Hugely toasty and oaky, and yet the wine seems too extreme given the intensity of the cherry fruit. Itrsquo;s full bodied, lush and supple, with a long, mouthwatering finish. Drink nowndash;2019.

The 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Exceptionnelle may be the finest wine Quiot has yet produced. This deep, profoundly concentrated effort boasts a dense ruby/purple-tinged color as well as a gorgeous perfume of raspberry and cherry liqueur intermixed with notions of licorice, flowers, and spice. Full-bodied and unctuously-textured, with high levels of glycerin and alcohol as well as tremendous purity, this is a terrific, full-throttle, palate-staining, impeccably well-balanced Chateauneuf du Pape that can be drunk in 2ndash;3 years, or cellared for 12ndash;15.

Very lush and ripe, with plum, fig and raspberry fruit flavors that melt over fine-grained tannins, leaving spice, cocoa, sweet smoke and mineral notes behind on the lengthy finish. Drink now through 2020.

Deep ruby red core with a light, vibrant rim color. Aromas of spice, plum, cherry, and blackberries, followed by beautiful floral notes and hints of anise. Nice earthiness about this wine, but not overboard, creating a great balance with the fresh fr... Alex Lallos.

Has a solid core of blackberry, melted licorice and coffee flavors, with hints of briar and currant paste on the mineral- and earth- driven finish. Thereandrsquo;s solid, latent grip. This fleshes out as it airs. Best from 2010 through 2020.

The 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Exceptionnelle has turned out to be significantly better than I thought last year when I tasted it prior to bottling. The greatest wine Quiot has ever made in my opinion, this wine shows a dense ruby/purple color and a gorgeous nose of camphor, blackberry, kirsch, some roast beef and Provencal herbs. Full-bodied with great intensity, beautiful purity, a multi-dimensional mouthfeel, and a spectacular finish of close to a minute, this is a fabulous effort from Quiot and should drink well for close to two decades.
