    Varietal: Rhone Red Blends

    Item no. 99863

    Winemaker's Notes:

    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

    Critical Acclaim:

    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.

    95 Points
    Wine Spectator

    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.

    Very drinkable and thank goodness it was only $50. 95 points from two different sources makes me wonder who was drinking the Kool-Aid... I doubt in a blind tasting this would have scored that well. I'm always interested in the process and politics in scoring wines and which wineries are favored over others, or whether because of the region or the age of the vines those judging are all agog with misplaced nuance and enthusiasm. Did it have riveting acidity? Not that much. A long finish? yes, but compared to say a wine with 92 points? Having just spent two weeks in Bordeaux, I think there are certainly plenty of wines the same caliber without the 95 point rating.
