2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Réservé, Domaine de la Vieille Julienne

This is made from old Grenache, first planted from Massal selection, dating back to 1905-1906. On tasting it was both deep and closed, but with wonderful purity. Fine and long and silky, saline tannins which are long, and amazingly rendered. So much energy. Quite tapenade and also herbs and flowers. Very complex. It’s 90-95% Grenache, with a touch of Counoise, Syrah and Cinsault. Very impressive.
