Domaine de la Vieille Julienne Chateauneuf du Pape 2000
|Brand||Domaine de la Vieille Julienne|
Wine AdvocateThe stunning 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape (14.5% alcohol) boasts a dark ruby/purple color as well as a super bouquet of sweet plums, figs, kirsch liqueur, and pepper. Layered, heady, and full-bodied, this hedonistic and intellectual turn-on can be drunk now as well as over the next 12-15 years.
Wine SpectatorMineral, wet earth, leather and smoke aromas, but also an earthy edge that hints at a traditional wine. Some intensity, this medium-bodied red turns a bit chewy due to the firm tannins on the finish. Best from 2004 through 2010. 2,500 cases made.
