2007 Clos Saint-Jean Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes

SKU #1052841 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The special selection for American importer Peter Weygandt, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes, ratchets up the level of succulence, juiciness, and opulence. It is a fabulous, compelling effort of multiple dimensions. Classic aromas and flavors of licorice, kirsch liqueur, balsam wood, and lavender are found in this enormously full-bodied wine along with unreal concentration and perfect balance. This astonishing effort should drink well for 20+ years. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2009)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Deep ruby. Black raspberry, smoky herbs and Asian spices on the nose. Suave and fine-grained, with deep flavors of raspberry, blackberry and tangy minerals. A step up in extract and power from the regular bottling, with more depth and intensity to its red and dark fruit flavors. Gains a floral quality on the back half, finishing sweet, broad and minerally, with dusty tannins and an echo of candied flowers. (JR) Inner quote mark (1/2010)

K&L Notes

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is blockbuster stuff that has overflowing kirsch, blackberry, incense, lavender and Asian spices flowing to a sexy, full-bodied, multidimensional wine that has impeccable balance and knockout length. While I've a slight preference for the 2010, the 2007 has fabulous mid-palate density and an incredibly polished mouthfeel that's hard to resist. It too is drinking well now, but will have 15 to 20 years of overall longevity when all is said and done." (Wine Advocate, 8/2014)
