Alain Jaume & Fils Domaine Grand Veneur Les Origines Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2010 (1500ml)

$99.99

Another blockbuster is the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Origines. A blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 20% Mourvedre (45- to-95-year-old vines) aged in small oak, it exhibits an opaque purple color as well as a sweet bouquet of blackberries, espresso roast, ink and graphite. While clearly a modern-styled Chateauneuf du Pape, it retains plenty of the region's typicity and authenticity. It should drink well for 15+ years. Robert Parker

Dark brooding fruit. Roasted almonds on the back end. Tannins are present. Needs about an hour of decant time

Very intense kirsch, glace cherry, a plummy undertow, a little bit of thyme and a lovely rounded and polished mouthfeel. Very good

A bit too big and modern for me but well done. Maybe some more time will tame.

May be in a dumb phase right now. Pretty good but lacking any depth. Check back in a couple years.
