    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2005 vintage of this wine was ranked #3 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 2007

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape is dominated by Grenache with major amounts of Mourvedre, Syrah and other authorized varietals. Its dense ruby/plum color is followed by aromas of smoked meats, roasted Provencal herbs, a gamy character and lots of kirsch, black currant and blue fruits. Rich and full-bodied, it is softer than most young vintages of Vieux Donjon tend to be, and should drink well for 12-15 years.

    The Wine Advocate

    Bordeaux-like in its complexity, range of flavor and structure, this taut red shows mineral-laced dried berry, plum jam, sage, cedar and tobacco flavors that are full-bodied and firm nicely on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2021.

    Wine Spectator

    Vivid purple. Powerful cherry and dark berry aromas are complemented by a sexy floral nuance. Smooth and deep on the palate, offering juicy red and dark berry preserve flavors that become spicier with air. The floral quality carries through on the subtly sweet, very persistent finish.
