Cuve du Vatican Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rserve Sixtine 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

95 points Rhone Report: The 2007 Cuvée du Vatican Châteauneuf-du-Pape Réserve Sixtine is much more feminine than previous vintages with bright, perfumed and nuanced aromatics of black cherries, spice, licorice and raw meat that lead into a stunningly smooth, silky palate. Full bodied and perfectly balanced, this has a mouth filling yet precise texture, fresh acidity and a long finish where the wine shows more structure and ripe tannin. This is a stunning wine that should drink beautifully over the next 15+ years. (Aug 2009)
