Le Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2007

$74.99

The three component parts of the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape, Syrah from the estate's holdings in Pialons, old vine Grenache from sandy terroirs, and Mourvedre, are all brilliant, hence the estimated rating of (94-96). The wine reveals a dense purple color along with a gorgeous bouquet of camphor, licorice, graphite, sweet red and black fruits, smoked meats, and a hint of charcoal. Full-bodied and pure with plenty of Provencal garrigue and meaty characters, this superb, chewy red should turn out to be their finest effort since the 1998 and 1990. It is a classic, traditionally made Chateauneuf du Pape to drink between 2013-2026. Robert Parker

Maria wine dinner 5/5/17. Excrement CdP to go with grilled steak. Earthy and complex, with notes of black fruits still put present.

A powerful, rounded, almost exotic CdP with no hard-edges. I kept on going back to the wine until the bottle was dry, which btw didn't take long. I've had superb bottles from different producers from the 2007 Rhone vintage.
