Domaine Le Prieure des Papes Chateauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes 2019

Red Blends  |  France


Led by one of the top wine professionals in the world, Antoine Petrus, this “new” estate is one to watch! Originally known as Domaine La Millière – a long-time favorite of ours – this producer has taken the old vines of  La Millière’s best plots and given them new life in this 93-POINT bottling!

Domaine La Millière was long run by the Arnaud family, who sold the estate, the facilities, and most importantly, those extra special, seriously ancient vines (up to 130 years old!) back in 2019. Domaine le Prieure des Papes is the new name for the estate, and put this on your radar as one to watch! Organic. Bio-dynamic. SAVORY, complex, layered, and deliciously packed with flavor. It does all this with BALANCE and vibrancy. 

This wine hails from the fantastic 2019 vintage Châteauneuf and reveals a powerfully intense and concentrated essence of kirsch, with raspberries, blackberry jam, nutmeg, lavender and lilacs, freshly dug earth – all with deeply satisfying sweet herbs, and fantastic mouthfeel. Not a heavy wine, but young and powerful and fantastic. A tremendous first effort that proves the Arnaud family’s legacy is in good hands. 93 POINTS and over 44% OFF? This is not to be missed!

About the Producer

“Previously known as Domaine La Millière, Domaine le Prieure des Papes is now under the helm of France’s superstar sommelier, Antoine Petrus, who in addition to managing this estate, is in charge of Domaine de Coyeux in Beaumes de Venise and is a partner in the restaurant La Mère Germaine, located in the heart of Châteauneuf du Pape. The 2019s are rock solid, but I have no doubt the best is yet to come from this estate.”

93 Jeb Dunnuck -
While just bottled the week prior to this tasting, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Vieilles Vignes wasn’t showing any worse for it and offered a beautiful perfume of blackberries, raspberries, ground pepper, and garrigue. The purity of fruit is spot on, it’s medium to full-bodied, has a balanced texture, and a great finish.
