Domaine Grand Veneur Côtes du Rhône 2009
"...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
External Reviews for Domaine Grand Veneur Côtes du Rhône
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...

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.
