The Collective Review

The Daumen releases...which can be thought of as super-negociant wines where Jean-Paul is directly involved with all aspects of the vineyards and winemaking. In short, there are few wines I'd rather have on my table than those from Jean-Paul Daumen! - Jeb Dunnuck

Grenache Noir, Cinsault, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Bourboulenc, Clairette and Grenache Blanc grown on vines with an average age of 85 years. Importer: Fesq Deep and chocolaty, but perfumed with roses, scrub herbs and lavender too. Dense and meaty, dried herb, blackberry, thick stony tannin, slightly baked, but the power and intensity is undeniable, as is the length. If you like the throttle pulled right out, this will surely blow your hair back. Read more

Tasting Notes

There is a stonethrow distance between his Châteauneuf-du-Pape & Côtes du Rhône appellations (3 metres to be precise), so it is not a surprise to Rhône lovers that both display the power and structure the region’s best wines are known for.

Winemakers Note

Jean-Paul is aware of the unique nature of an estate property in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and started to change his methods of vinification and blending in 2010. He moved away from blending in the winery and put all his focus on balanced field blends in the vineyard; the process of blending is now on a parcel by parcel basis, and not based on a grape by grape variety choice. Low yields are a priority at Vieille Julienne. Being held below 20hl per hectare, this leads to power, purity and concentration in his wines. The grapes are destemmed before co-fermentation in the cuverie, while aging takes place in a combination of foudres and old oak barrels. In short, these are “vineyard” wines of immense concentration, but little winery influence. 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.
