External Reviews for Domaine de la Vieille Julienne Chateauneuf du Pape
While the beautiful 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape is already accessible, it will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring, and should last for two decades or more. It exhibits an inky/ruby/purple color, a great texture, and a gorgeous nose of boysenberries, bl... Robert Parker. A Proprietary Blend wine from Rhone in France. 2007 Domaine de la Vieille Julienne Chateauneuf du Pape 750ml
Very ripe, but focused and pure, with a gorgeous core of crushed plum, pastis and raspberry ganache notes stitched together with long, velvety tannins. Spice, fruitcake and melted licorice notes echo through the superlong finish. Drink now through 20... Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from Rhone in France. 2007 Domaine de la Vieille Julienne Chateauneuf du Pape 1500ml
A tight, tannic wine, with potential for aging. Already has a complex aroma, but the stiff texture and intense fruit will need time to open up for maximum enjoyment. Currant, black cherry, cedar, earth and spice flavors make it fascinating to sip. Best to cellar until 1998.
While the beautiful 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape is already accessible, it will benefit from 2andndash;3 years of cellaring, and should last for two decades or more. It exhibits an inky/ruby/purple color, a great texture, and a gorgeous nose of boysenberries, blueberries, blackberries, acacia flowers, licorice, and incense. There is wonderful freshness and vibrancy (because of the good acids) as well as a terrific finish. Jean-Paul Dauman is one of a handful of Chateauneuf du Pape proprietors who believes his 2005s are better than what he produced in 2007, and I find it difficult to disagree relative to this estateandrsquo;s wines. True lovers of Chateauneuf du Pape will probably want to have both vintages in their cellars.
The 2007 Cotes du Rhones Lieu-Dit Clavin red is one of the finest wines of the appellation. From an extraordinarily old vine parcel planted just in front of the winery, its dense purple color is followed by abundant berry fruit, licorice, earth, and ... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Proprietary Blend wine from Rhone in France. 2007 Vieille Julienne, Domaine de la Cotes du Rhone Lieu Dit Clavin 750ml
The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape exhibits a dense purple color as well as an expressive bouquet of black currants, licorice, kirsch, meat juices, and hints of spice box as well as lavender. Full-bodied, opulent, rich, and stunningly concentrated, it is one of the vintagersquo;s finest efforts. This beauty should provide plenty of pleasure over the next 15+ years. Always one of my favorite Chateauneuf du Pape estates to visit, proprietor Jean-Paul Dauman has made Domaine de la Vielle Juienne a brilliant reference point for this appellation. These are traditionally made, extraordinarily concentrated Chateaneuf du Papes created from old vine, biodynamically farmed sites and made from minuscule yields, hands off, no SO2 during vinification and aged in neutral tanks or old wood.
The core is opaque, the color deep and dark. This is an incredible wine which walks the tightrope of full extraction while maintaining a sense of structure and avoiding a tannic presence or jamminess. Flavors of dark fruit and kirsch are intertwined ... Chuck Hayward. A Proprietary Blend wine from Rhone in France. 2007 Domaine de la Vieille Julienne Chateauneuf du Pape 750ml
