Review:

"More herbal and berry-scented than other recent vintages, the 2014 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Pieds dans les Galets Vieilles Vignes is a charming, supple wine that should be consumed over the next few years. Raspberries and garrigue flavors linger elegantly on the finish. - Joe Czerwinski"

Grand Veneur Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes 2015 (Magnums)

Grand Veneur Chateauneuf Du Pape Vieilles Vignes is made from 50% Grenache, 40% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah

It boasts an inky/purple color in addition to a gorgeous perfume of crushed rocks, jammy black fruits, charcoal and graphite. Blackberry aroma with an air of dates pressed in alongside – this is sweet-noted. It is easy to appreciate, a sleek and stylish start. The palate holds excellent fruit that runs well and has kick. Its tannins move round freely and a minted finale comes forward. Its dark fruit is tasty, darkens on the finish, where tar and char from its oak enter. It is all very much together, a bundle of harmony, and will gain local attributes as it ages.
An outstanding Chateauneuf du Pape which display the best of its terroir.

The vines are 50 to 100+ year old. They are planted on red clay soils covered with pebble stones.

Harvest is destemmed and crushed. Fermentation temperature is controlled at 30°C. Vatting period of 18 to 20 days. Matured in concrete vats (40%) and oak casks (60%).


"The 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vielle Vignes carries a deep ruby/purple-tinged color as well as a classic bouquet of black raspberries, ground pepper, garrigue and hints of graphite. Gorgeously pure, elegant and seamless on the palate, with building tannin, it's impeccably balanced and shows the best of this vintage."

Review:

The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Pieds dans les Galets Vieilles Vignes delivers raspberry and garrigue notes, a medium to full-bodied palate and supple, velvety tannins. It's really drinkable, a far cry from super ripe and highly extracted examples of the appellation, but it's still delicious and a pure joy to drink, now and for the next decade. -  Joe Czerwinski Wine Advocate 92 Points
