Domaine Jean Royer

Vi mener at Jean Marie Royer idag laver en af de absolut bedste Chateauneuf du Pape’s I meget traditionel stil som Rayas og Charvin . I de seneste ratings hos Vinous finder man ham med lige så gode rating eller bedre end så kendte huse som Beaucastel, Pierre Ussiglio og andre-
Så Jean Marie er i den absolutte elite i Chateauneuf du Pape. At han så tilmed er en utrolig flink og festlig fyr er kun en tilgift!
Vingården er ikke stor (4,5 hkt ) og der laves både rød og hvid vin. Kendetegnende for hans vine er en ufattelig koncentration + elegance. En del af ”hemmeligheden” er +100 år gamle vinstokke . Endnu koster vinen ikke i nærheden af Rayas og Charvin. Og godt for det !

Always among the most elegant examples of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, regardless of vintage, the 2015s here show a more broad-shouldered character than usual, which is no surprise given the vintage. That said, they still stood out in my tastings for their fresh fruit and relatively light touch, much as was the case in other recent warm vintages like 2009 and even torrid years like 2007 and 2003. In fact, one could argue that those vintages favor owner/winemaker Jean-Marie Royer’s style as the wines’ typical spiciness and intense fruit character is amplified by the increased ripeness of the fruit. These are Châteauneufs for Burgundy lovers and, in fact, I have fooled more than a few avid Burgophiles with cooler vintage Royers like the ‘04s, 06s and ‘08s over the last few years into thinking that they were drinking Pinot Noir, such is the vibrant red fruit character and florality of those bottlings.
