Domaine Grand Veneur Red Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2009
"....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...91-93" WA 10/10 "Very deep and dense, the 2009 Domaine Grand Veneur Châteauneuf-du-Pape has an almost searing level of minerality that’s paired with potent dark fruits, notes of flowers, licorice, and spice. With a full-bodied, powerful palate, this impressively concentrated and structured wine will require cellaring and should drink well for 15 to 20 years...91-93" Rhone Report 08/10
External Reviews for Domaine Grand Veneur Red Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape
This is an opulent Châteauneuf from the Jaume family's 123-acre estate, its lush floral notes high-lighting sweet, clear cassis flavors. It finishes with a sense of stoniness, savory and firm, drinkable now and cellarable for the next ten or so years.
A sleeper of the vintage, the 2006 Châteauneuf du Pape is a seductive effort offering plenty of earth, tapenade, and spice as well as black cherry and cassis fruit. Deep, full-bodied, rich, chewy, and totally seductive, it can be enjoyed over the next decade.
Bright purple. Exotically perfumed nose displays scents of fresh blackberry, white pepper, incense and potpourri. Lush and creamy on the palate, with sweet dark berry flavors supported by slow-mounting tannins. The peppery note repeats on the focused, brisk finish.
Rich but pure, with lovely crushed plum and violet aromas followed by layers of mesquite, roasted vanilla, melted licorice and pastis. Long and very silky through the finish. Still quite primal now, but should evolve nicely. Best from 2010 through 2022.
The superb 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape exhibits a deep ruby/purple color followed by notes of cassis, black raspberries, licorice, charcoal, and a hint of camphor. It possesses superb concentration, full-bodied richness, great purity and texture, and a long finish that lasts 35-40 seconds. Drink it over the next 12-15+ 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.
The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape is a winner. Inky blue/purple with notes of graphite, blueberry, blackberry, smoke, Provencal herbs and a bit of licorice and pepper, it is deep, full-bodied, with sweet tannins and loads of fruit and glycerin. Drink it over the next 12-14 years.
