2007 Domaine Grand Veneur Chateauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes, Rhone, France

$99.99 USD $112.99 USD

The newest special cuvee (introduced in 2006) is the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes (50% Grenache, 40% Mourvedre, and 10% Syrah). Made from 50- to 100+-year-old vines and aged 18 months in small oak barrels, it is potentially one of the longest lived wines of the vintage. This exquisite, dense purple-colored effort reveals intense but restrained notes of cassis, kirsch, lavender, licorice, and graphite. A wine of great intensity as well as remarkable finesse and elegance, is a full-bodied Chateauneuf that will require plenty of patience.

98 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

A massive wine and even more concentrated than the Les Origines, the 2007 Domaine Grand Veneur Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes shows decadent, rich notes of cassis, blackberry, roasted meat, licorice and espresso. The palate is full bodied with serious fruit, fresh acidity, upfront structure and a blockbuster finish.

96 Points Jeb Dunnuck

Very ripe and forward, with flashy fig, mocha and licorice notes pushed by sweet toast and spice. Round and juicy through the full-bodied finish, with the fruit hanging on nicely.
