91-92 Pts Josh Raynolds - Vinous Media
"Brilliant ruby-red. Assertively perfumed red berry preserve and floral pastille scents show very good clarity, picking up notes of allspice and cola with air. Sweet and expansive on the palate, offering energetic black raspberry and cherry cola flavors that show appealing spiciness and a touch of candied lavender. This fresh, seamless wine finishes with impressive persistence, excellent thrust and harmonious tannins that fold smoothly into the sweet, penetrating fruit."
"The wines that fall under the name Daumen are from Jean-Paul Daumen's negociant operation. Some of them actually emerge from estate fruit that he had declassified from his vineyards. They are limited production, but exceptionally impressive cuvees. Daumen is one of the most meticulous viticulturists and winemakers in ChÃ¢teauneuf-du-Pape.
When Jean-Paul took over the estate in 1990, he began working towards organic certification while practicing biodynamics in the vineyard. Inspired by the expression of terroir, Jean-Paul knows that wines taste best when naturally produced. Favoring wild yeasts and neutral woods, Daumen is a man of manual labor, who hand harvests his 100+ year old vines, punches down caps, and controls temperatures not with the aid of a computer system, but by checking the temperatures of tanks by hand, and regulating with "drapes"-- the aluminum piping that carries hot or cold water to heat or cool the tanks.Adhering not to syndicate mandates, Daumen eschews the two syndicate bottle designs for Chateauneuf du Pape: the embossed papal cap and the keys and crest." - Importer
