Chateauneuf-du-Pape trials and tribulations

From the excellent 2007 Chateauneuf-du-Pape Saturday tasting lineup @Vineyard Gate, I took several bottles to test in a couple of different settings. Results confirmed the high quality of these wines and the importance of *appropriate* food-and-wine pairing -- one was heaven, another - hell! Watch IronC yap.

These were the wines - if you love CdP, you'll love these!:
1. CdP Rouge, Moulin-Tacussel 2007 $40.00
2. CdP Rouge, Grand Veneur 2007 $44.00
3. CdP Rouge "Hommage a Henry Tacussel", Moulin-Tacussel 2007 $60.00
4. CdP Rouge "Les Origines", Grand Veneur 2007 $58.00
5. CdP Rouge "Vieilles Vignes", Grand Veneur 2007 $98.00

Btw, don't you just love the CdP bottles - they are so regal!
