Other oustanding Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

Cherry, pepper, spice, herbs, plums, and an interesting leather finish.

Very complex and tasty. Loved it!

Here's a well-balanced, very ripe but not baked example of Châteauneuf, from the highly regarded 2007 vintage. It's full of dusty earth and Mediterranean scrub flavours. Acid is moderate, alcohol is generous but not exaggerated and the finish is lingering. Serve with a light chill to highlight the good parts (fruit and herbs) and downplay the heat. Complex and compelling all in all. Tasted June 2011. Value Rating: **1/2

Just what I expected! A wonderful blend chalked full of rich, sweet and well defined fruit flavours. A touch of spice is evident on the long rich finish. This wine lives up to its well deserved reputation!

This was stored in a cellar but is well past it's prime. Disapppointing.
