Winemaker's Notes:

Plump and forward with black cherry plum spice and mineral notes. Nice little grip on the back end.

Rich but pure, with lovely crushed plum and violet aromas followed by layers of mesquite, roasted vanilla, melted licorice and pastis. Long and very silky through the finish. Still quite primal now, but should evolve nicely. Best from 2010 through 2022.

The 2007 Châteauneuf de Pape (70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre from 65-year old vines) is an exceptionally strong effort. Aged in tank (80%) and small oak barrels (20%), it is a dense, full-bodied wine revealing an inky/purple color along with notes of graphite, blackberries, and cassis. With a sumptuous, layered, full-bodied texture, sweet, velvety tannins, and zesty freshness as well as acidity, it should drink well for 12-14 years.

Vivid purple. Highly aromatic nose shows dark berry preserves, potpourri and white pepper. Lush, creamy blackberry and blueberry flavors are lifted by peppery spices and framed by velvety tannins. The sappy finish clings with very good authority and repeats the blueberry note, with a late note of candied licorice building with air.

Bright purple. Exotically perfumed nose displays scents of fresh blackberry, white pepper, incense and potpourri. Lush and creamy on the palate, with sweet dark berry flavors supported by slow-mounting tannins. The peppery note repeats on the focused, brisk finish.

The superb 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape exhibits a deep ruby/purple color followed by notes of cassis, black raspberries, licorice, charcoal, and a hint of camphor. It possesses superb concentration, full-bodied richness, great purity and texture, and a long finish that lasts 35-40 seconds. Drink it over the next 12-15+ years.

Ruby-red. Mineral-driven aromas of strawberry, cherry and tobacco. Snappy red fruit flavors show good depth and clarity, with silky tannins adding shape. In fact, the red fruit finish seems a touch hard.

The 2005 Châteauneuf du Pape is performing even better than it did last year. The wine has a dense ruby/purple color and a sweet nose of boysenberry, blackberry, and a hint of kirsch, with some loamy soil notes, ground pepper, and some incense and camphor. Ripe, full-bodied, with moderate tannins and a gorgeous, layered mouthfeel, this is a beauty that will be at its best in 1-3 years and last up to 15. This is definitely a modernist take on Chateauneuf du Pape, but the wines never lose the soul and typicity of Provence. They are impeccably well-made, pure, and deeply colored.
