Domaine de la Vieille Julienne 2011 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Trois Sources has a very intense aromatic bouquet. One can detect aromas of liquorice, sage, blackcurrant, and raspberry. The taste is dense and the tannins are velvety and firm. The finish is fragrant, long and expresses a good minerality. 2011 Les Trois Sources is generous, complex and rich. It can be drink now, as a young wine, or in a decade for more developed aromas.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
More approachable, with perfumed notes of black licorice, sage and roasted meats balanced by a core of sweet black raspberry and cassis-styled fruit, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Trois Sources is medium-bodied, beautifully textured and possesses fine, polished tannin on the finish. Slightly more rounded and textured than the Les Hauts Lieux, this beauty comes from sandy soils (the same region where the Reserve comes from) located on a north-facing slope, at a slightly lower elevation than where the Les Hauts Lieux comes from. Perfumed, complex and rich, it should drink nicely for 10-12 years. Drink now-2023.
