Jeb Dunnuck reviewed this for the Wine Advocate in 2017:
The entry level cuvee from this terrific estate is the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape, and it checks in as a mix of 75% “Grenache, 12% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre, with the balance other permitted varieties. I should have bought a case of this as it’s as classic Southern Rhône as they come and offers ripe, full-throttle notes of cured meats, black raspberries, incense and spice. Full-bodied, complex and loaded with character, it has impeccable tannin quality and will keep for another decade.”
Lots of recent happy tasting notes on CT too:

At its peak. Smooth tannins. Delicious black fruit. Long finish.

Lovely bright youthful CdP at a decade old. Wowed the crowd with unctuous earthy fruit, spice and heady cassis elements, garrigue…

Lovely and highly typical nose, without raisined or dried-fruit aromas. Burgundian red cherries, raspberries, blood orange, salty seaweed, garrigue. Silky texture, serious concentration, decent acidity, zesty freshness, and a top notch salty finish without any burning sensations. Not at all heavy – carries its 15,5% abv with grace. In a sweet spot now and over the next few years.
