"...50% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre and 20% Syrah aged in small barrels) offers notes of graphite, camphor, blackberries, creme de cassis, Provencal herbs and lavender. It is nearly as good as the brilliant 2007. Full-bodied and rich with nicely integrated tannins, acidity and wood, the 2009 will benefit from several years of bottle age and should evolve for 20 or more years...92-95" WA 10/10 "Tasted from tank, the stunning 2009 Domaine Grand Veneur Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Origines shows the hallmark purity of this estate as well as perfumed, intense aromatics, full-bodied power, loads of concentration and a structured, age-worthy feel. As with a number of ‘09s, this will require 5 to 7 years cellaring and should drink well for 20 years...94-97" Rhone Report 08/10

Red wine 2009 Domaine Grand Veneur Chateauneuf-du-Pape Les Origines France Region: Rh Free Shipping Insurance
The 100% Roussanne cuvandeacute;e, the expensive but very white Burgundy-like 2009 Grand Veneur Chateauneuf du Pape La Fontaine blanc comes from 70+-year-old Roussanne vines and is aged 6andndash;8 months in 600-liter demi-muids. It exhibits intense aromas of flowers, honeysuckle, candle wax, rose water, orange marmalade and apricots. Full-bodied with great acidity, the wood is pushed way to the background.
The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape (a 3,500 case blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre from nearly 10 year old vines) exhibits abundant notes of sweet cassis, licorice, kirsch, garrigue and tobacco leaf in a full-bodied, layered, opulently textured style. This hedonistic turn-on should continue to drink well for a decade or more.
The 2009 Grand Veneur Chateauneuf 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, swee...

Red wine 2009 Domaine Grand Veneur Chateauneuf-du-Pape Les Origines 3 L France Region: Rh Free Shipping Insurance
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.
Even Grand Veneur’s traditional cuvée shines in 2009, offering up notions of black cherries and chocolate liqueur. It’s full bodied and richly textured, with a long, velvety finish. Simply put, it’s plush and delicious, with no need to age it any further. Drink now–2020.
