2007 Delas Frères "Haute Pierre" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1046726 92-94 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2007 Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah. It reveals a deep ruby/purple color in addition to a gorgeous nose of black fruits, spring flowers, licorice, incense, lavender, and grilled Provencal herbs. Dense, full-bodied, flamboyant, and chewy, with that terrific freshness and purity that characterize this great vintage in the south, it should drink well for 12-15+ years. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2008)

93 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Aged in neutral oak casks for 14 months, the 2007 Delas Frères Châteauneuf-du-Pape Haute Pierre is a beauty. Inky in color, with thrilling notes of roasted herbs, licorice, meat juice, and smoked black fruits, it boasts a seamless palate that is medium to full-bodied, beautifully integrated, and shows surprising freshness and polish, as well as noteworthy purity of fruit. This takes the better part of the evening to show at its best, so if drinking anytime soon, give it an hour in a decanter. It should continue to shine for 12-15 years. Inner quote mark (3/2012)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Very friendly fig, boysenberry and blackberry fruit is woven with violet, anise and fruitcake notes that extend through the long, well-rounded finish. (JM) Inner quote mark (9/2009)

K&L Notes

Beginning in the late 1990s Delas Frères undertook a renaissance in wine. Their objective: to produce stunning terroir driven wines with exceptional quality-to-price ratio. Under new leadership and ambitious investments in the winery, they are succeeding admirably. With the 2007 Haute Pierre, winemaker Jacques Grange and his team have once again produced a Rhône wine with an amazing price quality ratio. Recommended pairings include beef daube a la Provencale, lamb stew or sirloin steak slathered with anchovy butter. 15% abv
