The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Origines is one of the vintage's most profound wines. Inky purple to the rim, showing some subtle influence of barriques, the wine has an impressive nose of chocolate, smoke, roasted meats, blueberries, and jammy black cherries with some licorice and smoke. The wine is full-bodied, powerful, but has silky tannins and good acidity. This wine should be drinkable upon release and last for 15 or more years.
A candidate for wine of the vintage is Grand Veneur's 2006 Châteauneuf de Pape Les Origines. A dense plum/purple color is followed by an intoxicatingly heady perfume of ground pepper, spice box, garrigue, meat juices, and copious quantities of red and black fruits. In the mouth, it exhibits superb texture, silky tannins, and a long, full-bodied, powerful finish with no hard edges. Consume it over the next 10-15 years.
Ruby-red. Sexy bouquet of cherry-vanilla, blackberry, cola and smoked meat. Fleshy and sweet, with lush red and dark berry compote flavors, velvety texture and slow-building tannins. As inviting as this is right now, it also has the material to reward patience.
The 2003 Châteauneuf du Pape Les Origines is dazzling stuff and one of the vintage's top efforts. Deep purple to the rim with a gorgeous nose of blackberry liqueur intermixed with blueberries, smoke, licorice, roasted meats, and herbs, with wine has fabulous concentration, a multi-layered mid-palate, and a blockbuster finish with sweet tannin and plenty of opulence. Drink it over the next 12-14 years.
Ruby-red color. Intensely aromatic nose offers potent garrigue scents along with notes of jammy cherry, raw meat, fresh tobacco, bay laurel, licorice and sexy oak spices. Big, dense and sweet, showing intense dark berry flavors with complicating earthy and herbal accents. Focused, concentrated and long - and lovely right now.
So this is why the pope use to live here (Chateauneuf-du-Pape means "home of the pope"). This wine is outstanding. This single vineyard bottling is a blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre and 20% Syrah aged in French oak. The nose has sweet aromas of blue raspberry and strawberries that seem to fill the room, not just the glass. Flavors of black plum, black cherry and spice (white pepper and sage) are abundant in the wine's multiple layers. The tannins are firm but well balanced, giving the wine enough oomph to pair with meats as well as other meals that match a CDP. Drink over the next five years.
Jaw-dropping raspberry ganache and plum fruit, along with cocoa, tar, hoisin sauce and mineral notes, are flamboyantly displayed, while an intense tarry, minerally drive extends the finish. Best from 2007 through 2025.
"...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
