Clos des Papes Chateauneuf-du-Pape 3 2012

Member Review by Eddie Newhill:

I've now had two bottles of the 07 one with friends in Amsterdam and one here in CT again with friends. The wine is great, needs some time to open up, and is big. I think some more time (at least 3 years) will benefit this wine greatly, I am looking forward to tasting another from cellar then!!

After tasting the 2006 I was wondering how the 2007 could match it. Well Vincent Avril asked me how much time I had and since it was my last appointment of the day I told him I was totally free so we basically tasted through just about every foudre in the cellar before moving to the final blend of all the component parts. Vincent Avril was flashing one smile after another as we methodically worked through the foudres. The lowest score I gave any of them was (95-98) and virtually all of them were coming in between 97 and 100 points. I ll go out on a relatively safe limb and state that I believe the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape is the greatest Clos des Papes I have ever tasted! The fact that there should be around 100 000 bottles produced is music to my ears since the biggest complaint I hear about most of the top wines in this journal is that they are always made in such limited quantities. The 2007 will end up with a finished alcohol of about 15.5% and a pH of about 3.8. The average yields for this vintage were slightly higher than in 2006 about 24 hectoliters per hectare which is essentially under 2 tons of fruit per acre. The 2007 reveals all the characteristics that make Clos des Papes so special including extraordinary elegance remarkable complexity in the black raspberry kirsch truffle meaty Provencal herbaceousness full-bodied palate voluptuous silky tannins and mind-boggling richness and length. Nothing is out of place and there are no hard edges in this beautiful Chateauneuf du Pape. The vintage s cool growing conditions have given the wine a freshness to go along with its substantial size and power. This monumental Chateauneuf is a tour de force in winemaking. It should be relatively accessible in 3-4 years and evolve along the lines of the 1978 only the 2007 has more to it so expect it to last at least 30 years. Not to be missed!
