User Reviews for Grand Veneur Chateauneuf du Pape les Origines Premier

Winemaker's Notes:

"Another blockbuster is the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Origines. A blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 20% Mourvedre (45- to-95-year-old vines) aged in small oak, it exhibits an opaque purple color as well as a sweet bouquet of blackberries, espresso roast, ink and graphite. While clearly a modern-styled Chateauneuf du Pape, it retains plenty of the region's typicity and authenticity. It should drink well for 15+ years...95" WA 10/12 "With more of everything, the 2010 Les Origines is a serious effort that has thrilling richness and depth. A blend of 50% Grenache and equal parts Syrah and Mourvedre that‟s aged for 18 months in new oak, it has a deep, rich bouquet of blackberry, crème de cassis, licorice, leather, graphite, and spice-box that gives way to a full-bodied, perfectly balanced Châteauneuf-du-Pape that builds on the palate, with fantastic richness, ripe tannin, and a finish that won‟t quit. Despite its stint in oak, it barely shows and the overall impression here is one of deep, concentrated, and pure fruit. This should be give 5-6 years of bottle age, and then consumed over the following 15 years or longer...96" RR 10/12
