Domaine de la Vielle Julienne

About Domaine de la Vielle Julienne

Domaine de la Vieille Julienne lies in the northern part of the appellation on mostly sandy terroir farmed organically and sustainably since Jean-Paul took over the estate in 1990.

 

Jean-Paul Daumen, the man behind this stunning estate, is the 5th generation owner and winemaker of Domaine de la Vieille Julienne. Other than being named by Matt Walls as one of six Châteauneuf-du-Pape producers to watch in 2017, recommended by Forbes in 2016, Jean-Paul’s Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Trois Sources 2016 also made it to the 6th spot on Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Wines of 2020. Despite cementing his stature as one of the most established producers in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Jean-Paul remains curious and open to new ideas in his never-ending journey towards perfection.

 

Viniculture

Keeping yields minuscule, he produces powerful and long-lived wines that are aged in neutral foudres and tanks to retain freshness. First made in 1994 from vines over 100 years old, the Châteauneuf-du-Pape Reserve is, according to Dunnuck, “only produced when Jean-Paul feels that the plot has something special to say”.

La Vieille Julienne Chateauneuf-du-Pape Les Trois Sources 2016 (6x75cl)

Jeb Dunnuck (98)

The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Trois Sources is straight-up sensational and isn’t far off the more expensive Reserve cuvée in style and quality. Huge notes of blackcurrants, black raspberries, crushed violets, licorice, and incredible minerality, as well as a smoking floral quality, all soar from the glass of this full-bodied, seamless, pure wine that readers should snatch up. With good acidity, awesome purity, and a great, great finish, it's an incredible wine any way you look at it. Drink it anytime over the coming two decades or more.
