      Tasting Notes
      Domaine Vieille Julienne Cotes Du Rhone Lieu-dit Clavin 2016, 75cl

      "Domaine de la Vieille Julienne was founded in 1905. At first, like many small producers in the Southern Rhone Valley, the fruit was harvested and sold to negociants who bottled and sold the wine under various names. This changed in the late 1960’s when Maxine Daumen began bottling the wines of Domaine Vieille Julienne.

      In 1990, Jean-Paul Daumen, following in the footsteps of his family started working at Domaine Vieille Julienne. Domaine Vieille Julienne is still a family affair, as today, the son of Jean-Paul, Antoine Daumen is being trained to eventually take over the estate. That was the first major step forward for Domaine Vieille Julienne as they focusing on producing wine from their old vine Grenache. For the first time, they were now seeking true ripeness and low yields.

      Domaine de la Vieille Julienne owns 15 hectares of vines in Chateauneuf du Pape. The increase in their holdings took place in about 2016, when they added 5 hectares of vines that were in some sections contiguous to their holdings in the appellation. The terroir is a rocky, sandy soil, perfect for the Southern Rhone Valley. While the vines have an impressive average age of 60 years, the estate also has old Grenache vines that are over 100 years old! Biodynamic farming techniques are practiced in the vineyards. In their vineyards, they plant Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, Counoise and Cinsault."
      (The Wine Cellar Inside.com)

      The Côtes-du-Rhône is a great example of property style, made for smoothness and power. Produced on fairly stony, aired and deep soils, it is dominated by our old Grenache, in a place called "Clavin". According to the year the "Clavin" is supplemented by 20 to 30% by Syrah and old Mourvèdre. Like the Chateauneuf du Pape, 2 sorting's occur. Only healthy and ripe grapes are vinified. Balance being established in the vineyard, the grapes are vinified without any external contribution (sulphites, tartaric acid ...) and exclusively with indigenous yeast. The temperature is controlled during fermentation, over-extraction is not required. At the end of the fermentation, draining is done, by gravity, directly into the foudre, in which, after malolactic fermentation the elevation will continue over one year. After a single sulfiting, the wines will be bottled without fining or filtration. The Côtes-du-Rhône is in perfect harmony with the style of our estate.
      Aging potential: 4 to 8 years. Serving temperature: 16 °

      "From the boundary of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, with identical top soils.
      Smooth, chalky tannin with delicious black bramble fruit. Clean and precise with weight but not heaviness. Very smart and plush with a sense of delicacy alongside the powerful fruit. Drink 2018 - 2026.
