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.

    Wine review by mark


  • Le Vieux Donjon Red Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape 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. On entry more mushroom and acidic wild red fruit (like pincherry); there is a slight acerbity on the finish common with Grenache (in my experi... Read More

  • Le Vieux Donjon Red Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2010

    Snoothrank:

    The 2010 Le Vieux Donjon showed a beautiful and highly expressive nose with aromas of black raspberry jam, charred meat, chalky minerals, dried floral notes, and wild herbs. On the palate it had velvety textures with a dark brooding feel yet somehow juicy and fresh with ripe black fruits, exotic spice, Espagnole and black pepper in the backgroun... Read More

  • Le Vieux Donjon Red Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2007

    Snoothrank:

    The nose opened over time to show blackberry, dark currant, crisp bacon, ginger spice, herbes de Provence and a hint of citrus. On the palate it was full bodied with dark fruit tones hinting at blueberry and plum, along with dark earth, minerals and fig, which last through the finish, coating the palate with intense fruit extract and a hint of t...

  • Le Vieux Donjon Red Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape 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
