Domaine Grand Veneur Côtes du Rhône 2007
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)
External Reviews for Domaine Grand Veneur Côtes du Rhône
The outstanding 2007 Cotes du Rhone Reserve red (80% Grenache and 20% Syrah) is a killer bargain. A deep dark ruby color is followed by copious quantities of kirsch liqueur, forest floor, licorice, and pepper notes. The expansiveness on the palate, broad, velvety mouthfeel, and full-bodied style are remarkable at this price point. Drink this beauty over the next several years.
From vineyards on the terraced and pebbled slopes north of Auvignon, this wine is a blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and 10% Mourvedre. It is a rich, full-flavored wine to serve with red meat, game or strong cheeses.
Ruby to purple in color, this wine has a nice bouquet of black pepper, blueberry and blackberry. Well-rounded fruit on the palate, though the aftertaste is somewhat limited. Overall, a nice wine at a decent price.
The 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape's deep ruby/purple-tinged color is accompanied by a sumptuous bouquet of kirsch, cassis, licorice, and smoke. With great fruit, a terrific texture, medium to full body, and a heady, opulent, alcoholic finish, it should provide immense pleasure over the next 8-10 years.
The impressive 2001 Châteauneuf du Pape still sells for a song. Its deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by a big, sweet nose of cassis intermixed with cherries, blackberries, and resiny spice box/roasted herb notes. Textured, rich, and pure, with a sweet mid-palate, medium to full body, and an unctuous personality, this beauty will drink well for 10-12 years.
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.
