Product Overview

By creating the first "appellation" of French AOC in 1933, the baron Leroy defined precise criteria of quality which still are a reference today : Limitation of yields, manuel harvest and sorting, concept of origin and terroir. To respect the spirit of "appellation" at Vieille Julienne, since five generations are planted Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cournoise, Cinsault and even extremely rare varieties like Muscardin and Vaccarèse.

Wine Advocate (WA) Review

WA 97
The 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes (15% alcohol) emerges from a cold terroir in the northern sector of the appellation. The blend is generally 85% Grenache and equal parts Syrah and Mourvedre. Its opaque purple color is followed by a sumptuous perfume of creme de cassis, kirsch liqueur, licorice, plums, minerals, and smoke. Mammoth in the mouth, but surprisingly structured and tannic for a 2000, it is more evolved than its 2001 counterpart. This profound Chateauneuf should evolve slowly and age magnificently for two decades. It is a monumental effort, but patience will be a virtue. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2025.-Robert Parker
