Tasting Notes

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! Drink 2009-2024.

Score: 94Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (185), October 2009

This dense ruby/purple colored wine reveals a sumptuous bouquet of kirsch, black currants, licorice, incense, and a hint of charcoal. Dense, opulent, and full-bodied, offering a hedonistic explosion of fruit and glycerin as well as the vintage's freshness, this substantial effort should drink well for 15+ years.

Score: 92/94Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (179), October 2008

Senechaux’s 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape is one sexy Chateauneuf that has notes of ripe black cherries, garrigue and flowers soaring from the glass. Ripe, full-bodied and showing the purity, complexity and seamlessness that’s the hallmark of this vintage (and the estate), it’s drinking at point but will keep for another 7-8 years with no issues.

Score: 93Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate (229), February 2017

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.-
