Dom. du Grand Tinel Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee Alexis Establet 2005
"Kirsch liqueur, gorgeous notes of tapenade, spice box, earth, and cedar jump from the glass of the dark ruby/plum-colored 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Alexis Establet. This is a big, round, full-bodied wine which again seems surprisingly silky and plush for a wine from this vintage. It should drink well for 10-12+ years if not longer."
-Wine Advocate 90-93
"Ruby-red. Exotic, liqueur-like red and dark berry aromas show a balsamic accent. Deep, rich and sweet, with a powerful raspberry flavor and a late mineral note. Fresher on the finish than on the nose, with tangy acidity brightening the fruit. Offers outstanding length."
-International Wine Cellar 91-94
Vinification of wine from 74 hectares (56 ha in Chateauneuf and 18 in Cotes du Rhone) could not be done in these buildings in the wanted way and therefore the buildings have been renovated and extended in 2004-2006. So that today they have sufficient space for all the things needed in a modern winery and should have no difficulties in treating the yield fra all the 74 hectares, which make the domain one of the biggest in the appellation.
Today 3 children participate in the work at the domain: Christophe, Béatrice and Isabelle Jeune. The family also owns another property in Chateauneuf du Pape, Domaine Saint Paul. This domain has 14 hectares of Chateauneuf du Pape and is situated at Route Sorgues. The wines from here are not made at Grand Tinel but at Saint Paul.
The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
