The 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape La Cuvee du Papet may will turn out to be their finest example since the 1998 and 1990. Stylistically, it probably comes closest to resembling the legendary 1990. Notes of roasted meats and smoked duck, with Provencal herbs, truffle, incense, licorice, and pepper, are all there, plus enormous quantities of red and black fruits. This is one heck of a complex wine, with a bouquet that is the essence of southern France, in particular Provence. Full-bodied, powerful, with the glycerin and level of richness covering some lofty tannins, this wine is already accessible and nearly impossible to resist... Robert Parker

Dark berries, creosote, well structured. Still a baby, but maybe a hint of Brett?

This wine and I fought over 3 days, wanted to like but ultimately decided there are many more wines more enjoyable. Heavy dry tannin, plum and tart cranberry that was deconstructed and massively high VA for a 10yr old cdp. that ended hot. Tried alone, with food, none satisfied. I think it might be best while smoking pot but I'm 30years past that vice...

Over ripe cranberries simmered in blood, beef, and raw bacon served in a scorched cigar box and drizzled with molasses. Nice change of pace. I prefer a little more minerality but this is still really good.

Wow, nice CdP. At first I thought this may be too old, but as it opened up it shows a nice acidic finish. I won't wait too much longer to drink my remaining bottle.

Yum. Light cherry and strawberry on the nose. Perfect balance and long long long finish.
