Clos du Mont Olivet Chateauneuf du Pape la Cuvee du Papet 2007, 750mL (WA98+, WS96) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Clos du Mont Olivet Chateauneuf du Pape la Cuvee du Papet

750mL

Vintage: 2007
Region: France--Rhone--Chateauneuf du Pape
Appellation: Chateauneuf du Pape

WA98+, WS96
Rated 98+ points by the Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape La Cuvee du Papet may will turn out to be their finest example since the 1998 and 1990. Stylistically, it probably comes closest to resembling the legendary 1990. Notes of roasted meats and smoked duck, with Provencal herbs, truffle, incense, licorice, and pepper, are all there, plus enormous quantities of red and black fruits. This is one heck of a complex wine, with a bouquet that is the essence of southern France, in particular Provence. Full-bodied, powerful, with the glycerin and level of richness covering some lofty tannins, this wine is already accessible and nearly impossible to resist, but my instincts suggest it will be absolutely glorious in another 4-5 years and keep for 15-20.`--Tasting Note by Robert Parker--More Wine Advocate notes about this producer: `One of the hallmark and legendary estates of Chateauneuf du Pape, having first estate-bottled wine in the early 1930s, Clos du Mont Olivet is a reference point for traditional, long-lived Chateauneuf du Pape. The estate is certainly one of the larger ones of the region, with nearly 70 acres under vine. In the very finest years, they produce their renowned Cuvee du Papet, whose composition varies, but it comes from their oldest vines, and usually has a minimum of 75% Grenache, although in some vintages, such as 1998 and their first vintage of this wine, 1990, it can be as high as 95% Grenache. It is aged completely in concrete vats and older demi-muids.`
