External Reviews for Chateauneuf du Pape Dom Bosquet des Papes Frankrijk Cotes du Rhone Aoc Rood Syrah Grenache Mourvèdre Cinsault
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 12ndash;15 years.
Wine Advocate ReviewThe 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape exhibits plenty of licorice, pepper, cherries, and some plum-like fruit with hints of Asian spice and incense. The wine is medium-bodied, fresh, and lively with some light tannins. Give it 1-2 years of bottle age, and drink it over the following 10-12 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 12ndash;14 years of aging potential ahead of it.
