    Domaine de la Vieille Julienne produced a stunning and intense 2010 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Réservé. This iconic wine has a bright red robe with ruby glints. It is undoubtedly a top wine of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation. The nose opens up on Morello cherries and candied oranges with a hint of minerality. The 2010 Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a structured and chiseled great wine. On the palate the wine is subtle with a nice freshness and a remarkable depth. Domaine de la Vieille Julienne created a sumptuous wine that can age for a few more years.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    There are 500 cases of the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve. At 16.4% natural alcohol, the pleasure police will no doubt suggest this wine is hot and out of balance. However, nothing could be further from the truth as there is not a trace of heat in this modern day legend in traditional Chateauneuf du Pape. Yields were under 20 hectoliters per hectare, and the vines utilized for the Reserve were planted in 1904. Virtually all Grenache with the balance probably including Syrah and Mourvedre, this is a field blend. An inky/purple color is accompanied by notes of raspberries, blueberries and blackberries. There is a sappy precision to its formidably endowed, massive mouthfeel. Sadly, this profound Chateauneuf du Pape is nearly impossible to find. It should evolve easily for 20-25 years.
