  1. 2000 Domaine de la Vieille Julienne Reserve (Châteauneuf-du-Pape)

    1. This is one sexy pleasure machine of Chateauneuf du Pape. Plush, silky textures, mouth filling levels of fruit and a complex set of aromatics including smoke, licorice, blackberry, clay and fresh herbs. This is drinking at peak.

    2. I love this wine! That is more than enough of a tasting note for anyone that knows me. It does not display quite the same level of flamboyance it showed in its youth, but the wine is explosive in its aromatics, with a melange of dark red berries, spice and earth. On the palate, the wine fills your mouth with concentrated sips of extremely ripe and over ripe black raspberries, kirsch, jammy plums and spice. This is at the perfect state of maturity, with the right amount of freshness and secondary character.

    3. 2000 Vieille Julienne Reserve might not have been a fully correct bottle. The pepper, dark cherry and garrigue, kirsch and eary aromas were present, but the palate was shorter than I remembered. The wine was good, but it was not the stunning example of 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape from this producer I have tasted before

    4. Dark ruby in color, the powerful, attention grabbing perfume offers jammy black raspberries, kirsch, pepper, blueberry and black cherry liqueur aromas. From 100% old vine Grenache, this powerful, packed and stacked Rhone wine coats your palate with deep, spice filled black cherry, kirsch and jammy flavors. This voluptuous Chateauneuf du Pape is drinking perfectly today.

    5. 00 Vieille Julienne Reserve remains one of the potential benchmarks for the vintage. Fresh ground pepper, jammy blackberries, black cherry, red cherry, white cherry, kirsch and a myriad of intense liqueur aromatics explode from your glass. This palate staining, mouth coating wine offers freshness, massive levels of concentrated fruit and a finish that lasts for close to 60 seconds! This is probably close to fully mature, but there is no hurry to drink up. It should remain at this plateau for at least another 5-8 years.

    6. Essence of liquefied Chateauneuf Du Pape! This is off the charts. The mouth feel is thick, rich, opulent and voluptuous. It has to be experienced to be believed! Perfectly balanced with a seemingly endless finish. Few expensive wines are worth the money. But, this wine is truly worth the price of admission.
