The nose is big but simple at first as all I could detect was black strap molasses. With time in glass sweet and rich smells of spice cookie, cinnamon gram cracker and black currant began to rise from the glass. The palate was like velvet on the front palate that turned searing acidity on the mid and showed cherry cough syrup, fig newton and milk chocolate. The finish tasted of burnt sugar. BUT, through all of this, the wine tasted more like a cocktail that anything else. THe overdone sweet verse alcohol was too much and some sips would literally leave the burning aftertaste of alcohol behind on the palate as if you'd just taken a shot of vodka. It was all T & A without any brains, good for a one night stand but do you really want to take it home and watch it age?

There are 4,000 bottles of the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve des Deux Freres (which sports a new label). Another monumental example of Chateauneuf, this 100% Grenache reveals no evidence of makeup. It is about as natural an expression of old vine ... Robert Parker.

The 4,400-case blend of 80% Grenache and the rest Syrah, Mourvedre, and Cinsault, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape boasts a dense plum/purple color as well as a wonderfully sweet nose of fresh black truffles, incense, blue and black fruits, roasted herbs...

Pierre Usseglio Chateauneuf's are some the hottest collectible wines on the market. With the incredible success of the 2007 vintage, this wine is destined for cult status. Robert Parker scored it 90-93 and said "the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape possesses a dense ruby/purple hue as well as wonderfully sweet aromas of blue and black fruits, underbrush, truffles, incense, and garrigue. It is full-bodied, opulent, fleshy, powerful and substantial in the mouth." Very limited due to extraordinary low yields. This item excluded from XTYPAK and any other discounts or offers beyond the 15% case discount. Not sponsored by or affiliated with The Wine Advocate


Winemaker's Notes:

"The perfect 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve des Deux Freres is slightly more evolved and complex than the Mon Aieul, as odd as that seems. Having had it twice out of bottle, this wine (nearly 100% Grenache combined with a few dollops of Syrah) possesses an opaque ruby/purple color as well as a thrilling texture and monumental length (the finish lasts over 60 seconds). It-s a blockbuster, but everything is in perfect balance, and, remarkably, it comes across as the most accessible Reserve des Deux Freres made to date. This wine-s aging is completely different from its sibling-s. Sixty percent is aged in 1, 2, and 3-year-old Burgundy barrels, and the rest in small new oak barrels, but there is not a hint of new oak in the aromatics. The bouquet reveals plenty of blackberry, blueberry, and cassis fruit intertwined with notions of melted licorice, spring flowers, and that classic garrigue note that comes across as the seaweed wrapper used in sushi restaurants, nori. There is a certain smokiness that is probably attributable to the oak, and the wine has incredible depth and richness, as well as a finish that seems endless. This extraordinary Chateauneuf du Pape is another prodigious effort in this historic vintage. It should drink well for two decades or more...100." WA 10/31/09
