Cristia Collection Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise Blanc Vallée du Rhône France 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

96+ points Rhone Report: A blend of 60% Grenache from 100 to 110 year old vines and 40% Mourvèdre, the 2007 Domaine de Cristia Châteauneuf-du-Pape Renaissance is very dark and rich with cassis, meat, and vanilla aromas, full body, stunning purity and serious precision. In complete contrast to the open and lush Vieille Vignes bottling, this shows a much more dense and structured personality, but more edge and precision and warrants cellar time. Give this a couple years and then drink over the following 20. (Aug 2009)

RED WINES The grapes are selected in the vineyard, then destemmed before being put into vats. Three weeks of fermentation and maceration in concrete vats follow, with the use of indigenous yeasts. Temperatures are kept low in order to produce aromatic wines. We do not insist on any massive extraction, but prefer the ‘matiere’ to express itself. (Due to the way we work in the vineyards, the grapes possess enough concentration). The pressed juice and free-run juice are blended together according to the vintage. Châteauneuf-du-Pape wines are aged in concrete vats and barrels for 18 months. Côtes-du-Rhône and Vin de Pays are aged only in concrete vats for 8 to 12 months. WHITE WINES The grapes are selected and pressed very quickly. They are fermented and aged for 8 months in a combination of barrels and stainless steel vats. Read less

Well-decanted bottle ... improved markedly after a day vacu-corked in the fridge ... nose had distinctive thyme and tarragon. In the mouth had smooth strong plum and berry fruit, medium acid and tannin. Balanced and well-integrated elements with a finish featuring licorice, hints of mocha, citrus, leather, and nut oil. A classic CdR, yum.

Tested from a preservation machine. Balanced nose of perfumed fruit with tart and herbal notes. Clean, elegant, balanced, well-integrated deep somewhat smoky fruit (strawberry, black cherry, raspberry, blackberry, detectable in varying proportions) that leans to the savory and is joined by slightly bitter nut oil, licorice, stone, thyme, and tarragon. On the finish everything from the palate fades together in good balance, very nice. Dry. Body medium plus, acid medium, tannin medium plus. I like these kind of wines, and they hold up vacu-corked in the fridge for several days, often peaking on day 3.

Very similar in style to the Grenache - an inherent, smooth richness that makes for high 'drinkability'. More spice on the flavour but a little lighter in style with a longer lasting flavour. Spicy, leathery touches - another good sign of a perfect roast lamb match. Lovely flavours of red fruits mixed with blackberries, elderberry, a leatheriness, a strawberry edge and a dusting of spice http://www.spittoon.biz/domaine_cristia_from_naked_win.html

Absolutely brilliant and my favorite wine of the trio of 2007s is their 100% Grenache cuvee, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes. Aged completely in small, older oak barrels, this wine displays lavish quantities of blackberry and black cherr... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

The dense ruby/purple 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape (90% Grenache and 10% Syrah) is very sexy and rich, with a beautiful nose of blueberry, blackberry, charcoal, and tapenade. Fabulously concentrated, with silky tannins and a layered, rich mouthfeel, this... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
