The 2000 Domaine de la Vieille Julienne Châteauneuf-du-Pape is fantastic with rich, complex aromatics of plum and cassis fruit, star anise, leather and earthy, big garrigue notes on the nose. It is ripe but stops short of hitting the roasted spectrum and shows nice complexity paired with big, ripe fruit. The palate is full bodied with nice sweetness, a rich, savory texture and nice length on the finish. Beautifully mature and integrated, this is certainly in its drinking window and should hold for some time.
The 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. Kudos to winemaker/proprietor Jean-Paul Dauman for this masterpiece!
