External Reviews for Domaine Grand Veneur Châteauneuf-du-Pape les Origines
The 2003 Châteauneuf du Pape Les Origines is dazzling stuff and one of the vintage's top efforts. Deep purple to the rim with a gorgeous nose of blackberry liqueur intermixed with blueberries, smoke, licorice, roasted meats, and herbs, with wine has fabulous concentration, a multi-layered mid-palate, and a blockbuster finish with sweet tannin and plenty of opulence. Drink it over the next 12-14 years.
Ruby-red color. Intensely aromatic nose offers potent garrigue scents along with notes of jammy cherry, raw meat, fresh tobacco, bay laurel, licorice and sexy oak spices. Big, dense and sweet, showing intense dark berry flavors with complicating earthy and herbal accents. Focused, concentrated and long - and lovely right now.
Alain Jaume manages the Grand Veneur domaine with his two sons, Sébastien and Christophe. The domaine was founded in 1826 by Mathieu Jaume and includes 37 acres in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. This 2003 is a blend of estate fruit and is made up of 40 percent Grenache and 30 percent each of Syrah and Mourvèdre, with yields kept at between 1.5 tons per acre and 2.25 tons per acre.
The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Origines is one of the vintage'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.
A candidate for wine of the vintage is Grand Veneur's 2006 Châteauneuf de Pape Les Origines. A dense plum/purple color is followed by an intoxicatingly heady perfume of ground pepper, spice box, garrigue, meat juices, and copious quantities of red and black fruits. In the mouth, it exhibits superb texture, silky tannins, and a long, full-bodied, powerful finish with no hard edges. Consume it over the next 10-15 years.
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.
Ruby-red. Sexy bouquet of cherry-vanilla, blackberry, cola and smoked meat. Fleshy and sweet, with lush red and dark berry compote flavors, velvety texture and slow-building tannins. As inviting as this is right now, it also has the material to reward patience.
