2007 Bosquet des Papes "Tradition" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1053377 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape, a sleeper of the vintage, is one of the finest traditional cuvees they have made. Its dark ruby/purple color is followed by a medium to full-bodied wine revealing classic Provencal aromas of pepper, garrigue, black cherries, plums, and a hint of earth. Pure, broad, and savory with silky tannins and a lush personality, this fruit-filled Chateauneuf is ideal for drinking over the next 10-12 years.  (10/2009)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Opaque ruby. Pungent blackberry and cherry aromas are complemented by anise and smoky herbs. Lush, open-knit dark fruit flavors are lifted by zesty minerality and framed by supple tannins. The tannins turn firmer with air and add grip to the long, spicy, focused finish. Showing a more serious side than it did from barrel.  (2/2010)

90 points Wine Spectator

 Very solid, with fig and raspberry ganache flavors allied to a graphite spine. Perfumy incense and mulled spice notes fill out the slightly taut finish. Best from 2010 through 2018.  (11/2009)

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.
