These two brilliant vintages from Laurent Charvin include a superb 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape displaying a personality reminiscent of a hypothetical blend of his 1990 and 1998. A blend of 85% Grenache and the rest equal parts Mourvedre, Vaccarese, and Syrah, all aged in old tanks, it exhibits a deep ruby/purple color as well as a sumptuous bouquet of black raspberries, kirsch liqueur, and subtle notions of underbrush and nori seaweed wrapper. Rayas-like in its ethereal richness, length, and texture with a sense of lightness despite its weight, this beauty possesses superb purity, equilibrium, texture, and elegance. Some serious tannins are lurking behind all the fruit, so this 2007 will benefit from 2-4 years of cellaring. It will drink beautifully for 15-18 years. Robert Parker

In a closed place right now. What we did have hinted at being great, elegant and refined. Not a hot mess, like many CdP have been like lately. It should be opulent Grenache at its best when it comes around next. (93-96 range)

The least expensive wine in a 7 wine blind tasting of 2007 CDPs (Some at $300), I ranked it first and the group ranked it second. First time I had ever had it.

For me, ridiculously amazing balance for a full 15%ABV.
