Domaine de la Janasse Vieilles Vignes Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2007 (1500ml)

$489

The 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is one of the vintage's most compelling wines. Most of the fruit for this offering comes from the estate vineyards in La Crau...Approximately 5,000-6,000 bottles are produced...what a profoundly great effort! It is an elixir of Chateauneuf du Pape with an inky/blue/purple color and an extraordinary nose of kirsch liqueur, black raspberries, licorice, truffles, graphite, and spice. The wine boasts enormous richness, incredible harmony, and a finish that lasts more than a minute. It is one of the most outrageously rich, concentrated, and perfect Chateauneuf du Papes I have ever tasted... Robert Parker

Here I am again with a pop goes the bramble weasel moment. Even at a listed 15.5 alcohol (certainly a lie) this beast had some elegance and subtlety. I think it's a testament to terroir. Even over ripe as this is (to me) it has the depth, and more importantly, width of flavors to hold up to the glycerin floating on top, like grease from my father-in-law's chili cook-off, red ribbon special. On the third day it seems that the wine rested a bit, and it sang a good hymn with my bacony crepinette.

Great floral perfume and fresh red fruit. Rich spice and great tart Grenache acid. Lightness that escape some producers in 07. I can't get enough of this. Tonight's #wotn

Some may not like the use of new oak in this wine, but it was delicious! Layered and complex.

18/20 (95/100) В первом носе доминируют тона бретта - пот, навоз. В развитии аромат становится гармоничным, сложным и насыщенным: черничный джем, спелая ежевика, чернослив, розы, мята, ваниль, чёрный шоколад и кожа. Тельное с умеренной кислотностью и мягкими, бархатистыми танинами. Существенная спиртуозность делает вино «тяжелым», трудно выпить больше одного бокала. Послевкусие продолжительное.

Sweetness in a glass and I'm not talking residual sugar. 15.5% alc on the label but extremely balanced for '07. On the edge of being over-ripe: yes. But what a compelling glass of wine.
