Rhone.  2010 Le Vieux Donjon Chateauneuf du Pape $53-$70 Holding on to tradition, this offers up savory olive and meaty accents that will emerge with time adding tremendous complexity to the core of black fruit.

  • Château du Donjon Minervois Rosé 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Notwithstanding some complaints by friends about the scent of this wine, I find the nose quite enticing: the soft red fruit has camperis mushroom and bacon fat in the background plus some barnyard straw.

  • Le Vieux Donjon Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This had the most complex nose of the night, filled with spicy sweet/tart red fruit, fines herbs, a little beef jerky, and dustings of coffee and black pepper with a developing olive note. Smooth in the mouth, this seemed a little soft next to its peers, with a palate that showed fine dark berry fruit framed by flavors of olives and herbs that r... Read More
