2018 Domaine Isabel Ferrando Colombis  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 97

In any vintage this would be a serious wine, but in a difficult vintage like 2018, this is stunning.

2007 Domaine Isabel Ferrando Colombis  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 98

Mind blowing juice from start to finish! The explosive nose, with its herbs de Provence, black pepper, thyme and sprigs of mint topped with olive tapenade is off the hook. But the incredible wall of opulent, perfectly ripe, fruit, spice, kirsch liqueur and juicy plum notes, with its fat, juicy, opulent, viscous, silky textures must last at least 50 seconds. Little air is needed for this baby, pop and pour works just fine. If someone wanted to score this just a bit higher, I get it, because it is that good! 98 Points
