Free Shipping on Six or More, PLUS $36 off Coupon on a Case!
2009 in the southern Rhone is yet another strong vintage. It may not quite eclipse the 2007 vintage, but 2009 is regarded as an excellent vintage, as it was in most of France and Europe for that matter. One of the best 2009 southern Rhones we’ve tasted so far is the Domaine la Milliere Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes.
The 2009 Domaine la Milliere Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is a more explosive style than previous vintages of the same wine. The 2009 has a lot more concentration, structure, and will have greater longevity in the cellar.
Robert Parker mentioned in his tasting note that it is “Dense, thick and rich, it is potentially one of the few 2009 Chateauneuf du Papes that will eclipse its 2007 counterpart.” He gave a rating of 92-95+ to the 2009 Domaine la Milliere. The plus added onto the score means he believes that the wine may possibly develop into a 96 point wine in the future.

Robert Parker 92-95+ Points-- The stunning 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes (from 80-100+ year old vines) gives some credibility to the vignerons’ arguments that in the drought-stricken 2009 growing season, the northern Chateauneuf du Pape parcels were less impacted than those in the south. Domaine La Milliere's vineyards are all in the northern sector. The deep ruby/purple-hued 2009 possesses abundant blackberry, black cherry and cassis fruit intermixed with notions of camphor, truffles, garrigue and licorice. Dense, thick and rich, it is potentially one of the few 2009 Chateauneuf du Papes that will eclipse its 2007 counterpart. An opulent, voluptuous texture, long finish and heady combination of herbs and super-concentrated fruit make for a wine that can be drunk upon release or cellared for 12-15 years.
