We are pleased to offer the excellent 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape from Vieux Donjon. With an upper range of 95 points Jeb Dunnuck , who called it “top of the heap” of the region’s Châteauneuf-du-Papes, and as the product of an excellent vintage Rhône, it offers brilliant value for money.
All reports indicate that 2015 is a blockbuster year for the Rhône valley, with winemakers and critics alike calling it one of the best they have seen in decades. With this in mind, the wines from 2015 should be taken very seriously, especially when accompanied with as glowing endorsements as this 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape from Vieux Donjon.
Jeb Dunnuck was a huge fan of the wine when he tasted it in October 2016, writing: “I consider Claire Michel’s le Vieux Donjon at the top of the heap when it comes to classic, age-worthy and traditionally made Châteauneuf-du-Papes” and adding “it will have two decades or more of prime drinking”. John Livingstone-Learnmoth of DrinkRhone.com agrees, awarding the wine 4.5 stars and writing: “This will sing a lovely tune in a large glass when eight to 13 years old.”
The vines owned by Vieux Donjon benefit from between 50, and as much as 100 years, of age. They are low-yielding and expensive to cultivate, but allow for finished wines with tremendous complexity, concentration and depth; the key attributes that make Châteauneuf-du-Pape so well loved among connoisseurs and a vital factor in the 2015’s stellar performance.
A really lovely Châteauneuf-du-Pape from an unbeatable year, this wine is hard to ignore.
