Parker Lauds 2007 Rhone
Parker lauds 2007 Rhone as “The most compelling vintage I have ever tasted.”
There has been a lot of buzz regarding Parker’s glowing appraisal of the 2007 vintage, bestowing a full one-hundred point score on an unprecedented ten different wines. In addition, having tasted the wine from the bottle, he has scaled up many of his preliminary scores; for example, Beaucastel reached 96 points whilst Clos de Papes achieved an astounding 99+.
“Last year, after tasting the 2007 southern Rhones… I stated it was the ‘vintage of a lifetime’… Tasting the 2007s out of the bottle has confirmed my thoughts – this is a truly historic and profoundly great vintage… This may be the most compelling vintage of any viticultural region I have ever tasted.” – Robert Parker, Wine Advocate no. 185.
High praise indeed, and it is apparent that these extolled wines will rapidly sell out completely. In Parker’s own words: “These wines will disappear fast – even in these hard economic times. If you love southern Rhone wines, which are the most underrated great wines of the world, you need to move fast, or forever hold your peace.”
