Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 96

With no Reserve bottling in the vintage, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape incorporates all of the top plots of the estate. An incredible wine that's always performed brilliantly any time I've opened a bottle, it gives up layered, ripe aromas and flavors of black raspberry, crushed violets, black licorice and graphite (the wine see only very old foudre and no new oak? ever) to go with a voluptuous, concentrated and structured personality. While there's no shortage of tannin here, they're sweet, polished and integrated. Give it another year or two and drink it over the following decade.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 94

Very ripe, but focused and pure, with a gorgeous core of crushed plum, pastis and raspberry ganache notes stitched together with long, velvety tannins. Spice, fruitcake and melted licorice notes echo through the superlong finish. Drink now through 2020. 2,000 cases made.

85% Grenache. No stems. Aged in tank and old wood.Very, very dark crimson. Savoury. Real vibrancy and savour. Still lots of tannin.

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.
