Châteauneuf du Pape Cristia Domaine de Cristia 2007
Tested from a preservation machine. Balanced nose of perfumed fruit with tart and herbal notes. Clean, elegant, balanced, well-integrated deep somewhat smoky fruit (strawberry, black cherry, raspberry, blackberry, detectable in varying proportions) that leans to the savory and is joined by slightly bitter nut oil, licorice, stone, thyme, and tarragon. On the finish everything from the palate fades together in good balance, very nice. Dry. Body medium plus, acid medium, tannin medium plus. I like these kind of wines, and they hold up vacu-corked in the fridge for several days, often peaking on day 3.
