Merchant's Picks

“Chateauneuf-du-Awesome • Our CDP Pick Of The Year!”

Our Chateauneuf Pick Of The Year!

By David Gettenberg

Sheer Chateauneuf pleasure!

This year's "Awesome Award" goes to the 2012 Domaine de La Vieille Julienne "les Trois Sources." With six years of bottle age and from a classic Rhone vintage, you will not find a better CDP for the money!

Speaking of classics, this traditionally made Grenache blend was finished in neutral oak to preserve the wine's nuanced flavors. Old World in style, it is made from 100 year-old vines. If that weren't enough, the wine also happens to be certified biodynamic.

With multiple 100 point scores and a long list of accolades, Domaine de la Vieille Julienne is one of the premier Chateauneuf producers.

"A rich, lush style, with warmed fig, boysenberry confiture and ganache notes melded together at the core, all backed by freshly drawn espresso and singed juniper details. A lovely tug of earth through the finish keeps this grounded." Wine Spectator

What do we love most about this wine?

With a stunning mouthfeel, it has layers of plum, cassis, fig, and blackberry. Textured and lush, it is not fruit forward. Instead, it is restrained, graceful, and full of pure fruit expression.


Enjoy now and over the next five years.
