Description2000 Domaine de la Vieille Julienne Chateauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes, Rhone, France
WINE ADVOCATEThe 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes (15% alcohol) emerges from a cold terroir in the northern sector of the appellation. The blend is generally 85% Grenache and equal parts Syrah and Mourvedre. Its opaque purple color is followed by a sumptuous perfume of creme de cassis, kirsch liqueur, licorice, plums, minerals, and smoke. Mammoth in the mouth, but surprisingly structured and tannic for a 2000, it is more evolved than its 2001 counterpart. This profound Chateauneuf should evolve slowly and age magnificently for two decades. It is a monumental effort, but patience will be a virtue. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2025.
Kudos to winemaker/proprietor Jean-Paul Dauman for this masterpiece!
JEFF LEVEThis has slipped from its lofty peak and requires consumption over the next few years allowing you to enjoy all of its earthy, cherries, red plums, kirsch, herbs, and peppery nuances. Drink from 2022-2025.
