Chateauneuf du Pape 2018 Les Hauts Lieux - Domaine de la Vieille Julienne
Tasting: Intense, with a powerful core of blackcurrant, fig and blackberry jam flavors mixed with notes of bittersweet cocoa, smoky tobacco and warm earth. A tarry handle supports the finish.
Vineyard: This is the highest and most sheltered part of the slope. The marly soils and shallower saffrons covered with quartzite pebbles are particularly suitable for mourvèdre. It is also the coolest and later part of the vineyard and under the frequent firmness of the tannins, the wines are vigorous and of great elegance.
Surface area: 4.5 ha
Grape varieties: black grenache, mourvèdre, cinsault and counoise.
Average age of the vines: 70 years
