Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 95

One of the undeniable stars of the vintage, the 1999 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve is a blockbuster in a year that did not generally produce wines of such power and richness (of course, it includes the declassified Vieilles Vignes cuvee in the blend). A deep purple color is followed by aromas of cassis, kirsch liqueur, flowers, plums, and blackberries. Full-bodied, multi-layered, and fabulously extracted, with low acidity, sweet tannin, and magnificent purity, this is a sumptuous, prodigious Chateauneuf du Pape that should drink well for 15-20 years. It is hard to believe that something this special could have been produced in 1999, but there are a half dozen or so wines at this level in 1999.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 92

Good sweetness, with full-bodied, rich and ripe vanilla, mocha, blackberry, plum and mineral notes that add complexity to the long finish and tobacco-scented, lingering aftertaste. Well-made Châteauneuf. 500 cases made.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91(+?)

($30) Bright ruby-red. Perfumed aromas of cassis, violet pastille and mint. Dense but juicy and penetrating, with enticing flavors of black fruits, licorice and mint. Tightly wound but already quite aromatic in the middle and on the very long finish. Structured to age. (Europvin/Christopher Cannan Selections, Bordeaux, France)

About This Producer


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.

Wine Varietal: Rhone Blend


"Rhone blends" are typically red wines comprised of Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedre in varying proportions. However, the red blends may also include any of the traditional varieties grown in the Rhone Valley such as the 14 allowed in the Chateauneuf-du-Pape appellation. There are also Rhone blend roses which use the same varieties as their red counterparts. White Rhone blends are typically some combination of Marsanne, Roussanne, Viognier, Grenache blanc, and lesser varieties.
