Grand Veneur Chateauneuf-du-Pape Rouge

2017 Domaine Grand Veneur Chateauneuf du Pape Rouge Le Miocene - 93 PTS - TWCI

the wine cellar insider logo"Elegant, soft sweet, red fruits come along with thyme, pepper and herbs. Medium-bodied, fresh, and with a kirsch filled finish, this is quite nice now and will only get better with a few years of age. The wine was made using a blend of 70% old vine Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre."

2017 Domaine Grand Veneur Chateauneuf du Pape Rouge Le Miocene - 93 PTS - WA

wa"Another stellar vintage for this cuvée, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Le Miocene is a classic blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre from a mix of soil types, aged in older barrels and concrete tanks. It's ripe and plummy, with notes of black cherries and licorice, yet there's also a sense of freshness. Full-bodied and velvety in texture, it's already approachable but has the substance to age through 2030. Tasted twice (once blind), with consistent notes. - Joe Czerwinski"

jeb dunnuck logo 250"The traditional cuvée at this great estate is the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Le Miocene, and in 2017 it's a classic blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and 10% Mourvèdre, brought up mostly in concrete (there's a small amount in older barrels). It has a wonderful fresh, forward, delicious style as well as notes of black raspberries, garrigue, pepper, and hints of flowers. Pure, medium to full-bodied, upfront and ready to go, it's a beauty geared for drinking over the coming 8-10 years."

wine spectator 93 pts"Ripe and compact still, with a core of dark currant and plum puree flavors waiting in reserve while sleek graphite, Turkish coffee and ganache notes hold sway for now. There's fresh acidity and nice detail throughout, though, so let this unwind fully in the cellar. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Best from 2021 through 2032. 5,500 cases made, 750 cases imported. –JM"

wine enthusiast 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"

wa93"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"
