Clos des Brusquières Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2007
External Reviews for Clos des Brusquières Châteauneuf-du-Pape
I suspect this wine will turn out at least as good as the upper-range score indicates, with lots of old-vine Grenache characteristics clearly present in this soft, attractive, kirsch-dominated wine. It has a deep ruby/plum color, notes of resin interwoven with pepper, garrigue, and plenty of black cherry and strawberry. This is lush, elegant, and almost Burgundian in its focus and overall personality. It should drink nicely for 10ndash;15 years.
The 2005 Clos des Brusquieres has much more to it, but still retains an elegant nose of dried herbs, black cherries, and black currants intermixed with a bit of cedar and resiny pine forest notes. It is a more complete wine, medium to full-bodied, with good depth, ripeness, and a heady finish. It should drink well for 8ndash;10 years. These tend to be traditionally made Chateauneuf du Papes that can be somewhat irregular in quality, but when they hit the mark they are worthwhile old-style Chateauneuf du Papes. Both the current vintages are certainly very good wines, but perhaps not as impressive as they could be for the vintagersquo;s quality.
Bright ruby. Highly pungent bouquet of raspberry preserves, peppery spices, herbs and minerals, along with a smoky undertone. Lush, creamy raspberry and blackberry flavors are complicated by spicy floral and garrigue notes and gain sweetness with air. Seamless and sweet on the finish, which eventually leaves notes of sweet red fruits and spices behind. Therersquo;d be no crime in drinking this alluring wine right now.
91-94 points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: Saturated ruby. Rich red and dark berry liqueur aromas are complicated by white pepper, garrigue and smoky minerals. Refreshing, delineated
The 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape is a solidly constructed, earthy wine with notes of underbrush, pepper, black cherries, and garrigue. It is spicy, medium to full-bodied, and traditionally made. Give it 2ndash;3 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 10ndash;12 years.
Enticing, with pastis and warm fig reduction aromas and flavors leading the way, backed by mulled currant fruit, black tea and plum jam notes. The long finish flaunts the fruit of the vintage, while maintaining its balance. An impressive showing for this domaine. Best from 2010 through 2023. -JM Saturated ruby. Rich red and dark berry liqueur aromas are complicated by white pepper, garrigue and smoky minerals. Refreshing, delineated raspberry and black cherry flavors show impressive depth without excess weight, thanks to fresh mineral snap on the back. There's a pinot noir-like elegance and purity to this wine that's quite alluring. The outstanding 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape exhibits a darker, plum/garnet/ruby hue as well as an evolved, but complex bouquet of kirsch liqueur, lavender, new saddle leather, spice box, and garrigue. It is an unadorned, pure wine with the kirsch/black cherry liqueur character following through across the attack, mid-palate, and finish. Quasi-rustic tannins kick in at the finish, but there is more than sufficient substance to stand up to the wine's structure. Nevertheless, I recommend 1-2 years of bottle age, and consumption over the following 12-15 years. ** Only 21 in Stock **
