    The 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve is certainly one of the greatest Chateauneuf du Papes I’ve tasted and represents the essence of this fabulous terroir. From a cool and windy growing season, this work of art offers incredible creme de cassis, peppered steak, garrigue and bouquet garni to go with a flawless, massive, layered and seamless mouthfeel that carries serious amounts of fruit and tannin. When all is said and done, this beauty will have 3-4 decades or evolution.

    Bright, deep ruby-red. Brooding, pure, liqueur-like aromas of black cherry, cola and bitter chocolate. Rich, thick and velvety in the mouth; amazingly silky, seamless Chateauneuf. Liqueur-like red and black fruit flavors show a compelling perfumed quality. Builds slowly and lingers long on the aftertaste, hinting at cherry skin and mace. Showed a bit more oaky torrefaction with extended aeration. Perhaps the best bottle I've yet tasted from this producer.

    A recipe for a classic? Marry flavors of dark fig bread, currant paste and plum reduction with grippy tar and licorice snap notes. Lay that over racy graphite elements and add in smoky black tea, Christmas pudding and blueberry sauce notes. Back it all up with vibrant acidity. This is an awesome combination of power and definition, and it's remarkably youthful today.—2001 Châteauneuf-du-Pape non-blind retrospective (November 2011). Drink now through 2026. — JM

  • Located in the northern part of Chateauneuf du Pape and owned by the Daumen family since 1905, the domaine began bottling a small percentage of wine under its own label in the 1960s. Current owner Jean Paul Daumen's father, Maxime, built new cellars and installed foudres to accommodate the expanding production. The domaine's vines cover approximately 30 hectares and average 60 years of age.
    Yields are kept low and all grapes are de-stemmed prior to fermentation. 80% of the production is done in old oak foudres with the remainder in neutral barrels. Biodynamic principles are used in both the vineyards and cellar, and no SO2 is used during the vinification process.
