Domaine Grand Veneur Chateauneuf du Pape 2005, 1.5L (WA93, WS92) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Domaine Grand Veneur Chateauneuf du Pape

1.5L

Vintage: 2005
Region: France--Rhone--Chateauneuf du Pape
Appellation: Chateauneuf du Pape
Condition: wisl, scl

WA93, WS92
Rated 93 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape is performing even better than it did last year. The wine has a dense ruby/purple color and a sweet nose of boysenberry, blackberry, and a hint of kirsch, with some loamy soil notes, ground pepper, and some incense and camphor. Ripe, full-bodied, with moderate tannins and a gorgeous, layered mouthfeel, this is a beauty that will be at its best in 1-3 years and last for up to 15. Readers need to differentiate between the estate wines, which appear under the `Domaine Grand Veneur` name, and the burgeoning number of high quality negociant wines made by this producer, which are bottled under the name `Alain Jaume.` First the estate wines: these two brilliant vintages for Jaume continue an almost unbroken record of highly successful wines that goes back well over a decade (and they are still fairly priced). This is definitely a modernist take on Chateauneuf du Pape, but the wines never lose the soul and typicity of Provence. They are impeccably well-made, pure, and deeply colored. Importer: Kysela Pere et Fils, Winchester, VA; tel. (540) 722-9228` -- Tasting note by Robert Parker
