DOMAINE DE LA VIEILLE JULIENNE Châteauneuf-du-Pape Réservé 2012
96 points, $300
Packed in tight, with fig, boysenberry and blackberry confiture notes bursting with youthful energy, harnessed by graphite, tar and ganache elements. Reveals a terrific bolt of anise through the finish, showing echoes of juniper and violet. There's superb range and depth here. This will take some cellaring to unwind fully. Best from 2019 through 2035. 30 cases imported. —James Molesworth
