    Also gorgeous, but in a more forward, perfumed style, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape is loaded with kirsch, wild strawberry, licorice, Asian spice and wild herb-like aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, sweetly fruited, voluptuous and textured, it's hard to resist now, but will age gracefully.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

    Rock-solid, with a big, winey core of cassis, blackberry paste and crushed fig fruit pushed by smoldering tobacco, juniper, mesquite and warm, bittersweet cocoa notes. The muscular finish has lots of grip in reserve.

    Vivid purple. Powerful cherry and dark berry aromas are complemented by a sexy floral nuance. Smooth and deep on the palate, offering juicy red and dark berry preserve flavors that become spicier with air. The floral quality carries through on the subtly sweet, very persistent finish.

    Very ruby color. A nicely balanced overall wine. Great depth, and deep dark fruit, with a nice barnyard character. Drinkable, and in balance tannic structure.

Le Vieux Donjon was founded by Marcel Michel, who did the first bottling at his domain in 1966. Since 1979 Marie Jose and Lucien Michel have run the property. The estate includes 14 ha of Chateauneuf du Pape, of which one ha is planted to white varieties. The vinification process is done in the traditional method with only one cuvee made of red and of white Chateauneuf du Pape. The cellars are situated on the route from Chateauneuf du Pape to Courthezon and the buildings at Avenue Saint Joseph serve as the private mansion for the family.
