Lot #434. Vieille Julienne Châteauneuf-du-Pape Réserve 2003

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 100 RP.
"Sadly, the 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Reservee (150 cases of a wine that reached 16.5% natural alcohol) is one of the most profound Chateauneuf du Papes ever produced, but latching onto a few bottles is virtually impossible. A blend of 95% Grenache and 5% Syrah, it is an astonishingly rich wine, offering up notes of black raspberry liqueur intermixed with kirsch, crushed rocks, and white flowers. The wine has superb richness, amazing intensity, yet comes across as relatively light on its feet for a wine of such massive richness and intensity. Wine Advocate #163, Feb 2006
Provenance: The Highlands Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $190
