A luxury cuvée at this price is becoming a rarity in Châteauneuf, but Les Origines delivers the goods. Subtle cinnamon and nutmeg shadings frame densely packed black cherry flavors. It's creamy in texture, with a long, velvety finish that lingers elegantly. Drink now-2020.
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.
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.
Glass-staining violet. Showing a lot of oak on the nose, along with deep raspberry and blackberry scents and a smoky mineral quality. Lush, creamy and rich in the mouth, with sweet red and dark berry compote flavors, slow-building tannins and serious finishing punch. This sexy fruit bomb will be even better if the oakiness recedes with some bottle age.
A brilliant wine and an unquestionable success in the vintage, the Domaine Grand Veneur Chateauneuf-du-Pape Les Origines is a blend of 50 % Grenache, 20 % Syrah, and 30 % Mourvedre thats aged for 18 months in new oak casks. Despite this elevage, the... Rhone Report, The. A Proprietary Blend wine from Rhone in France. 2009 Domaine Grand Veneur Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Les Origines 1500ml
Delicious. This full-bodied, elegant Châteauneuf is a beauty. Refined and smooth tannins backed by plenty of ripe and spicy fruit, dried fruitcake, smoke, leather and mineral - but the overall impression remains the ripe fruit, which coats the palate. Balanced finish. Best from 2005 through 2013.
