DESCRIPTION

 

Wine Spectator, September 2007Taut and reserved for now, with red plum and red currant notes held back by sinewy tannins and a racy minerality. Has solid length, and the flesh should fill out with cellaring. Best from 2008 through 2022. 92 points

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Jan/Feb 07
Medium red. Bright red berries on the nose, with subtle floral accents. In a fresh, elegant style, with vibrant raspberry and strawberry flavors and very fine, fully absorbed tannins. Finishes with silky-sweet red fruits, a bright mineral note and excellent length. 91-94 points

 

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, Feb 2007
The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Tradition, a 100% destemmed cuvee produced from 25 hectoliters per hectare and aged 80% in old wood foudres and 20% in tank, is dense purple with terrific fruit notes of raspberry, black cherry, and even some black currant and licorice. Medium to full-bodied, with good acidity, moderate tannin, and outstanding ripeness and length, this wine will be at its best in 2-3 years, and drink well for 12-15. 92-94 points
