So this is why the pope use to live here (Chateauneuf-du-Pape means ldquo;home of the poperdquo;). This wine is outstanding. This single vineyard bottling is a blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre and 20% Syrah aged in French oak. The nose has sweet aromas of blue raspberry and strawberries that seem to fill the room, not just the glass. Flavors of black plum, black cherry and spice (white pepper and sage) are abundant in the winersquo;s multiple layers. The tannins are firm but well balanced, giving the wine enough oomph to pair with meats as well as other meals that match a CDP. Drink over the next five years.

This supercuvee from Alain Jaume is ripe and modern in style, very smooth and polished. But its juiciness and richness do not lose sight of the power of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, and it has fine, dry tannins that leave a sense of good aging potential.

Alain Jaume manages the Grand Veneur domaine with his two sons, Seacute;bastien and Christophe. The domaine was founded in 1826 by Mathieu Jaume and includes 37 acres in Chacirc;teauneuf-du-Pape. This 2003 is a blend of estate fruit and is made up of 40 percent Grenache and 30 percent each of Syrah and Mourvegrave;dre, with yields kept at between 1.5 tons per acre and 2.25 tons per acre.

Ruby-red color. Intensely aromatic nose offers potent garrigue scents along with notes of jammy cherry, raw meat, fresh tobacco, bay laurel, licorice and sexy oak spices. Big, dense and sweet, showing intense dark berry flavors with complicating earthy and herbal accents. Focused, concentrated and long mdash; and lovely right now.

The 2003 Chacirc;teauneuf du Pape Les Origines is dazzling stuff and one of the vintagersquo;s top efforts. Deep purple to the rim with a gorgeous nose of blackberry liqueur intermixed with blueberries, smoke, licorice, roasted meats, and herbs, with wine has fabulous concentration, a multi-layered mid-palate, and a blockbuster finish with sweet tannin and plenty of opulence. Drink it over the next 12ndash;14 years.

Exhibiting a saturated ruby/purple color as well as a big, sweet nose revealing a surprising amount of oak, the 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Les Origines is a full-bodied, chewy, layered, large-scaled, low acid, concentrated offering. This open-knit Chateauneuf veers toward the more modern, international style of winemaking, but it unquestionably possesses all the typicity of Chateauneuf du Pape. Drink it over the next 12ndash;14 years.

Deep, bright red. Very ripe aromas of cassis, espresso, smoked meat and animal fur. Lush, fleshy and concentrated; supersweet grenache-dominated flavors of cherry and plum. Creamy but lively and elegant. Finishes long and firm, but turned a tad dry with aeration, showing menthol and herbal elements.
