Notes de dégustation


Starting with the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape, it’s a forward, supple and sweetly fruited effort that offers up loads of kirsch, garrigue, licorice and pepper on the nose. Playing in the medium-bodied, elegant spectrum, it will evolve nicely for 7-8 years.


Bright ruby. A heady bouquet presents candied red fruits, garrigue, woodsmoke and cured meat, with an exotic Asian spice quality gaining strength with air. Sappy, penetrating and seamless, offering sweet, concentrated red and dark berry flavors and a touch of licorice. The smoke and spice notes come back strong on the clinging finish, which is framed by silky, nicely woven tannins. This already shows terrific complexity.


Tasted as a final blend, the 2011 Le Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf-du-Pape is already complex and upfront, showing loads of wild herbs, meat juice, licorice, and cherry liqueur aromatics, a medium-bodied, supple mouth-feel, and good, but not great concentration. It is clean and very well-made, yet by Vieux Donjon standards, is surprisingly approachable at this stage. While most likely best drunk in its first decade or so of life, it should still benefit from short-term cellaring.
