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.
Loaded with black cherry and plum fruit, this is an amply endowed Chandacirc;teauneuf-du-Pape that avoids excess. The fruit flavors remain fresh and vibrant, the oaking is understated and the wineandrsquo;s size is ably supported by soft tannins and just-sufficient acidity. Drink nowandndash;2020.
The beautiful 2009 Grand Veneur Chateauneuf du Pape Les Origines (a blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre and 20% Syrah aged in small barrels) offers notes of graphite, camphor, blackberries, creme de cassis, Provencal herbs and lavender. It is nearly as good as the brilliant 2007. Full-bodied and rich with nicely integrated tannins, acidity and wood, the 2009 will benefit from several years of bottle age and should evolve for 20 or more years.
Jaw-dropping raspberry ganache and plum fruit, along with cocoa, tar, hoisin sauce and mineral notes, are flamboyantly displayed, while an intense tarry, minerally drive extends the finish. Best from 2007 through 2025.
A luxury cuvandeacute;e at this price is becoming a rarity in Chandacirc;teauneuf, but Les Origines delivers the goods. Subtle cinnamon and nutmeg shadings frame densely packed black cherry flavors. Itandrsquo;s creamy in texture, with a long, velvety finish that lingers elegantly. Drink nowandndash;2020.
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.
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.
