Chateauneuf du Pape Origines Grand Veneur 2009 (95RR) (750ML)
95 WA
"The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Origines 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...95" WA 10/11 "A brilliant wine and an unquestionable success in the vintage, the Domaine Grand Veneur Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Origines is a blend of 50 % Grenache, 20 % Syrah, and 30 % Mourvèdre that‟s aged for 18 months in new oak casks. Despite this elevage, the wine soaks up the oak and delivers a spectacularly pure array of crème de cassis, blackberry, spice, licorice, and toast. The purity and freshness are captivating, and the wine shows full body, beautiful focus, a classic, firm texture, and very silky, yet substantial tannin on the finish. Give bottles of solid 3-5 years and then drink over the following 15+ years...95" RR 9/11 "Very intense ripe red fruit, evident oak, cinnamon and briary fruit nose. Lovely richness, texture and fruit intensity with notes of Indian spice, liquorice, earth, bread and forest fruit...4 Stars" Decanter 1/12
