Chateau du Donjon Minervois Rose Chateau du Donjon France Languedoc Syrah Cinsault 2011

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

With respect to the red wines the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape (75% Grenache 15% Syrah and the rest Mourvedre and Cinsault) exhibits lots of tapenade new saddle leather garrigue black currant black cherry smoke earth and gamy/meaty notes. It is a surprisingly full-bodied rich layered 2011 that should drink well for 10-15 years. -Robert Parker Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

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. - Jeb Dunnuck Rhone Report The.

Looking at the reds and perfumed and beautifully Provencal the 2011 Chateauneuf-du-Pape has rocking aromatics of kirsch liqueur lavender garrigue licorice and saddle leather to go with a medium-bodied supple and nicely textured profile. I-d like to see more mid-palate here but this is all about up-front fruit. Filling in nicely with air (tasted twice from multiple bottles) it should be enjoyed over the coming 7-8 years. Drink now-2021. - Jeb Dunnuck Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

A roasted juniper note leads the way with brick dust and tobacco accents lining the core of steeped damson plum and blackberry fruit. Minerally finish. Drink now through 2026.
