2007 Grenache. I’m a believer occasionally when these G blends work like this. Wish more had this pure G magic. This has it.

In our blind Chateauneuf tasting, which turned out to be all Pierre Usseglio, this was near the top of eight for me and the groups' number one. I preferred the '03.

Super charged and hugely concentrated red and dark berries are balanced to perfection by pure and fresh acidity, spicy minerality, sous bois and dried herb flavors. Long.

Silky and seamless but warm. Brown sugar. Bourbon cherries. Not a ton of length on the finish. Good drink. Nothing profound...yet.

A delicious wine - dark cherries and plum - lovely fine tannins - a long life ahead of it!

Oh my. What a freak show. Over the top. Hot. Alcoholic. Unbalanced. VA. I don't get this wine. Not my cup of tea.
