Domaine Vieille Julienne Trois Sources 2013 Chateauneuf du Pape
Located on a mild terroir of slopes, between lieu-dit Clavin and les Hauts-lieux, the grenache is perfectly at home there with this mosaic of safres's sands, pebbles and red clays, producing a perfect balance of power and finesse. Well-built, with a core of dark currant, plum and raspberry paste flavors that have ample depth. Dried anise, sweet tobacco and warm ganache notes fill in through the finish. Fresh acidity lends support, giving this a sense of elegance despite the heft.
