2007 La Milliere "Vieilles Vignes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)
92-94 points Robert Parker: "The 2007 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes reveals gorgeous aromas of spring flowers, crushed black cherries, ink, lavender, and spice. The wine is dense ruby/purple-hued, deep, and full-bodied with terrific concentration, a layered texture, and a stunningly long finish. It should drink beautifully young, yet age for 15 or more years."(10/08) 90-93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby. Intensely perfumed, with a spicy bouquet of raspberry, kirsch, smoky herbs and minerals. Open-knit red and dark berry flavors coat the palate and are supported by fine-grained tannins. Finishes with good sweetness, clarity and an echo of minerals. Here's another 2007 that will be very appealing on release." (Jan/Feb '09). ETA End of 2009.
