A blend of 65% Grenache and the rest Cinsault, Syrah, Mourvèdre, and Clairette, the 2009 Domaine de la Vieille Julienne Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a beauty and delivers beautifully dense, pure black fruits, black licorice, violets, and mineral aromas on the nose. Chewy and rich on the palate, with solid mid-palate concentration, full body, and a fresh, savory finish, this classic Châteauneuf-du-Pape should benefit from short term cellaring, and have upwards of 15 years of longevity.
"This captures terrific ripeness, intensity and density with stunning mouthfeel, as layer upon layer of fig sauce, braised plum, cassis, cherry eau de vie and pastis glide along together, with notes of spice, ganache and graphite hanging in reserve. The very long finish has cut and precision, despite its weight. Should age effortlessly. Best from 2014 through 2035. 2,300 cases made."
"The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape from the domaine has turned out much better than I predicted last year. A blend of 70% Grenache and the rest Syrah, Counoise, Mourvedre and Cinsault from the very northern sec-tors of Chateauneuf du Pape, on terraces just north of Chateau Cabrieres and Domaine Mas de Boislauzon, this deep purple wine has a gorgeous nose of fresh blueberries and kirsch, with almost meaty, chewy rich-ness, loads of glycerin, full body, stunning concentration and purity. It was bottled in May and should have 15 or more years of aging potential."

As the name suggests, the wine region was named after the new papal home, referring to the period of time in the 1300's when the pope resided in Avignon instead of Rome.
