In addition to his Vieille Julienne label, Jean-Paul is also making wines under his biodynamic negoc label ‘Daumen’. Even if these wines have the intention to be more accessible, they are anything but simple. Read More

Press Review

    Domaine de la Vieille Julienne Châteauneuf-du-Pape les Trois Sources 12pk 2018

    This is vibrantly fruity full of forest berries and good juice on the palate with quite a firm, slightly hard strictness to the tannins, but it contributes to a sense of drinkability, direction and straightness. An agreeably authentic expression. Biodynamic. Vinified in concrete in a cool cellar (around 18 ̊C) so the fermentation starts slowly. All destemmed apart from just 20% of old vine Grenache.

    Tank sample. Extraordinary blueberry fruit - really juicy and delicious. Super-floral too, really expressive and opulent. A great triumph in this vintage, one of the purest and most delicious expressions of Grenache, with firmness but mouth-watering juciness as well. It's a drinkable, upfront style and the complexity will take time to emerge.
