An excellent barrel sample, the 2010 Domaine Grand Veneur Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and 10% Mourvèdre. The Grenache is aged all in vat, the Syrah in older barrels, and the Mourvèdre in 10% new oak. The wine shows a cl... Rhone Report, The.

Rich but pure, with lovely crushed plum and violet aromas followed by layers of mesquite, roasted vanilla, melted licorice and pastis. Long and very silky through the finish. Still quite primal now, but should evolve nicely. Best from 2010 through 2022.
Yummy red, with licorice, red berry and cherry jam character. Polished red, the wood nicely integrated, this is appealing but not very complex. Drink now through 2009.
Bright purple. Exotically perfumed nose displays scents of fresh blackberry, white pepper, incense and potpourri. Lush and creamy on the palate, with sweet dark berry flavors supported by slow-mounting tannins. The peppery note repeats on the focused, brisk finish.
The superb 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape exhibits a deep ruby/purple color followed by notes of cassis, black raspberries, licorice, charcoal, and a hint of camphor. It possesses superb concentration, full-bodied richness, great purity and texture, and a long finish that lasts 35-40 seconds. Drink it over the next 12-15+ years.
The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape looks to be a winner, one of strength, richness, elegance, but full-bodied power and plenty of deep, smoky black cherry and blackberry fruit intermixed with some herbs, roasted meats, spice, and earth. It is a beautiful wine that will probably benefit from 1-2 years of bottle age and drink well for 12-15 years. Readers have to distinguish between the negociant wines of Alain Jaume, which are under the label "Alain Jaume," and his estate wines, which appear under the "Grand Veneur" label. In both cases the quality is extremely high and unlike many estates where prices have dramatically soared over recent vintages, Grand Veneur's proprietor, Alain Jaume, continues to offer very fair value for the quality.
