The 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Les Origines appears to be the finest offering yet produced by Jaume. An inky purple/black color is followed by an awesome nose of licorice, espresso, chocolate, black cherry jam, and pepper. Super-concentrated and pure, with great finesse, sweet tannin, and monster power, it is a terrific Chateauneuf that should hit its prime in 2ndash;3 years, and last for two decades. Anticipated maturity: 2006ndash;2020.
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.
Both of Grand Veneurrsquo;s bottled 2001 Chacirc;teauneuf du Papes are outstanding effortshellip; The top offering, the 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuveacute;e Les Origines exhibits an even more saturated ruby/purple color as well as glorious aromas of acacia flowers, blackberries, licorice, chocolate, and kirsch liqueur. With fabulous richness and purity, medium to full body, undeniable elegance for its size, and a long, textured, multidimensional finish, it is the finest Les Origines Alain Jaume has yet produced. Anticipated maturity: 2006ndash;2016.
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.
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.
Beautiful traditional Chacirc;teauneuf, all built around mineral, smoke, leather and plum aromas. Good balance in this medium- to full-bodied red thanks to the clean, fresh fruit. The tannins are ripe but clamp down on the finish mdash; a wine created for a great steak! Drink now through 2020.
The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Origines is one of the vintageandrsquo;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.
