Editorial Reviews for Quinta Do Vale Meão Douro Doc
This smells stemmy and composty, all feral with iron and green pepper and even a touch of celery. Fairly nicely balanced, rich and broad with sufficient acidity to perk things up a touch on the palate. There’s some nice fruit here as well, clear with both mineral and very gentle vegetal tones accenting the blueberryish fruit on the mid-palate that becomes more obvious on the finish. The finish is a touch short and tough, though the blueberry fruit and violet nuances do show some aromatic lift. Hopefully time will help this because today it is a bit ordinary at best. 84pts
Deeply flushed in appearance, the wine presents an overt nose of non-fruit elements: leather, buffalo jerky and North African spices. Cranberries, red cherries, plums and potting soil chime in on the palate. The mouthfeel is soft but balanced with an easy-going juiciness. The excellent balance helps the flavors hold on through a medium-finish. 13% abv
Winemaker's Notes: Alcohol: 12.5 % Acidity: 5 g/l RS: 2.8 g/l Content: 0,75 l This is an excellent example of typical Austrian Grüner Veltliner: a dry and fresh white wine with influences of green apples, grapefruit and lemon. All this underlined by the spice of white pepper and ripe acidity
89 points: Wonderfully fragrant, with spiced currant, sweet aromatic wood, and a bit of camphor. The palate is bold, with anise and licorice over roasted cherry.The palate flavors dance around with achoholic energy. It has a good balance with fine tannins that support, and later coat the mouth.
Great with meat and spice. Bold flavors.
Lovely for drinking, plus held its own taste alongside a broccoli salad with a balsamic dressing.
Part of cellars wine club.
Crisp and clean with nice minerality - citrus.

Even Grand Veneur’s traditional cuvée shines in 2009, offering up notions of black cherries and chocolate liqueur. It’s full bodied and richly textured, with a long, velvety finish. Simply put, it’s plush and delicious, with no need to age it any further. Drink now–2020.
The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Origines (1,500 cases produced) is a blend of 50% Grenache, a whopping 30% Mourvedre and 20% Syrah with the latter two components spending time in new oak barrels. All of the fruit comes from vines that are nearly 70 years of age. A great wine with an opaque ruby/purple color, sensational fruit intensity and notes of graphite, lavender, licorice, lead pencil shavings and subtle smoke, it is full-bodied, rich and powerful with low acidity and sweet, velvety tannins. It should drink well for 15+ years.
The beautiful 2009 Grand Veneur Chateauneuf du Pape Les Origines (a blend of 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.
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.
Composed of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Cinsault aged in cement tanks, the dense ruby/purple-tinged 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Clos du Calvaire exhibits knock-out, explosive aromas of jammy red and black fruits intermixed with truffles, Provencal herbs, licorice and barbecue smoke. This deep, rich, full-bodied effort is one of the most voluptuously-textured, concentrated wines I have tasted from Francoise Mayard. It should drink well for 10–12 years.
This has a slightly beefy edge, with anise, roasted fig and plum flavors woven with a tobacco note. Drink now through 2013.
Vieux Château Certan is the oldest known estate in Pomerol, and dates back at least as far as the 16th century. Purchased in 1924 by Georges Thienpont, a wine merchant from Etikhove (Belgium), the property has been owned and managed by a family-owned company since 1957. The vines are in a single block located in the middle of the Pomerol plateau, world famous for its outstanding wines. The proportion of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon vines is very high for the appellation. The significant proportion of these two varieties goes back many years and did not change even though neighbouring estates turned almost exclusively to Merlot. Like the finest wines of the Médoc, Vieux Château Certan is best after 10 or 15 years in bottle. At this point, it is at its peak of elegance and refinement. Vieux Château Certan is sold only through Bordeaux brokers and shippers, who in turn distribute the wine worldwide
Schwarzes, nahezu undurchlässiges Purpur, satter und mineralischer Duft von Trüffeln, schwarzen Oliven, Brombeeren, schwarzen Johannisbeeren und schwarzen Kirschen. Dazu gesellen sich feinste Röstaromen, Bourbon-Vanille und Zartbitterschokolade. Am Gaumen druckvoll-nachhaltig, mit großartigem, fast öligem Schmelz - ohne dabei nur eine Spur schwerfällig zu wirken. Die präsenten, ultra reifen und smoothigen Tannine sind perfekt integriert; die Frucht ist zugleich unwiderstehlich satt, opulent, voller Schmelz und rassig zugleich und erinnert an einen Pomerol der Spitzenklasse. Man kann die Qualität und den Charakter der köstlichen Frucht sowohl schwarz- als auch als rotbeerig gleichzeitig beschreiben-dieses Zusammenspiel bringt die hier perfekte Balance aus Extrakt, Frucht, Tannin, Schmelz und Rasse, die diesen großartigen Wein definieren.
