramatically better than anticipated.
