The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Origines is one of the vintagersquo;s most profound wines. Inky purple to the rim, showing some subtle influence of barriques, the wine has an impressive nose of chocolate, smoke, roasted meats, blueberries, and jammy black cherries with some licorice and smoke. The wine is full-bodied, powerful, but has silky tannins and good acidity. This wine should be drinkable upon release and last for 15 or more years.

A luxury cuveacute;e at this price is becoming a rarity in Chacirc;teauneuf, but Les Origines delivers the goods. Subtle cinnamon and nutmeg shadings frame densely packed black cherry flavors. Itrsquo;s creamy in texture, with a long, velvety finish that lingers elegantly. Drink nowndash;2020.

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.

The 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Origines may turn out to be one of this estatersquo;s finest cuveacute;es, although one should not overlook the 2006 Les Origines. A luxury cuveacute;e sold at a reasonable price, the 2007 boasts a dense blue/purple color as well as a sweet perfume of blueberries, charcoal, creme de cassis, graphite, smoked meats, and herbs. Dense, full-bodied, and exceptionally pure, with a multilayered texture, moderate tannin, and a stunning finish, it will benefit from 2ndash;4 years of cellaring, and should drink well for 20ndash;25.

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.

Delicious. This full-bodied, elegant Chacirc;teauneuf is a beauty. Refined and smooth tannins backed by plenty of ripe and spicy fruit, dried fruitcake, smoke, leather and mineral mdash; but the overall impression remains the ripe fruit, which coats the palate. Balanced finish. Best from 2005 through 2013.

Opaque purple. Pungent aromas of blackberry, blueberry, incense and potpourri. Offers brighter red fruits on the palate, with sweet floral pastille and smoky mineral qualities adding complexity. Becomes more energetic on the sappy, precise, very long finish.
