From the Critics:

  • "The 2007 certainly looks to be a beauty. Deep plum/ruby to the edge, with a sweet kirsch liqueur-scented nose intermixed with some sandy, loamy soil notes and a bit of pepper and spice, this wine has impeccable purity, texture, and depth in a full-bodied, rather traditionally made style. It should drink nicely for 10-15 years. This is an under-the-radar estate run by the Laget-Royer family. I still have magnums of the 1989 in my cellar that are aging beautifully, so they are certainly capable of hitting some very high points in Chateauneuf du Pape." -90-92 points Robert Parker

    "Ripe and succulent, with a focused beam of blackberry and black currant paste notes laid over dark licorice, espresso and spice hints. The long, layered finish shows a touch of raisiny grip, but stays fresh enough. Best from 2010 through 2019. 3,000 cases made. –JM" -91 points Wine Spectator

    WINE:
    "The vineyards cover 17 hectares, including 1 hectare planted white varieties and are spread over 30 different plots all over the appellation. Most of the lieu-dits are situated in the western area...The regular red Chateauneuf-du-Pape consists of 75% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 5% Mourvedre, 5% Cinsault, and 5% Counoise. The grapes are partly destemmed. Vinification is traditional and the wine ages for 12 months in foudres." -Harry Karis, The Chateauneuf du Pape Book

    WINERY:
    "As long ago as early in the 1920s, Albert Laget's great-grandfather already sold almost all of his wine in bottle. In 1928 one of his wines won a Gold Medal at the Salon de la Gastronomie in Paris. Francois Laget, the 4th generation, took over from his father in 1978. Present time he runs the domaine with his wife Isabelle...the aging cellar goes all the way back to 1883." -Harry Karis, The Chateauneuf du Pape Book

    This scored 86-89 points by Josh Raynolds of the International Wine Cellar. - 90-92 Pts Robert Parker - The Wine Advocate
