About This Wine
Domaine de la Vieille Julienne is an icon of the region. It is helmed by the hugely respected vigneron, Jean-Paul Dauman, who took over from his father in 1992 and has since become one of the most revered, inventive and respected producers in France. He is a thoughtful, intelligent and deeply caring vigneron, managing the beautiful estate of like a philosopher or poet. Daumen farms 20ha of biodynamic Châteauneuf-du-Pape, with an average vine age of 70 years. Even the Cotes-du-Rhone bottling is a stone's-throw distance from his Châteauneuf-du-Pape vines, so it is no surprise that every wine with the Vieille Julienne label is at the highest level of the appellations.

World Wine – "The 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Les Hauts-Lieux comes from slightly higher elevation sites and includes more Mourvèdre than the Les Trois Source release. It’s pure, full-bodied, and incredibly structured, with a tight, backward style that’s going to benefit from bottle age. Showing a distinct salty minerality as well as loads of black and blue fruits, it reminds me of the 2015 yet with more elegance. Hide bottles for 4-5 years and enjoy over the following two decades". 96+ points Jeb Dunnuck
