2013 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieux Donjon

Average critic rating : 88.0 points



What should be a very good wine, the 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape has classic pepper, wet stone, iron, bouquet garni and dark fruit to go with a firm, structured and tannic feel on the palate. Made from 65% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre and 5% Cinsault that’s vinified in concrete tanks and aged 15 months in ancient foudre, it will be best with short-term cellaring.||Another bastion of traditional Châteauneuf du Papes, Le Vieux Donjon is run by the talented Claire Michel. She produces a single cuvee that’s always a rough blend of 70-75% Grenache and the rest Syrah, Mourvedre and Cinsault. It’s partial destemming and aging occurs all in old foudre. Classic, Provençal, old-school and high-quality are the buzzwords here. eRobertParker.com.October, 2014
