Let us start with the bulging dossier that is Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2007. After all the fanfare and yes, the hype, what is to be made of 2007 at Châteauneuf? Merchants in England for one report very brisk en primeur sales of these wines. The lack of competition from Bordeaux is significant, and I would go as far as to define 2007 as the first year there has been a definite separation in buyers` minds between Bordeaux and the Rhône.
A very good vintage at late ripening Gigondas. The wines are growing into themselves, having started powerfully.
