External Reviews for Domaine Grand Veneur Côtes du Rhône
Full bodied and lushly textured, this is a top example of an affordable Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Raspberry and briary notes mingle easily on the nose, while the palate adds in hints of garrigue, spice and vanilla. Long, velvety and spice-laden on the finish.
The 2009 Grand Veneur Châteauneuf du Pape (made from the same blend as the 2008 - 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre) exhibits an inky/plum/purple color along with an impressive bouquet of Asian hoisin sauce, blackberries, black currants, sweet cherries, licorice and camphor. It is a dense, full-bodied, rich, heady wine with silky tannins, low acidity and abundant glycerin. Drink it over the next decade or more. Grand Veneur's two luxury offerings are among the finest wines of the appellation.
Vivid purple. Highly aromatic nose shows dark berry preserves, potpourri and white pepper. Lush, creamy blackberry and blueberry flavors are lifted by peppery spices and framed by velvety tannins. The sappy finish clings with very good authority and repeats the blueberry note, with a late note of candied licorice building with air.
The 2007 Châteauneuf de Pape (70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre from 65-year old vines) is an exceptionally strong effort. Aged in tank (80%) and small oak barrels (20%), it is a dense, full-bodied wine revealing an inky/purple color along with notes of graphite, blackberries, and cassis. With a sumptuous, layered, full-bodied texture, sweet, velvety tannins, and zesty freshness as well as acidity, it should drink well for 12-14 years.
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.
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.
Still showing some grip up front, with a firm, raisined edge of plum skin that's holding the core of crushed raspberry and blackberry fruit at bay for now. Additional licorice and spice notes hang in the background. Needs a little time to soften. Best from 2012 through 2018.
93 points Rhone Report: ...shows fantastic dark fruit paired with plenty of edge and cut. Black cherry, cassis, new leather and grilled meat notes are supported by spice and subtle garrigue. Medium to full bodied with nice concentration, lots of pure, textured fruit and a long finish... should drink well over the next 15 years. (Aug 2009)
