Drinking so well already, hence immediately impressive. Mostly Grenache but with a good portion of Syrah, Mourvedre, and Cinsault. Aged in a combination of used barrels and casks. Very good density and concentration. Impressive depth, richness, and power.

"The superb 2007s include a sleeper of the vintage, the reasonably priced 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape. Composed of 90% Grenache and equal parts Syrah and Mourvedre from 60-year-old vines, and aged primarily in tank with a small amount kept in 600-liter demi-muids, it exhibits a deep ruby/purple color as well as sweet, candied berry aromas intermixed with hints of boysenberries, black raspberries, kirsch, and lavender. Opulent, luscious, full-bodied, pure, and impressively built with soft tannins and good acids, it should drink well for 12-15 years." 93/100 Robert M. Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate

"Fresh and driven, with a delicious core of intense blackberry and raspberry fruit laid over licorice-tinged structure, followed by a long finish of spice and graphite. Nicely focused from beginning to end. Drink now through 2020." 93/100 Wine Spectator
