2007 Bosquet des Papes "A la Gloire de Mon Grandpere" Châteauneuf-du-Papes

SKU #1052311 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 A bigger, richer wine than the classic cuvee, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape A la Gloire de Mon Grand-Père checks in as close to 100% Grenache (there‚Äôs a splash of Cinsault and Clairette) that was brought up in demi-muids and foudre. It offers a downright sexy, full-bodied, seamless character as well as overflowing Provencal charm in its ripe kirsch and black cherry fruit, spice, cured meats and garrigue aromas and flavors. Drink it anytime over the coming decade. (JD)  (2/2017)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Vivid ruby. Highly perfumed bouquet of cassis and kirsch complicated by notes of smoky garrigue and minerals. Lush red and dark berry flavors become more lively in the middle palate and pick up a suave floral quality toward the back. Finishes juicy, sweet and impressively pure, with lingering nuances of sweet black raspberry and lavender pastille. This seamless wine is delicious right now. (JR)  (2/2010)

92 points Wine Spectator

 Rather dark, with a brawny edge to the tobacco, wood spice, olive and fig paste flavors, which weave around a core of bittersweet cocoa and dark currant fruit. The finish is singed with a tarry hint. Best from 2010 through 2022. (JM)  (11/2009)

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.
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.
