Lot #269. Alain Jaume Domaine Grand Veneur Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Origines 2001

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 95 JD.
"Located in the northern portion of the AOC, with some vineyards near Beaucastel and Vieille Julienne, this estate was one of the first to use new oak for their red wines. Made by Sebastien Jaume, the 2001 Domaine Grand Veneur Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Origines is a blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre, and 20% Syrah, completely destemmed, and aged for 16 months in new oak barrels. The oak elevage shows here, but there’s more than enough fruit to handle it, and the wine carries gorgeous aromatics of blackberry and cassis fruits, spice, mineral, and classy oak. Full bodied on the palate and brilliantly put together, with a clean, seamless texture, good acidity, and a brilliantly focused finish where the wine’s structure becomes evident, this shows the best of an unabashedly modern upbringing. Still very young, with some upside . . ." Jeb Dunnuck, JebDunnuck.com, Mar 2011
