International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 148

($70; vinified with 50% whole clusters) Bright ruby. Exotic, seductively perfumed bouquet of raspberry, mulberry, incense, dried flowers and spicecake. Lush, chewy dark fruit flavors envelop the palate, with juicy acidity adding definition and back-end cut. At once rich and energetic, finishing with excellent thrust and lingering spiciness. Sabon said that he prefers this to his 2005 version now and for the near to mid term. "The '05 needs to be forgotten for a long, long time," he told me.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 179

The explosive, pedal-to-the-metal, super-duper 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape La Cuvee du Papet has an even darker ruby/purple color, with a glorious intense nose of roast meat and Provencal herbs interwoven with kirsch, black currant, loamy, earthy scents, and some pepper and spice. There is just about everything going on in the aromatics, suggesting that the taster is standing in an open-air marketplace in Provence. Aged 18 months in wood foudres and a blend of 80% Grenache and equal parts Syrah and Mouvedre, this cuvee exhibits huge body, loads of glycerin, fabulous concentration, but is not the least bit heavy or sloppy. This is a sensational expression of old vines that should prove to be their greatest example of this cuvee since their sublime 1990.

Wine Spectator Author: James Molesworth

Remarkably dense, but silky at the same time, with captivating mouthfeel to the layer upon layer of roasted black Mission fig, sandalwood, black tea, macerated currant fruit and plum sauce, all held together by finely beaded acidity. Latent grip shows up at the very end, boding well for long-term cellaring.
