If the warm spring followed by a cold and rainy summer augured a delicate year for the whole French vineyard, the sunny month of September has been a bless allowing grapes to ripen successfully, making the 2007 vintage a pretty good year, especially for whites.
Indeed, although the quality of the 2007 wines (rather delicate, acidic and low in alcohol) is very good, there is a slight difference between the red wines and the white wines. This is particularly obvious looking at the wine tasting notes of the 2007 vintage. This is true in the vineyards of the northern half of France, such as those producing the Loire wines, the wines of Alsace and the Burgundy wines, but also the later varieties such as Chenin Blanc. This trend is well-confirmed when we look at the 2007 vintage on Bordeaux wines: whites and sweet wines are very successful, whilst Bordeaux reds are less impressive (however, it should be said that globally the Grands Crus of Saint Emilion and the Pomerol Grands Crus remains very pretty wines thanks to their terroirs). In short, it is in the Rhone Valley vineyard that we find the greatest wines of 2007, notably in the Chateauneuf du Pape designation which delivers generous wines, supported by a good acidity.
You want to buy a bottle of wine from the 2007 vintage but you do not know which wine to choose? You can choose among all the vineyards for white wines without any doubt. On the reds, we advise you to look at the vineyards of the south of France: 2007 Languedoc Roussillon, 2007 Bandol, 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape or even 2007 Cote Rotie. Are you a Burgundy wine lover? The Burgundy red wines from the 2007 vintage will be consumed quickly while the aging potential time for white wines will be longer. Same pattern for the 2007 Bordeaux wines: if the great vintages will quickly reach their peak, the wines of Sauternes 2007 will deserve to be kept in the cellar.
