2007 Domaine La Millière "Vieilles Vignes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1059666 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The beautiful 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes (from 80- to 100-year-old vines) is a blend of 60% Grenache and the rest equal parts Syrah, Mourvedre, Cinsault, and Counoise aged in concrete tanks and old wood foudres. An effusively fruity, exuberant effort, it reveals plenty of juicy black currants and black cherries intermixed with lavender, licorice, incense, and forest floor. Full-bodied, dense, and seductive with silky tannins and a long, lush, opulent finish, it is impossible to resist at present, and should continue to evolve for 10-12+ years. (RP)  (10/ 2009)

 Vivid ruby. Strawberry, black raspberry, flowers and spices on the nose, with a suave mineral undertone. Graceful and focused, offering pinot noir-like clarity to its sweet red and dark berry flavors and showing no rough edges. The mineral note repeats on the finish and adds an energetic quality. This is delicious right now.  (1/ 2010)

Jancis Robinson

 Glowing ruby. Hidden, but intriguing nose. Solid and tarry. Very sweet start and then molten black cherries. Then it tightens itself up for the finish, but all is very interesting and promising. Good balance and a wine with a beginning, middle and end. 18/20 points.  (12/ 2008)

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.
