2015 Domaine Grand Veneur "Le Miocène" Chateâuneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1288469 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Almost as terrific as the Les Origines, the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Le Miocene is a traditional blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre, matured in older wood. Dark-skinned fruit, like blueberries and black cherries, form the full-bodied core of the wine, accented by hints of garrigue and dried spices. The texture is rich and creamy, turning softly dusty on the long finish. (JC)  (10/2017)

 The base cuvée is the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Le Miocène, and it's a terrific wine in the vintage as well. Black raspberries, ground pepper, spice and ample garrigue characteristics emerge from this medium to full-bodied, elegant beauty. It too has plenty of fine tannins, an endearing, elegant style, and a great finish. As normal, the blend is 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre, brought up mostly in concrete tanks.

Rhone Blends



- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.


- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
