Jean-Paul Daumen 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 Domaine de le Vieille Julienne like a philosopher or poet. Daumen farms 10ha of biodynamic Châteauneuf-du-Pape, with an average vine age of 70 years. There is a stonethrow distance between his Châteauneuf-du-Pape & Côtes du Rhône appellations (3 meters to be precise), so it is not a surprise to Rhône lovers that both display the power and structure the region’s best wines are known for.

It’s a Côtes du Rhône, but sits adjacent to the domaine’s property in Chateauneuf. Chocolate, dried herb, liquorice, dried roses, dark berries. Medium-bodied, dense and concentrated, dried herb perfume with earthy flavour in amongst the berries, graphite grip and tannin, super length. It’s a thick and large-scale, but has undeniable personality and class. Tasted: Nov 18; Alcohol: 14.5%; Price: $45; Closure: Cork; Drink: 2018-2026+; Rated: 94 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
