2006 Domaine de la Vieille Julienne Châteauneuf-du-Pape - France, Rhône, Southern Rhône, Châteauneuf-du-Pape (6/5/2009)
Dark purple in the glass. Deep and tarry. Red fruit, pepper, cassis. Fleshy and rich in the mouth, dark fruit and herbs, yet there is some heat to the finish. It’s no small wine, it is seriously stacked. I’ll wait on my last two for some years.
2006 Domaine du Père Caboche Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes Cuvée Elisabeth Chambellan - France, Rhône, Southern Rhône, Châteauneuf-du-Pape (6/5/2009)
Soft red cherry and blackberry fruit. Clean, with some mineral notes and a smoky-peppered finish. Nice little wine. Not built for the ages, but nice now.

Thanks for the note! I love this producer.
Great to see the CT link, too.
Figured I’d take the CT integration for a spin.
Thanks for the CdP notes. Julienne is my favorite, and I’m glad to have the info.
Thanks for the note on the Vielle Julienne. I’ve got mine resting comfortably in my offsite storage farthest away from my home.
Yes. Keep them at bay for a good while. I’m a fan of youth, but this clearly will benefit from some time. my two cents.
Finishing the last glass of the Julienne recorked last night. Wow. Killing tonight.
Totally lush dark fruit kissed with spices and a long chewy finish. Good times ahead.
Thanks for the update.
Think Jer is playing Reuben & Cherise in the avatar?
In my perfect world…yes! Have you heard the few acoustic versions, Jer solo, and the few with John Kahn from the mid-80s? Pure joy there.
