The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Origines (1,500 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.

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... 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.

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.
