Domaine Grand Veneur Chateauneuf du Pape Vielles Vignes 2021
96 POINTS: Jeb Dunnuck
"The flagship from this reference point estate is the 2021 Châteauneuf Du Pape Vieilles Vignes, which is based on 45% each Grenache and Mourvèdre with a dose of Syrah that spent 16 months in new oak and concrete tank. It brings more richness than just about every other wine in the vintage and has a deep ruby/plum hue as well as a ripe, concentrated, medium to full-bodied style revealing gorgeous blackberry and subtle cassis fruits, polished, ripe tannins, plenty of mid-palate depth, and terrific complexity in its licorice, peppery garrigue, and roasted meat-like aromas and flavors. It's a beautifully textured, layered, impressive 2021 to enjoy over the coming decade."
"This estate, under the leadership of Sebastien Jaume, continues to be one of the reference point producers for relatively modern styled Châteauneuf du Papes. In addition to their top tier efforts, the portfolio is loaded with smoking values at just about every price point."
