Description

    Chateauneuf du Pape 2007
    Sanctus Sanctorum, Clos St. Jean
    Magnum (1)
    "An extraordinary expression of old vine Grenache, it exhibits classic aromas of licorice and kirsch liqueur that are so intense they could fill a large room. Ethereal in the mouth, this is a profound example of how a wine of extraordinary concentration, multilayers of flavor, and remarkable intensity can be relatively light on its feet, never tasting heavy or tiring. This is an exceptional effort, but given how limited it is, and the fact that there are only magnums available, it will be about as difficult to find as it is getting a personal appointment with the Pope in Rome." (100pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #185, Oct 2009)

    "The largest scaled of the three, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Sanctus Sanctorum offers a 2009-like level of decadence, yet is more dense, concentrated and thick, with a massive mid-palate and texture that has nothing out of place. Boasting off-the-chart aromas and flavors of creme de cassis, ground pepper, melted licorice, loamy soil and exotic spice, it’s another desert island wine, in a lineup of desert island wines. Given that there are so few of these to go around, and that it’s bottled only in magnum, I know it’s difficult to open bottles, but don’t wait too long, as all three are insanely good – even today." (100 pts. Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate #214, Aug. 2014)
