2007 Domaine de Ferrand Châteauneuf-du-Pape Châteauneuf-du-Pape Wine Tasting Note


2007 Domaine de Ferrand  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 95

The nose, with its licorice, cherry, black raspberry, herb and wild strawberry profile is beautiful. On the palate, the wine is rich, full, deep and with darker fruit than expected. Lush and long, with ample, silky, ripe, but not overripe fruit in the finish, this is in its sweet spot.

Vibrant ruby in color, the wine pops with aromatics of kirsch, jam, charcoal, licorice and pepper. Richly textured, the sweet, fresh, strawberry, and black raspberry notes are pure and precise. Expressive, lively and supple, this is really singing at the top of its lungs today. This is a super wine in a really nice style.
