Rhone Report - The Rhone Report, September 2011
A brilliant wine and an unquestionable success in the vintage the Domaine Grand Veneur Chateauneuf-du-Pape Les Origines is a blend of 50 % Grenache 20 % Syrah and 30 % Mourvedre that's aged for 18 months in new oak casks... A brilliant wine and an unquestionable success in the vintage the Domaine Grand Veneur Chateauneuf-du-Pape Les Origines is a blend of 50 % Grenache 20 % Syrah and 30 % Mourvedre that's aged for 18 months in new oak casks. Despite this elevage the wine soaks up the oak and delivers a spectacularly pure array of creme de cassis blackberry spice licorice and toast. The purity and freshness are captivating and the wine shows full body beautiful focus a classic firm texture and very silky yet substantial tannin on the finish. Give bottles of solid 3-5 years and then drink over the following 15+ years.

The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Origines (1500 cases produced) is a blend of 50% Grenache a whopping 30% Mourvedre and 20% Syrah with the latter two components spending time in new oak barrels. All of the fruit comes... The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Origines (1500 cases produced) is a blend of 50% Grenache a whopping 30% Mourvedre and 20% Syrah with the latter two components spending time in new oak barrels. All of the fruit comes from vines that are nearly 70 years of age. A great wine with an opaque ruby/purple color sensational fruit intensity and notes of graphite lavender licorice lead pencil shavings and subtle smoke it is full-bodied rich and powerful with low acidity and sweet velvety tannins. It should drink well for 15+ years.

Dark and winey with velvety layers of crushed plum blueberry and anise supported by a strong graphite note and carrying through the long spice- and violet-filled finish. Drink now through 2018.
