A monumental effort meriting a perfect score the super-rich 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is a 4000-bottle blend of 50% Grenache 40% Mourvedre and 10% Syrah from 55- to 105-year-old vines and was aged for 18... A monumental effort meriting a perfect score the super-rich 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is a 4000-bottle blend of 50% Grenache 40% Mourvedre and 10% Syrah from 55- to 105-year-old vines and was aged for 18 months in small oak. The wine offers majestic blackberry and cassis fruit intermixed with kirsch licorice and subtle Provencal herbs in the background. It is akin to chewing meat in the mouth given its viscosity and thickness. This utterly amazing wine comes close to being over the top but it pulls back just in time. A massive Chateauneuf du Pape (even for a 2010) it needs 5-6 years of cellaring and should age effortlessly for 25-30 years. Bravo!

Always the largest scaled and most powerful of the lineup the 2010 Domaine Grand Veneur Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes is a blend of 50% Grenache 40% Mourvedre and 10% Syrah that saw 18 months in new oak. It is incredibly rich and layered with thrilling aromas of blackberry liqueur toasted bread spice-box and hints of garrigue all emerging from the glass. Full-bodied powerful and dense yet also laser like focused and pure this blockbuster wine needs to be hidden in the cellar for 5-7 years and it will have over two decades of longevity! As I said in the prior barrel review hats off to the Jaume family for this brilliant wine! 98+

Very ripe on the nose and palate offering roasted plum and cherry compote qualities and notes of oak spice and candied flowers. Exotic and densely packed with a velvety texture and slow-building licorice and bitter chocolate nuances. Finishes with string spicy bite and very good persistence leaving notes of cherry pit and star anise behind.

Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, July 2012
Ripe and packed but well-focused with a broad beam of linzer torte and boysenberry fruit backed by graphite violet and pastis notes. Picks up plenty of muscle and toasted spice on the finish showing lots of latent depth... Ripe and packed but well-focused with a broad beam of linzer torte and boysenberry fruit backed by graphite violet and pastis notes. Picks up plenty of muscle and toasted spice on the finish showing lots of latent depth in reserve. Very solid. Best from 2014 through 2024. -JM
