Reviews & Scores

The 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape had not been assembled at the time of myvisit, so I had the privilege of tasting all the different component parts.My ratings were (91-93) for the Cinsault, (92-94) for the Counoise, (93-95)for the Grenache, (90-93) for the Syrah, and (94-96) for the Mourvedre.The Mourvedre and Grenache represent 65% of the final blend, so I tend tothink this wine will fall within the (93-95+) range. Even though Beaucastelrarely uses as much Grenache as the other famous Chateauneuf du Papeproducers, their 2007 is very much in keeping with the vintage. It exhibitsbeautiful freshness, superb maturity, great fragrance, full-bodied power,and more seamlessness than the 2006. This may be their greatest vintage ofBeaucastel since 2001 and 1998. It should age effortlessly for a minimum oftwo decades. Drink 2013-2028 - 93-95+ points

TASTING NOTES

The 2008 Falletto is an incredibly attractive and refined Barolo with a bouquet of red berry fruits and perfumed, almost sensuous floral characters and hints of white truffles. There is excellent balance, depth and definition on the palate supported by firm but very elegant tannins. Savoury red cherry and cassis notes and a refined mineral character on the finish give...
