2017 Alain Jaume Chateauneuf du Pape Vieux Terron - 90 PTS - WA

wa"The Jaume family's négociant cuvée of Châteauneuf du Pape is another solid effort. The 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieux Terron features raspberry fruit accented by citrus zest and mulling spices. It's full-bodied but less concentrated and textured than the Grand Veneur estate bottlings, fading a bit quickly on the finish. Drink it over the next 6-7 years for its forward charm. - Joe Czerwinski"

2017 Alain Jaume Chateauneuf du Pape Vieux Terron - 90 pts - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"The same blend as the traditional cuvée (70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and 10% Mourvèdre), the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Vieux Terron spent 16 months in 90% concrete tanks, with 10% in older barrels. Deep purple-colored, it offers more blackcurrants, ground pepper, earthy minerality, and chocolate as well as medium to full body, a ripe, voluptuous texture, and plenty of ripe tannins. It's another deep, rich, powerful 2017 that will drink well for 10-15 years."

2016 Alain Jaume Chateauneuf du Pape Vieux Terron - 93 pts - WA

wa93"Made from purchased fruit, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieux Terron is a dense, rich wine. Full-bodied and dusty, it's loaded with black cherries and plums but also savory notes of tapenade. Like most 2016s, it's super ripe, but it is balanced and doesn't show any heat or over-extraction, just a long, lingering and intense finish. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. - Joe Czerwinski"

2016 Alain Jaume Chateauneuf du Pape Vieux Terron - 90 pts - VINOUS

vinous logo"Deep ruby. Deep-pitched cherry and black raspberry aromas, along with licorice and mocha qualities and an energizing jolt of cracked pepper. Lush and open-knit, offering broad dark berry flavors, a hint of succulent herbs and building spiciness. Generous, in the style of the vintage, delivering solid finishing punch and sneaky tannins that add shape and gentle grip. - Josh Raynolds"
