Domaine Grand Veneur Côtes du Rhône 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"...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

In 1320, Pope Jean XXII had the first vines planted in CHATEAUNEUF DU PAPE. But only in 1360 did the vine acquire a certain importance, first with the white wine drunk by Innocent VI, then with red wine; but these products remained little known. Only from the 18th century onward, did the vine occupy the territory and papal wine begin to be famous. In the Jaume family, the generations have perpetuated the profession of winegrower since Mathieu JAUME decided, in 1826, to grow vines in CHATEAUNEUF DU PAPE. The successions were assumed by Marius, Fernand and Roger. In 1979, Alain and Odile JAUME carried on the family tradition with the creation of the GRAND VENEUR WINERY. At the beginning, the vineyard extended over 22 acres. Over time, the vineyard grew to today's figure of nearly 135 acres spread in the CHÂTEAUNEUF DU PAPE, LIRAC, CÔTES DU RHÔNE VILLAGES "Les Champauvins", and CÔTES DU RHÔNE areas. In 2003, a new estate of 35 acres was acquired: the "CLOS DE SIXTE" Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée LIRAC. This appellation located 10 kilometres from Châteauneuf du Pape, is one of the thirteen Crus of the Rhône Valley. Over the years, the family has grown, too. Today, Sébastien and Christophe are gradually taking charge of the management of the estate. Sharing the family know-how, they have to put to maximum advantage their knowledge in wine-growing and wine-tasting. Read less

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.

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.

This is enticing, with Cavaillon melon, toasted hazelnut, citrus oil and crème fraîche notes on a full-bodied frame. Drink now.
