Domaine de Saint Siffrein Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

94 points Robert Parker: The finest effort I have yet tasted from this estate, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape is composed of 65% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre, and 5% Cinsault. Its traditional upbringing included 100% aging in old foudres. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by a big, sweet, juicy kiss of kirsch liqueur intermixed with blacker fruits, raspberries, licorice, camphor, and hints of lavender and incense. The wine exhibits terrific concentration, full-bodied intensity, and a 45-50-second finish. This sensational Chateauneuf du Pape will benefit from another 2-3 years of bottle age, and should drink well for 15-20 years. (Oct 2009)

This was our first French wine. We never thought of ourselves as French wine drinkers, and had tried everything we could first to avoid the French wines. Eventually we broke down and had one, and now we wish we had tried them earlier. This wine has an aroma of cherry, plum, apricot, and incense. There is also a oak and tobbaco scent, that goes beyond just tobbaco to the smell of tobbaco leaves before they are picked. The taste is just as it smells, with a wet approach and middle, with a slight dry and long lingering finish. This is a delicious sipping wine that needs to be appriciated without food, especially because there is a slight alcohol taste at first before the other flavors come forward. We highly recommend this wine!

Ruby-red. Pungent aromas of blackcurrant, cherry-cola and incense, with a suave note of rose gaining strength with air. Broad, pliant, gently sweet dark berry flavors become firmer with air and show a complex array of floral and herbal qualities. The... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.
