La Joie

2007

Vintage

A lovely season for all of California, 2007 began with a mild winter with below normal rainfall and was followed by a dry spring. These conditions led to an early budbreak. Very consistent temperatures and weather throughout the growing season resulted in a fruit set of perfect, even grape clusters. Furthermore, berries were smaller this year, which means a greater skin to juice ratio and a big concentration of flavors. Harvest took place September 4th through September 27th.
– Pierre Seillan, Vigneron

Notes

An intense color in the glass; aromas of red and black fruits lead to a big, powerful wine that is lush yet balanced with round tannins. The bouquet and the palate will continue to develop over the next 10 years.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate

This utterly perfect, flawless wine reveals great intensity along with a wonderful perfume of roasted coffee, blueberries, blackberries, spring flowers, forest floor and crushed rock. Full-bodied and viscous without being heavy, the wine possesses admirable precision as well as good acidity and balance. This stunning wine is developing beautifully.
