Clos Saint-Michel Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vin Rouge Vin Tranquille France Rhône A.o.c. Franck et Olivier Mousset Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The white Chateauneuf is just sublime: aromas of acacia and wild mint jostle with honey, beeswax and vanilla, a mouthful of subtle pleasure. This is a didapper palate, a wine whose flavours seem to disappear only to bob up again like a nervous dabchick. Grenache 30%, Clairette 30%, Roussanne 20%, Bourboulenc 20%, all the grapes being manually harvested and fermented separately in 225 litre oak casks. After twelve months, and after a rigorous selection process, the wines are blended. Both colours of Chateauneuf will age happily for ten years or more.

This is a ponderous, clumsy wine. Good depth of fruit, but a bit much on the leather, tar side of the flavour spectrum. Pricey for current enjoyment, and I see no improvement with time.
