These days, Vieux Donjon is one of the few estates in the region making only a single cuvée (Close des Papes is another). The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape is a floral, violet-scented wine that's supple and ripe. Only medium to full-bodied, it showcases complex garrigue and licorice notes rather than oodles of red fruit and comes to a long, silky finish.

Tasting note


The 2019 Le Vieux Donjon Chateauneuf-du-Pape is a testament to the art of blending, showcasing a rich tapestry of flavors. With an alcohol content of 15%, it benefits from a 2-hour decant to fully express its complex profile. On the palate, it reveals layers of dark red berries, black pepper, and wet earth, underpinned by the distinctive garrigue of the Rhone region. The lush sweetness of red fruits is balanced by a backbone of ripe tannins, culminating in a long finish marked by dark red cherries and a melange of spices. This wine pairs exquisitely with grilled red meats, game dishes, mature cheeses, and rich stews.
