Terrific example of the vintage - this is loaded with the pepper, garrigue, grilled herb and briary tannins, all backed by powerful layers of dark currant, plum and blackberry fruit. Lingering hint of dried orange peel adds further dimension. Best from 2007 through 2030.

Peppery and earthy, with notes of roasted herbes de Provence, sweet cherry jam, the seaweed wrapper used in sushi bars (nori) with a touch of fig, the soft, round, generously endowed, complex 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape shows a dark garnet color and plenty of glycerin, alcohol, and fruit. Drink it over the next 10-12 years.

Ruby-red. Intense red berry aromas, with complicating notes of orange peel and potpourri. Suave and silky on the palate, with red fruit flavors taking on a lavender aspect with air. The very long and wonderfully sweet finish features fine-grained tannins and a persistent raspberry note.

The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape is superb, but it has to take a back seat to the 2006. Dark ruby with notes of underbrush, the seaweed wrapper nori, kirsch liqueur, and a bit of pepper and spice box, it is deep and broad, with outstanding concentration, moderately high tannin, and a nicely structured, pure mouthfeel. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2022.

Forward and lush for the vintage, with dark currant and fig paste flavors backed by licorice, coffee, garrigue and braised beef notes. The long, smoky finish has a lingering touch of mesquite. The profile is black fruit, but the structure is remarkably elegant for the vintage, with lovely poise. Drink now through 2023.

The 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape is a brilliant effort, but it is hard to say if it will be better than the terrific 1998, 2000, and 2001. A blend of 82% Grenache, 8% Syrah, 5% Mourvedre, and 5% Vaccarese, it possesses a deep ruby/garnet color as well as a sweet bouquet of plums, figs, raspberries, cherries, and cola. Medium to full-bodied, with silky tannin, high glycerin, and wonderful density and depth, it is a multi-layered, sensual Chateauneuf du Pape that tastes like a grand cru Burgundy from a ripe, seductive vintage. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.

Medium red. Intense aromas of jammy raspberry and wild strawberry, fresh rose, candied violet and magnolia. A remarkably lush, creamy wine, with vibrant, expressive red berry and subtle garrigue flavors that expand all the way through the very long finish. A compelling wine that offers great purity and balance and very suave tannins.

Winemaker's Notes:

97 points Robert Parker: I believe the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape is the finest wine ever made at Charvin. Their wines never achieve a lot of color, but this is one of the most saturated ones they have produced. The blend from the 45- to 50-year-old vines is 85% Grenache and the rest equal parts Syrah, Mourvedre, and Vaccarese... A terrific nose of kirsch, lavender, licorice, forest floor, and spice box soars from the glass of this full-bodied effort. With fabulous density, a multidimensional mouthfeel, and a 45+-second finish this brilliant, elegant, feminine-styled wine is loaded with concentration and intensity... the extraordinary fruit level makes it hard to resist. However, it will be even better in 3-5 years and should last for 15-20.
