Le Vieux Donjon 2010 (Chateauneuf-du-Pape) Rhone Valley - France
Availability: BCLDB stores
Cost: $57.99 + taxes
Production: 8000 cases
Date Tasted: May 1st, 2017
Tasting Notes: From the cellar. Complex, on the graceful nose and the refined palate with layers of dark berries, spiced plums, kirsch, black olives, bay leaf, incense and floral notes. Though still youthful in 2017, the tannins have mellowed, enhancing its exceptional smoothness and calming texture. The seemingly, never-ending finish resolves to lingering, cracked pepper and dried black currant flavours.
Delicious today, but, to make the most of your investment, wait another 1-2 years. Drink 2018-2025.
