Provence 2007: Chateuneuf du Pape
Reading that 2005 was a stellar year for the region's wine I wanted to load up our car before our return home. The two vineyards I wanted to go to: Vieux Donjon and Rayas are closed on weekends so always call ahead or you might be disappointed! Unfortunately only the 2005 whites have been released so far but we were able to do some tasting at "Le Verges des Papes" located near the Pope's Chateau which is now in ruins. The Pope had quite a view of the Rhone and the village below and must have really enjoyed his stay here. We know he loved his wine!
