    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep dark red in color with aromas of spices and mature red fruits. The wine has round tannins with powerful complexity. A rich unctuous wine with notes of mature plums, hazelnuts and red fruits. Very rich, full of harmony and balance.

    Critical Acclaim:

    One of the finest Chateauneufs made by Guigal, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape is a blend of 85% Grenache and the rest Syrah and Mourvedre. Full-bodied with lots of kirsch, blackberry, raspberry, camphor and licorice, this is a classic example of both Chateauneuf du Pape and Provencal viticulture. It is aged in both tank and foudre for 3-4 years prior to being released. Drink it over the next 20 years. It is amazing that Guigal can consistently produce a wine of this majesty.

    Bright purple. This looks like a much younger wine. Heady aromas of candied black and blue fruits, garrigue and licorice, with a smoky overtone. Rich but lively, offering vibrant cherry and boysenberry flavors that gain energy and sweetness with air. Quite showy, with excellent finishing clarity, soft tannins and lingering sweetness. Demonstrates the best attributes of this ripe vintage. The 2009 Gigondas, which I reviewed last year, is showing exceptionally well right now, with an exotic, spice- and floral-accented bouquet of ripe red fruits and supple texture. It will doubtless age gracefully but I found it to be drinking very well this November.

    Aromatic cedar and mesquite notes lead the way with fleshy steeped plum, red currant and blackberry fruit at the core. Shows nice integration through the finish, where bay, ganache and espresso accents fill in.

    I bought 6 bottles of this wine a while back. Wasn't that impressed with the first bottle we opened. We are drinking it again tonight and it has really improved. An excellent nose, smoky flavor and long, complex finish. I'm now very happy that I have four more bottles.
