2007 Domaine de la Charbonnière "Cuvée Vieilles Vignes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1059300 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 My notes on the dense ruby/purple-colored 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Vieilles Vignes (95% Grenache and 5% Mourvedre from 80-year-old vines) begin with the words 'serious stuff.' Deep, rich, and full-bodied with abundant notes of forest floor, truffles, earth, kirsch, raspberries, and black currants, this powerful, layered, multidimensional, long, ageworthy wine should drink well between 2012-2028.

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Bright red. Expressive raspberry and cherry-scented bouquet is complicated by notes of baking spices and wilted rose. Finely etched red fruit flavors gain depth with air and take a turn to blacker raspberry, with a zesty note of white pepper emerging on the back. Already very tasty but has the balance to age.  (2/2010)

92 points Wine Spectator

 A round, fresh style, with mouthwatering floral, red licorice, red cherry and plum notes all wrapped up by nice racy acidity. Pure and driven on the finish, with a lingering hint of roasted apple wood. Best from 2010 through 2024. 750 cases made. (JM)  (10/2009)

Jancis Robinson

 Grenache Noir 70%, Mourvèdre 30%. Ageing initially in wooden vats but after eight months put into enamelled vats. Interesting claret-like raciness on the nose. Very juicy fruit. Not that much structure but lovely clean refreshing flavours. (JR) 17.5 Points  (12/2008)

Rhone Blends



- 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.


- 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.
