This is seriously dark, with bittersweet chocolate, braised beef, fig, tar and ground espresso notes leading the charge, while dark plum and currant fruit wait in the background. Cuts a broad swath on the muscular finish. Very backward, with a ways to go, this has harnessed more grip than most in this vintage. Best from 2010 through 2030.

An amazing effort, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape eclipses what I wrote about it last year. Every time I went back to it, the wine revealed more nuances as well as greater depth. Full-bodied and powerful, it exhibits a compelling bouquet of creme de cassis, ground pepper, incense, seaweed, garrigue, and licorice. The knock-out aromatics are followed by a wine with colossal richness, a multilayered texture, no sense of heaviness, an incredibly deep, penetrating palate feel, and a finish that goes on for 50+ seconds. Philippe Bravay is one of the most modest and serious Chateauneuf du Pape vignerons, and it is a thrill to see him hit a home run in this vintage. For statisticians, it is made from 80- to 85+-year-old vines from two of the great sectors of Chateauneuf du Pape, La Gardiole and Cabrieres. It is composed of 90% Grenache and the rest Syrah, Mourvedre, and Cinsault. Moreover, it is the quintessential traditional Chateauneuf du Pape aged 12ndash;14 months in tank before being bottled without filtration. The dense purple-colored 2007 will benefit from 2ndash;3 years of bottle age, and last for 20ndash;25 years. Bravo!

The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape has a dense ruby/purple color, notes of smoked game, jammy black cherries and blackberries, full body, some of the classic licorice, garrigue, and meaty notes along with superb texture, moderate tannin, and good acidity. This is a beauty that should evolve for 15 or more years.

An impressive effort for Bravay is his 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape, a wine of great intensity with classic Provencal garrigue notes interwoven with ground pepper, incense, seaweed, licorice, and oodles of black cherry and smoky blackberry fruit. Impressively full-bodied, structured and dense, this wine needs 2ndash;3 years of bottle age, and should keep for two decades. Charles Bravay continues to turn out brilliant Chateauneuf du Papes, eschewing the current fashion of making old vine or single-vineyard cuvees.

Bravay has also turned in a beautiful 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape displaying the classic, complex aromatic profile that he seems to achieve routinely. Aromas of black fruits, scorched earth, incense, licorice, pepper, and roasted Provencal herbs are followed by a full-bodied, rich, deep, long, concentrated wine with impressive layers of black cherries and black currants. Drink it over the next 10andndash;15 years.
