    Winemaker's Notes:

    50% Grenache – 30% Mourvèdre – 10% Syrah – 10% Cinsault. Aged for 24 mths. in 2 to 4 years old barrels. Without a doubt, it's the best Chateauneuf ever made at Saint Cosme since 2001. These vines are managed organically; that gives it such purity. This bottle will evolve well because the 07 brings balance, which is important for a long-life wine. Truffle, Tapenade, garrigue, cherries, gingerbread.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape, which Barruol purchases from select vignerons, is dominated by Grenache, but it includes at least 30% Mourvedre and a small quantity of Cinsault. A dense purple color is accompanied by a ripe nose of red and black fruits, Christmas fruitcake, spice box, garrigue, and pepper. Rich and full-bodied with moderate tannin, good acidity, and a layered, intense mouthfeel, it will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring, and should age for 15+ years.

    The Wine Advocate

    Bright purple. Exotically perfumed bouquet of black raspberry, potpourri and smoky Indian spices. Lush, creamy, expansive red and dark berry preserve flavors are complemented by notes of allspice and anise, with supple tannins gaining strength on the back end. A kick of zesty spices lends energy and thrust to the finish, but this seamless wine is delicious already.
