Reviews For This Wine


 
Jancis Robinson | 18.5

Dense crimson. Full, open, treacly and animal too. Big, bold, for rugby players. This is very attention-grabbing, with not a little alcohol, but enough ripe (and sufficiently fresh) fruit to carry it. The finish is not too aggressively hot. Very well done.

The 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Fiancee is the estate's closest thing to an international stye of Chateauneuf du Pape that Julian Barrot produces. A blend of equal parts Grenache and Syrah, aged in a combination of tank and one- to two-year-old barrels, this wine is the most tannic and backward, a saturated purple color, with notes of licorice, tar, toast, smoke, and black currants. Full-bodied and still unevolved and youthful, this wine will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and keep for 15-20 years.

Extremely lush and still very primal, dripping with plum and blackberry fruit, while nearly endless velvety tannins carry this through the finish. Dense, but light on its feet, with spicebox, black tea, graphite and mineral notes echoing on and on. A hedonist's dream.

Lovely CdP. Subtle, not fat. Better since last tried.
