BRONZE MEDAL - Decanter World Wine Awards Chateauneuf-du-Pape in the Rhone region of France, takes its name from the relocation of the papal court to Avignon in the 14th century. It is the biggest and most important specific Rhone appellation. Its vines grow in what looks like a shingle beach of big, smooth, oval stones that often cover the whole surface of the vineyard. These rounded stones reflect the heat of the sun during the day and remain warm at night. This allows the grapes to attain a high degree of maturity.

The brilliant 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Alexis Establet (100% Grenache from 100-year-old vines from a parcel situated in the northern end of Chateauneuf du Pape known as La Gardiole) is one of the finest wines this estate has ever made. A saturated ruby/purple color (surprising given the fact that the 100% Grenache was aged primarily in small oak) is followed by fabulous levels of concentration, rich, ripe fruit, good freshness and vibrancy (because of the lack of any excessive heat during the growing season), plenty of pepper, licorice, grilled Provencal herbs, and exceptional levels of red and black fruits. The tannins are silky, the wine is broad and savory, and the finish lasts nearly a minute. Drink this super wine over the next 15–20 years.
