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 – "Leading off the three Châteauneuf Du Papes, the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Les Trois Sources comes from more sandy soils just across the road from the estate. It always shares more stylistic similarities with the Réserve and is more opulent, sexy, and fruit loaded compared to the Hauts-Lieux cuvée. This 2017 is spectacular, offering loads of black fruits, black licorice, ground herbs, violets, and some obvious loamy soil and mineral-like aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, expansive, and multi-dimensional, this is another singular wine from Jean-Paul Daumen that tastes like the essence of this stunning terroir." 95 points Jeb Dunnuck
