Chateauneuf du Pape Domaine de la Chartreuse Frankrijk Grenache Syrah Mourvedre Châteauneuf du Pape Rhône 2003

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

Has a solid core of blackberry, melted licorice and coffee flavors, with hints of briar and currant paste on the mineral- and earth- driven finish. There's solid, latent grip. This fleshes out as it airs. Best from 2010 through 2020.

Château de Saint-Cosme:
Saint Cosme - located north to the village of Gigondas - is the most ancient estate in the region. Lying on the site of a Gallo-Roman villa which very probably already had its own vineyard, the estate's existence in 1416 is attested by a document mentioning the granting by Jean de Chalon, Price of Orange, of "land for the planting of vines on the Saint Cosme slopes."

The 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Exceptionnelle has turned out to be significantly better than I thought last year when I tasted it prior to bottling. The greatest wine Quiot has ever made in my opinion, this wine shows a dense ruby/purple color and a gorgeous nose of camphor, blackberry, kirsch, some roast beef and Provencal herbs. Full-bodied with great intensity, beautiful purity, a multi-dimensional mouthfeel, and a spectacular finish of close to a minute, this is a fabulous effort from Quiot and should drink well for close to two decades.

Very lush and ripe, with plum, fig and raspberry fruit flavors that melt over fine-grained tannins, leaving spice, cocoa, sweet smoke and mineral notes behind on the lengthy finish. Drink now through 2020.
