94 Pts Robert Parker - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The fabulous 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape (a blend of 64% Grenache, 19% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre, and the rest Cinsault and Vaccarese) boasts a deep plum/ruby/purple color as well as a super expressive perfume that represents the essence of Provence. Fresh bouquet garni, roasted Provencal herbs, licorice, black cherries, and black currant aromas soar from the glass of this full-bodied, incredibly deep, savory wine. Juicy and succulent with terrific acidity, freshness, and length, it is accessible now, and should continue to drink well for 12-15 or more years. Bravo to the Cazes family!" 94 Points - Robert Parker
"Fresh, pure and well-defined, with a beam of dark currant, fig and boysenberry fruit kept honest by graphite and black tea notes. The seamless finish sails on. Drink now through 2022. 7,000 cases made. âJM" 92 Points - Wine Spectator
"Deep red with a bright rim. Fresh red berry and spicecake aromas lifted by a floral nuance. Juicy, finely etched raspberry and cherry flavors provide very good palate coverage and are braced by tangy minerality. Gains weight with air and finishes long, with a sweet note of black raspberry." 90 Points - Josh Raynolds - International Wine Cellar
"Only one cuvÃ©e of red and white Chateauneuf du Pape are made.
Bernard Tranchecoste hopes to keep it that way. Then he feels he is able to make a good basis cuvÃ©e."
"90% Grenache, 5% Syrah, 5% Mourvedre and other varieties
Aged for 12-15 months in barriques - used before at Chateau Lynch-Bages.
You see some foudres in the cellar, but they are normally not used any more." - www.Chateauneuf.dk
"The terroir of ChÃ¢teauneuf du Pape enjoys an international reputation whose history dates back to the mid-fourteenth century, when the Papacy decided to move to Avignon. At the heart of this prestigious appellation, created in 1933 (it was the first âappellation dâorigineâ in France), Domaine des SÃ©nÃ©chaux is one of the oldest vineyards in the region."
"Located in the noble area of the "plateaus", the estate covers 27 hectares including 24 hectares of red grape varietals and 3 hectares of white. The property produces highly structured red and white wines which reflect the richness of an historic and unique terroir." -Chateau Lynch-Bages
