A 100% Grenache cuvee from the sandy soils of a 106-year-old, biodynamically farmed La Crau vineyard, and aged in both foudre and tank, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Speciale is amazing. Abundant notes of melted licorice, kirsch liqueur, and flowers is followed by a full-bodied, seamlessly constructed wine with sensational purity, texture, depth, and length. The bad news is there are only 2,000 bottles. This 2007 should drink well for two decades or more. Robert Parker

CdP just isn't my jam, even when it's as idiosyncratic as this. Intellectually compelling, but I struggle with the enjoyment. That said, this killed it at the tasting, so it's a me issue. Thanks @Max Kogod and #kogodwinemerchant !

Good and rich. Slightly baked. Fun but simple. From mag

Beautiful dark fruit and spice in the glass....brambly, herbaceous aromas....rolls across the palate effortlessly, still lively and young with all of the earthy tinged black fruit, tea leaf, and kirsch that CdPs typically show...wish i had more to lay down for another 5-10 years...
