2007 Domaine Senechaux Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Elsewhere $65)

SKU #1053708 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Senechaux’s 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape is one sexy Chateauneuf that has notes of ripe black cherries, garrigue and flowers soaring from the glass. Ripe, full-bodied and showing the purity, complexity and seamlessness that’s the hallmark of this vintage (and the estate), it’s drinking at point but will keep for another 7-8 years with no issues.

92 points Wine Spectator

 Fresh, pure and well-defined, with a beam of dark currant, fig and boysenberry fruit kept honest by graphite and black tea notes. The seamless finish sails on. Drink now through 2022. (JM)  (11/2009)

90 points Vinous

 Deep red with a bright rim. Fresh red berry and spicecake aromas lifted by a floral nuance. Juicy, finely etched raspberry and cherry flavors provide very good palate coverage and are braced by tangy minerality. Gains weight with air and finishes long, with a sweet note of black raspberry. (JR)  (1/2010)

This historic property can trace its origins back to the14th century, having produced vines intermittently for over 700 years before being bought by the Cazes family of Lynch-Bages fame a few years ago. The 2007 vintage in the southern Rhône will go down as one of the finest in decades, suffused with superlatively-ripened fruit, buoyant acidity and expressive tannins. The appealing weight, vibrancy and savory mouthfeel of this full-bodied wine will demand food equal to the task— coq au vin or better yet, Thanksgiving turkey with all the trimmings.

Stunning Châteauneuf! Rich, deep color, and a very perfumed nose of fresh herbs, lavender and dried figs. On the palate, all of that come together with an explosion of flavors that include dark berries and cherries, licorice, currants and figs, but with a definite savory note to it. Incredibly long finish. This is, in my opinion, the very best Châteauneuf we have at this moment in this price range. Picture perfect Provençal wine!

This is a wonderfully juicy full bodied CDP. A smooth wine with lots of cherry and licorice flavors. It can be had with food or just by itself. I should have brought some more.

Rhone Blends

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. Click for a list of bestselling items from all of France.
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.
