Le Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf du Pape 2016
|Region||France, Rhone, Chateauneuf-du-Pape|
|Brand||Le Vieux Donjon|
This offers a blitz of bay leaf and juniper notes out front, followed by a racy and tightly coiled core of red and black currant, damson plum and cherry fruit flavors. Lots of brisk iron and garrigue accents rifle through the finish. Clear, precise and streamlined, this should age wonderfully. Best from 2020 through 2040. 7,000 cases made, 1,000 cases imported.
