At a perfect drinking stage, this wine has shed some baby fat, and is showing some development with hints of smoke, wet earth, mushrooms and garrigue. The fruit is ripe yet no longer explosive (had same vintage 2 years ago, and fruit was overbearing), there are so many alluring flavors and aromas yet all is in balance with alcohol. Delicious.

A brilliant vintage such as 98, an excellent wine well balanced with beautiful structure, complexity around a fine fruit and garrigue notes, generous it needs time in a carafe to get better - displaying a magnificent it gives nice maturity and a dense wine with power

Nothing like a magnum of Chateauneuf and good live music. Goes well with OAR

Out of half bottle. Killer. Plummy, mineral, and deep.

A little too young, but curiosity didn't kill this cat.

So bummed. This mag is massively corked. I bet a pristine bottle of this would be tasting great right now.

Baked red fruit, smoke, garrigue. More balanced than I was expecting for ‘07
