Grand Veneur Chateauneuf du Pape Rouge Le Miocene 2016 (magnum)

An intense dark-ruby color. The nose develop aromas of ripe black fruit (such as blackberry), cherry and spice box. The palate reveals the presence of tannins, in high quantity and elegant. The finish is long and luxurious. This is the Châteauneuf du Pape expression, displaying all the characteristics of the terroir.

Soil type: Plots are located northern part of Châteauneuf du Pape and the vines are grown under organic process.The soil is marked by the violence wrought by the Rhone river. It consists of a layer of marine molasses of the Miocene period covered by alpine alluvium. The presence of a great number of rounded stones known as "galets" in the earth is evidence of the time when the Rhone, then a torrent, tore fragments of rock from the Alps and deposited them on the plain. The GRAND VENEUR cuvee will express year after year a great power and aromatic complexity.

 

Winemaking & ageing: Harvest is sorted by hand, destemmed and crushed. Fermentation temperature is controlled at 30°C. Vatting period of 18 to 20 days. Matured in vats and oak casks.

Review:

"Floral, garrigue notes mark the nose of the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Le Miocene. This full-bodied wine has ripe black cherry fruit, creamy tannins, tremendous power and length but loss of detail or precision. Licorice and almost amaro-like notes linger on the finish. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. - Joe Czerwinski"

- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Issue 238, August 31st 2018), 93 pts


"Accents of toast, spice and nut lend nuance to intensely ripe black cherry and preserved strawberry in this opulent wine. It's boldly fruity yet savory, shaded by umami tones of balsamic vinegar, soy sauce and earth. This full-bodied, complex wine is ready now but could improve through 2026 and hold further. - ANNA LEE C. IIJIMA"
