2007 Isabelle Ferrando "Colombis" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1044948 100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 A wine I’ve had numerous times, yet never as spectacular as on this occasion, the 100% Grenache 2007 Châteauneuf du Pape Colombis sports a deep ruby, opaque color to go with a huge nose of lavender, incense, Provencal herbs, licorice and ground pepper. Nothing comes closer to representing the essence of Provence, and this full-bodied, unctuous, elegant and sexy effort has sweet tannin, not a single hard edge to be found and a blockbuster finish. It’s drinking so well now, I don’t see any reason to hold off, but I suspect it will keep for another decade. (JD)  (2/2017)

K&L Notes

92-95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Inky ruby. Fresh, complex bouquet of spicy red berries, cherry, minerals and fresh flowers; there's an appealingly Burgundian quality to this wine. Brisk and focused, with sweet red fruit flavors, silky texture and very fine tannins. The finish is impressively pure and vibrant, with the raspberry note clinging tenaciously." (Jan/Feb '09) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Lovely kirsch, pepper, shiso leaf and mulled cherry fruit aromas and flavors run through this full-bodied, silky-textured offering, followed by a long, cherry fruit¿filled finish. A flattering, modern style. Grenache. Drink now through 2023. 665 cases made." (10/09) ETA Fall of 2009.

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Rhone

- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
