Vintage: 2007 04/29/2012

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!

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.

Very pure, with a big beam of raspberry and boysenberry confiture running through the middle, along with notes of licorice, violet and graphite. Long finish has deceptive grip. A producer steadily on the rise. Drink now through 2026.

The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape is certainly one of the stars of the vintage. Impressively deep ruby/purple-colored with a stunningly complex nose of roasted meats, incense, ground pepper, kirsch, and blackberry, the wine is deep, full-bodied, opulent, and very rich as well as pure. This is a seriously endowed, top-flight Chateauneuf du Pape that will be drinkable in 2andndash;3 years and last for two decades.

Really sleek and focused, with a large core of plum and linzer torte fruit in reserve for now, while hints of mesquite, spice cake, black licorice and graphite flicker through on the finish. Dense and reserved, so cellar for maximum effect. Best from 2010 through 2025.
