Domaine de la Vieille Julienne Côtes de Provence 2004
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.Add winemaker's notes

This domaine, which can produce huge, heavy, black-colored Châteauneuf du Papes, bottles its wines as they are sold, resulting in cuvées of the same vintage spending anywhere between 18 months and 10 years in large foudres. This is troublesome, as the wine tends to oxidize and lose its fruit after 2-4 years in wood. Fortu- nately, that may be changing as the young son of Monsieur Daumen has taken over. producing a cleaner, less rustic style of wine that is, nevertheless, rich, full-bodied, and ageworthy. The 1990 displays a chocolate, smoky, cassis-scented nose, and peppery, powerful flavors that are oozing extract, glycerin, and tannin. It is impressive for its size and potential longevity.
There is only one cuvee of Chateauneuf du Pape in 2004, the Tradition, which is everything from the estate, a blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, and the rest Counoise and Cinsault. Remarkably, the Grenache comes from 80- to 100-year-old vines, the Syrah from 40-year-old vines. It is one of the vintageandrsquo;s superstars with the inky/purple-colored wine offering up floral, sweet cassis notes intermixed with raspberry and cherry. The wine is full-bodied, richly textured, with beautiful floral and black fruit notes on the palate, full body, fabulous texture, and a ripe, sweet, expansive finish with relatively noticeable tannin. Give it 2andndash;3 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 20 years.

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 2020.
Red wine - 2004 - Domaine de la Vieille Julienne Chateauneuf-du-Pape - France - Region: Rh
A great core of fig, blackberry and black currant fruit, with racy acidity and fine-grained tannins that are the hallmark of 2004, this shows flashes of graphite, spice and mineral on the long, precise finish. Big step up from the 2003. Best from 2007 through 2026.
