Domaine la Roquete Chateauneuf-du-Pape l'Accent de la Roquete 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"Potentially prodigious, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape l’Accent de Roquete boasts a dense ruby/purple hue along with sumptuous aromas of black raspberries, kirsch, licorice, pepper, and Asian spices. Ripe, full-bodied, incredibly pure, and multi-dimensional, the finish lasts for nearly 50 seconds. This fabulous Chateauneuf du Pape will compete with the top wines of this stunning vintage. It should drink beautifully for two decades. Formerly Domaine La Roquete (and mis-spelled last year as Roquette), the Brunier family has changed the name to Clos La Roquete as they recognize this is a true “clos” (a totally walled vineyard). As I have indicated in several recent Chateauneuf du Pape reports, this is one of the estates for which the Bruniers have pushed the envelope of quality higher and higher in each new vintage. This is the finest group of wines they have yet produced, and readers should take serious note...93-95" WA 10/08
