2013 Chateauneuf du Pape

Le Vieux Donjon

flagRhone / France

Showing even better from bottle than barrel, the outstanding 2013 Chateauneuf du Pape is a slightly shifted blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 20% Mourvedre that saw the normal traditional vinification (50% destemmed) and aging in foudre. It reveals a healthy ruby/purple color to go with lots of pepper, Provencal herbs and currants. Medium-bodied, with more density than the 2014, it shows the slightly austere edge to the vintage, yet has a beautiful texture, ripe tannin and an excellent finish. It will have 10-15 years or overall longevity. Oct 2015, www.robertparker.com
