Domaine Font de Michelle Red Rhone Blend Côtes du Rhône 2007
[93 pts Stephen Tanzer] Deep red. Highly expressive aromas of red berries smoky herbs Asian spices and minerals. Smooth and silky with sweet raspberry and kirsch flavors and no obvious tannins. A seductive juicy wine that finishes with excellent breadth and precision. I suspect this will be alluring on release. --------- [Robert Parker] A sleeper selection is the sexy 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape. It offers plenty of spice box fruitcake and black cherry jam notes along with a creamy texture and opulent lush silky tannins. The vintage?ÇÖs lack of excessive heat spikes has provided freshness as well as terrific aromatics. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.

A sleeper selection is the sexy 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape. It offers plenty of spice box, fruitcake, and black cherry jam notes along with a creamy texture, and opulent, lush, silky tannins.

Dark red. Fresh red berry are complemented by notes of dried rose, allspice and anise. Energetic raspberry and cherry flavors gain weight with air, taking a turn to deeper plum and bitter chocolate while maintaining vivacity. Soft tannins add structure and carry through the long, spicy finish. This is drinking well already.
Very ripe, with velvety layers of crushed plum and mulled blackberry fruit interwoven with bittersweet ganache, fruitcake and melted licorice. The long, dense, fleshy finish sails on nicely. Approachable now, thanks to the sleek structure, but better with a touch of cellaring. Best from 2010 through 2025.
