This exceptional vintage derives exclusively from the Côte Ronde, a parcel of ninety-year-old stock rooted in galets roulés and chunks of fossilized limestone.
50% Grenache-50% Syrah
A stunner, combining the rich currant, fig and boysenberry fruit of the vintage with the region's characteristic charred applewood, graphite, aged tobacco and black tea notes. The long, invigorating finish is supported by riveting acidity and well-embedded grip. When power and finesse work together, it's a beautiful thing. Drink now through 2025. 400 cases imported.
The 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee La Cote Ronde (a blend of equal parts Grenache and Syrah from 60-year-old vines, with the Syrah enjoying malolactic fermentation in barrel and aging in new oak) possesses smoky, roasted herb, seaweed wrapper, licorice, cassis, and black cherry characteristics. The oak component is beautifully integrated, and the wine has superb concentration, a full-bodied style, and a true Chateauneuf du Pape personality in spite of the new oak. It should drink well for 15+ years.
