94 points ""(94-96) out of 100...The explosive, pedal-to-the-metal, super-duper 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape La Cuvee du Papet has an even darker ruby/purple color, with a glorious intense nose of roast meat and Provencal herbs interwoven with kirsch, black currant, loamy, earthy scents, and some pepper and spice. There is just about everything going on in the aromatics, suggesting that the taster is standing in an open-air marketplace in Provence. Aged 18 months in wood foudres and a blend of 80% Grenache and equal parts Syrah and Mouvedre, this cuvee exhibits huge body, loads of glycerin, fabulous concentration, but is not the least bit heavy or sloppy. This is a sensational expression of old vines that should prove to be their greatest example of this cuvee since their sublime 1990. Moreover, it should drink well and evolve for at least 20+ years." - WA" Best 2009-2038

93 points "Deep red. Explosively perfumed, captivating bouquet of red and dark berries, smoky Indian spices, pungent herbs and iron. Much more powerful, weighty and extroverted than the graceful 2006, with palate-staining dark berry and cherry-cola flavors and a late note of candied licorice. The echoing dark berry qualities refuse to quit on the aftertaste. (93-96pts. Stephen Tanzer)"
