Domaine de la Solitude Réserve Secrète 2007
99 WA-An utterly heavenly beauty is the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape la Reserve Secrete, which in 2007 is a blend of 55% Syrah and 45% Grenache. Despite the high percentage of Syrah, you wouldn’t know it from tasting this beauty, and it offers a killer perfume of black currants, graphite, garrigue and camphor. One of the most youthful wines in my tastings, it has the depth and purity to offer incredible pleasure even today, yet it’s 3-4 years away from full maturity and is going to be very long lived. Bravo!
