98 Pts Jeb Dunnuck - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The awesome 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Reserve is at the top of the heap in the vintage, and is world-class stuff. Sharing lots of similarities to the Les Trois Sources (they come from similar terroirs), it has another level of concentration and density, with incredible liquid rock, blueberry, violets, licorice and bouquet garni-like aromas and flavors. A rock star on the palate, it has full-bodied power, perfect balance, a seamless, elegant texture and blockbuster mid-palate depth. Coming from 100-year-old Grenache vines and pure sand soils, it’s a tour de force that will have two-plus decades of life."

96 Pts Wine Spectator

"Packed in tight, with fig, boysenberry and blackberry confiture notes bursting with youthful energy, harnessed by graphite, tar and ganache elements. Reveals a terrific bolt of anise through the finish, showing echoes of juniper and violet. There's superb range and depth here. This will take some cellaring to unwind fully. Best from 2019 through 2035. 30 cases imported. -JM"

94 Pts Josh Raynolds - Vinous Media

"Opaque ruby. Deeply pitched dark berry liqueur, cherry pit, licorice and woodsmoke scents pick up exotic Indian spice and floral pastille qualities with air. Juicy, broad and alluringly sweet on the palate, with vibrant blackberry and bitter cherry flavors lifted and sharpened by zesty acidity. Shows excellent depth and power, finishing sweet, smoky and very long. This wine checks in at 16% alcohol, for those who are counting."


Description:

"In 1990, Jean-Paul took over the family vineyards, farming 10ha in Chateauneuf du Pape and 5ha in Cotes du Rhone. In that same year, Jean-Paul 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.

From Southern Rhone, Domaine de la Vieille Julienne is no stranger to many a vintner's coveted success. In 2001, 2003, 2005, and 2006, Robert Parker awarded 100 points to Jean-Paul Daumen's Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve. But in 2007 when Jean-Paul tasted the Reserve, he was not impressed. He decided against bottling it because in his mind, the wine wasn't much different from that of the other parcels." - Importer
