Domaine la Millière Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes Cuvée Unique 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"The stunning 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes (from 80-100+ year old vines) gives some credibility to the vignerons’ arguments that in the drought-stricken 2009 growing season, the northern Chateauneuf du Pape parcels were less impacted than those in the south. Domaine La Milliere’s vineyards are all in the northern sector. The deep ruby/purple-hued 2009 possesses abundant blackberry, black cherry and cassis fruit intermixed with notions of camphor, truffles, garrigue and licorice. Dense, thick and rich, it is potentially one of the few 2009 Chateauneuf du Papes that will eclipse its 2007 counterpart. An opulent, voluptuous texture, long finish and heady combination of herbs and super-concentrated fruit make for a wine that can be drunk upon release or cellared for 12-15 years...92-95+" WA 10/10

Domaine La Millière:
Close by the ancient city of Orange, Domaine La Millière is located in the northern part of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation in Cabrières. Nestled amidst unspoilt nature where the vine is queen, La Millière is home to the fifth generation of a family in which the profession of winegrower has been passed down from father to son.

Deep ruby. Powerful aromas of black raspberry, licorice, garrigue and smoked meat. Dense and ripe, with good depth adding to the dark berry and licorice pastille flavors. Broad, chewy and ripe in style, reminding me a bit of a wine from 2007, showing... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

This is alluring, with warm ganache and black tea notes leading the way for velvety-textured fig sauce, plum and crushed blackberry fruit. The long finish is filled with licorice and anise. Drink now through 2023. 3,000 cases made. -JM Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from Rhone in France. 2009 Milliere, Domaine La Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes 750ml
