The 2007 Barbaresco Crichët Pajé is the first young Crichët Pajé I can remember tasting that still retains freshness, energy and some primary fruit. Sweet red cherry, plum, rose petal, mint and sweet spices give the 2007 much of its sensual, open-knit personality. The 2007 is endowed with striking inner perfume, silkiness and a level of total finesse I have not seen before. This is an exceptionally gracious Crichët Pajé, and yet there is plenty of tannin on the back end. Today, the 2007 is superb. The 2007 spent a bit less time in oak than previous editions and finished its aging in a combination of cement and stainless steel.
Anticipated maturity: 2017-2037
