2015 Domaine Grand Veneur Chateauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes

SKU #1358077 97 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vielle Vignes carries a deep ruby/purple-tinged color as well as a classic bouquet of black raspberries, ground pepper, garrigue and hints of graphite. Gorgeously pure, elegant and seamless on the palate, with building tannin, it's impeccably balanced and shows the best of this vintage. Inner quote mark (10/2017)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark With its complex nose melding whiffs of fresh raspberry and violet with savory spice, smoke and nut tones, it's hard not to be mesmerized by this wine's bouquet alone. The palate is pure and lavish, boasting pristine blackberry and mulberry flavors held taut by a firm tannic backbone. It's remarkably integrated and supple now but should improve through 2035 and hold substantially further. *Editors' Choice* (AI) Inner quote mark (6/2018)

92-94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark (40 percent raised in concrete vats and the rest in small new and used oak barrels) Opaque ruby. An exotically perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red and blue fruits, incense and vanilla, along with an exotic Moroccan spice nuance. Sweet, expansive and velvety in texture, offering deeply concentrated yet energetic boysenberry and black raspberry flavors and a sexy lavender pastille flourish. The vanilla and floral notes repeat emphatically on an impressively long, supple finish, which leaves behind a sweet dark fruit note. (JR) Inner quote mark (3/2017)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is the most backward and impenetrable of the three Grand Veneur cuvées, hence my reluctance in a blind tasting to elevate it above the others. It still shows incredible concentration and promise, combining mocha, cherry and plum notes with masses of chewy tannins. I wouldn't be at all surprised to see it perform better in five or ten years. (JC) 93+ Inner quote mark (10/2017)
