2010 - Grand Veneur Origines Chateauneuf Du Pape
"With more of everything, the 2010 Les Origines is a serious effort that has thrilling richness and depth. A blend of 50% Grenache and equal parts Syrah and Mourvedre that's aged for 18 months in new oak, it has a deep, rich bouquet of blackberry, creme de cassis, licorice, leather, graphite, and spice-box that gives way to a full-bodied, perfectly balanced Chateauneuf-du-Pape that builds on the palate, with fantastic richness, ripe tannin, and a finish that won't quit. Despite its stint in oak, it barely shows and the overall impression here is one of deep, concentrated, and pure fruit. This should be give 5-6 years of bottle age, and then consumed over the following 15 years or longer." (10/12) - 96 Pts Jeb Dunnuck - The Rhone Report
"Another blockbuster is the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Origines. A blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 20% Mourvedre (45- to-95-year-old vines) aged in small oak, it exhibits an opaque purple color as well as a sweet bouquet of blackberries, espresso roast, ink and graphite. While clearly a modern-styled Chateauneuf du Pape, it retains plenty of the region's typicity and authenticity. It should drink well for 15+ years." (10/12) - 95 Pts Robert Parker - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Inky purple. Ripe cherry and dark berry aromas are complicated by notes of spicecake and potpourri. Fleshy and expansive, offering sweet cherry-vanilla and blueberry flavors lifted by juicy acidity. Smooth, harmonious tannins lend shape to an impressively long finish, with lingering notes of floral pastilles and Asian spices." (02/13) - 93 Pts Josh Raynolds - International Wine Cellar
"Racy, offering delicious dark bramble, linzer torte and blackberry notes, with a strong graphite edge coursing through the finish. Gains density and flesh on the finish, which bodes well for the cellar. A modern style, but shows solid grounding in its terroir. Best from 2014 through 2022. 8,000 cases made. -JM" (07/12) - 92 Pts Wine Spectator
"In conversion to organic. 55% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 30% Mourvedre. 45% spends 16 months in barrique, 55% spends 16 months in concrete. Notably deep crimson Very spicy brooding nose. Sweet, mulberry start and then freshness and very clean tannins on the finish. A very ambitious wine. Dramatic. Drink from 2018 to 2032. (JR)" - (12/11) 17.5 out of 20 Points, Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages.
"Deep and brilliant, purple-red colour. An exciting nose with aromas of black fruit (blackcurrant, cherry) spices and vanilla. This great aromatic complexity is found on the palate : the spices and ripe fruit appear with an elegant woodiness and harmonious tannins. The finish has good aromatic length and introduces a touch of liquorice and pepper. A terrific Chateauneuf du Pape with great concentration and finesse." - Winery
Winemaking and Aging
"Harvest is sorted by hand, destemmed and crushed. Fermentation temperature is controlled at 30 degrees C. Vatting period of 18 to 20 days. Matured in vats (grenache) and in oak casks (syrah and mourvedre)." - Winery
2009 - Villard Collines Rhodaniennes Contours Deponcins Viognier
"Fragrant and as it should be. Lots of apricot and peach on the nose and then a fine almond-kernel bitter freshness on the palate. Dry but quite rich. Well judged. (JH)" (11/10) -16.5 out of 20 points, Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages
"Known as a Condrieu "master", Francois has grown his tiny domaine from 4 to 7 hectares and still produces a minuscule amount of highly allocated bottling. Referred to by Robert Parker as one of the few "stars" of the Northern Rhone, Francois has recently acquired a small parcel in Cote-Rotie and a few areas in St. Joseph."
"Formerly a chef, Francois brings his brings his complex palate to the winery to produce wines of power and grace that age for years. Francois Villard's strategy is to allow for the most optimal ripening period possible."
"His wines, as a result, are rich and concerted with complex aromas of peaches, apricots, honeysuckle, and honey for the whites and leather and spice for the reds/ The whites are often allowed to develop botrytis and most of the wines pass though wood aging for an extended amount of time to prepare them for a very long life in bottle." -Importer
