2007 Le Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1053724 96 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Still open and ready to go, this continues a steady stream of brilliant bottles of the 2007 Le Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Incredibly perfumed and complex, with copious kirsch, lavender, candied garrigue, roasted meats, pepper, and seaweed like qualities on the nose, this full-bodied, straight-up decadent ’07 takes time to unwind, and shows the most depth, layers, and richness a full day after opening. At maturity, this may actually eclipse the brilliant ’98. It will age beautifully for 20+ years. Inner quote mark (6/2012)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Up there with the 2010 in terms of quality, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape dishes out loads of plum, lavender, ground pepper and licorice in its full-bodied, ripe and layered profile. Possessing a rock-star texture, no hard edges and beautiful concentration, it’s drinking nicely now, and should continue to evolve gracefully for another decade. (JD) Inner quote mark (8/2014)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Glass-staining ruby. Highly expressive, exotically perfumed bouquet of black raspberry, potpourri, smoky minerals and anise. A smooth, silky midweight with flavors of sweet red and dark berries complicated by notes of candied flowers and zesty minerals. Really clings on the finish, with the red fruit flavors refusing to let up. (JR) Inner quote mark (2/2010)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Crackles with an urgency atypical for the vintage, with juniper, cassis bush and tobacco notes that manage to be more prominent than the well of dark plum and currant fruit this has in reserve. Racy and invigorating, with the fruit's sappy intensity offset perfectly by the mouthwatering minerality. (JM) Inner quote mark (10/2009)
