Seamless & Sensational
With a near-perfect 98-point score, Jeb Dunnuck called it simply “incredible.” That’s the power of the Domaine de la Vieille Julienne 2016 Les Trois Sources! This is Châteauneuf-du-Pape that’s loaded to bear with deep black raspberry liqueur flavors, violets, licorice, and garrigue notes to spare.
98 points, Jeb Dunnuck (Aug 2018)
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.
96 points, James Molesworth, Wine Spectator (May 2020)
A lush, ripe style, with açaí berry, blueberry and plum reduction notes giving this a slightly exotic bent, while singed bay leaf, worn leather and warm tar accents keep this grounded in a slightly old-school way. Displays ample heft, yet energy ripples through the finish, accompanied by lingering garrigue and tobacco echoes. Best from 2022 through 2040. 2,000 cases made, 500 cases imported.
