  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

    ($105) Vivid ruby. Exotic, complex nose displays scents of raspberry, smoky herbs, anise and gingerbread. Supple red and dark berry preserve flavors are seamless and alluringly sweet, and nicely lifted by tangy minerality. Manages to be both rich and lively, finishing with impressive clarity and persistent spiciness.

    Ripe but streamlined, with gorgeous layers of crushed black cherry, macerated currant and warm fig flavors that stretch over fresh minerality and a long finish filled with tobacco, spice and bittersweet cocoa. This has energy and drive to go with its ripeness. 1,500 cases made.

    The thickest, richest and most extravagant Cuvee du Mon Aieul ever produced is unquestionably the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul! Almost all old-vine Grenache brought up in tank (no new wood), it tastes like the raw essence of Grenache and has off-the-hook aromas and flavors of black raspberries, cassis, cured meats, licorice and incense. Massively rich and textured, with a full, layered mid-palate and sweet tannin, it's still an adolescent that drinks well today, due its insane amount of fruit, but will be even better in 2-3 years and have 20-25 years of overall longevity.

    Saturday, April 23, 2011 - HC Grenache Tasting (Harvard Club of Boston): I must concede I was a little nervous decanting this one. Nearly every 2007 CDP we've tried has been an alcoholic mess. This wine made up for all the previous disappointments. Wow! Without a doubt my wine of the year and perhaps one of the top wines of my life. Ripe, sweet, powerful and perfectly balanced. A beautiful bouquet of sweet cherries, vanilla, and wild strawberries. The body was opulent, but not over extracted. An extraordinary layered taste of sweet black fruits, black raspberry, and creme brulee. Everything about this wine was in balance. Hard to imagine it will get better over time, but amazingly I think it will. A clear #1 WOTN for everyone.
