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

SKU #1044948

92-95 points Robert Parker: "The 2007 Châteauneuf-du-Pape looks to be the best Isabel Ferrando has made to date. A beauty, this wine exhibits a dense ruby/purple color to the rim as well as an already gloriously complex bouquet of kirsch, subtle smoked herbs, roasted meats, incense, and copious quantities of black and red fruits. It is full-bodied, with silky tannins and a sexy, supple mouthfeel. Its full-bodied richness and layered finish only add to the pleasure and intensity of this wine, which should be approachable in its youth and last for 15 or more years." (10/08) 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.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

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.
