Alain Jaume - Chateauneuf du Pape - Domaine Grand Veneur "Vieilles Vignes" - 2013 - 750 ml
sector of Châteauneuf du Pape.
GRAND VENEUR «Vieilles Vignes» cuvee include the estate oldest plots. Thanks to time and an organic growing, roots go very deep in the soil. Yields are naturally low and grapes highly concentrated.
boasts an inky/purple color in addition to a gorgeous perfume of crushed rocks,
jammy black fruits, charcoal and graphite. Blackberry aroma with an air of
dates pressed in alongside – this is sweet-noted. It is easy to appreciate, a
sleek and stylish start. The palate holds excellent fruit that runs well and
has kick. Its tannins move round freely and a minted finale comes forward. Its
dark fruit is tasty, darkens on the finish, where tar and char from its oak
enter. It is all very much together, a bundle of harmony, and will gain local
attributes as it ages.
An outstanding Chateauneuf du Pape which display the best of its terroir.
