"The 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes reveals gorgeous aromas of spring flowers, crushed black cherries, ink, lavender, and spice. The wine is dense ruby/purple-hued, deep, and full-bodied with terrific concentration, a layered texture, and a stunningly long finish. It should drink beautifully young, yet age for 15 or more years. Young proprietors Aime and Michel Arnaud continue to turn out forward, complex, seductive Chateauneuf du Papes."

"Bright ruby. Intensely perfumed, with a spicy bouquet of raspberry, kirsch, smoky herbs and minerals. Open-knit red and dark berry flavors coat the palate and are supported by fine-grained tannins. Finishes with good sweetness, clarity and an echo of minerals. Here's another 2007 that will be very appealing on release."

I have never been disappointed with a bottle ofChateauneuf-du-pape. The only thing I don't like about it is that I cannot afford to drink it exclusively, but it sure makes staying home to cook a lot more enjoyable.
We tried this one with the Boeuf Bourguignon that we cooked for the first time and it was great!
