Bosquet des Papes "Tradition" Châteauneuf-du-Pape Pre-Arrival 2007
92 points Rhone Report: A traditional, structured wine, the 2007 Bosquet des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape offers up complex aromatics of dark, mineral laced fruit, garrigue, herbs and crushed stone. The palate shows nice density to go with a clean, precise and structured character. This improved in the glass and is an excellent wine to drink over the coming 10 to 12 years. (Aug 2009)
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
External Reviews for Bosquet des Papes "Tradition" Châteauneuf-du-Pape Pre-Arrival
The 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape A La Gloire de Mon Grandpere is a blend of 98% Grenache and 2% Cinsault and other varieties (from 60- to 80-year-old vines), explosive aromas of plums, licorice, figs, black cherries, raspberries, and loamy, resiny notes jump from the glass. Full-bodied with tremendous seductive powers in its level of glycerin and rich, broad, expansive fruit, it is a wine without make-up so to speak since it is aged in old wood foudres as well as tanks and a handful of demi-muids. Drink this beautifully textured, sumptuous 2007 over the next 12-15 years.
As for the 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape a la Gloire de Mon Grandpere, this wine has a classic Grenache nose of kirsch liqueur, licorice, spice box, and some resiny notes. It is deep, rich, moderately ruby in color, but has loads of glycerin and, I suspect, the highest alcohol level of this trio. It should be the easiest to drink young, yet seemingly has 12-14 years of aging potential ahead of it.
