Plush, with delicious purity to the crushed plum, macerated currant and warm fig flavors. Dark and racy through the finish, with a mouthwatering graphite edge. Superlong and precise. Drink now through 2019.

The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape has a deep black/purple color and a sweet nose of charcoal, black cherries, raspberry, and some Provencal herbs and pepper. In the mouth itandrsquo;s tannic and clearly a vin de garde with refreshing acidity, real vibrancy, but surprising power and length. As Christophe Sabon said, andldquo;Itandrsquo;s a wine that comes across as feminine because of the high acids and low pH, but then the finished alcohol is close to fifteen percent!andrdquo; Give this wine 3andndash;5 years of cellaring and drink it over the following fifteen as it will be extremely long-lived.

The 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape is Sabon's finest example of this cuvee I have yet tasted. It boasts a fabulous blue/purple color as well as a gorgeous nose of creme de cassis, kirsch, licorice, incense, and spice. Deep, full-bodied, and multilayered with excellent purity, depth, and length, it should drink beautifully for 20 years.

Dark and concentrated, with solid grip for the vintage helping to push the black fig, currant, mocha, bittersweet cocoa and Turkish coffee notes through the long, juicy finish. Drink now through 2028.

A true sleeper of the vintage, and a wine to buy by the case given its reasonable price is the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape. This blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah and Mourvedre from 40-year-old vines was aged 80% in tank and the rest in small oak. Its dense purple color is accompanied by sweet aromas of creme de cassis, kirsch, incense, spice box, and a touch of toast. Deep and multidimensional with huge glycerin, great acids, and sweet tannins, this massive 2007 is accessible now, and should last for 15-20+ years.

Deep ruby. Fresh raspberry and strawberry aromas are elegant and precise. Bright, racy and poised, with sweet red fruit and gentle mineral flavors and a distinctly silky texture. Finishes impressively pure and long, with precise red fruit flavors.

The 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape reveals classic kirsch liqueur notes intermixed with spice box, licorice, blackberries, and smoke. It is medium to full-bodied and elegant yet authoritatively flavorful and beautifully textured. Sabon always ages the Grenache component in old foudres, but keeps his Syrah and Mourvedre in small barrels.
