LE VIEUX DONJON

Chateauneuf-du-Pape

Rhone, France

[93 pts Stephen Tanzer]

[93 pts Wine Advocate]

Varietal(s):
Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre

Tasting Notes:

This is the best Chateauneuf deal you will see all year from anyone. Provencal herbs, plum, blackberry, and spice box aromas are followed by roasted juniper and sweet tobacco accents. An old-school style, a core of plum, black cherry, black currant, tapenade, saddle leather, garrigue, earth and gamy meaty notes round out the palate. Long on the finish, this exceptional Chateauneuf can be enjoyed now and over the next 25 years.

Blink and It's Gone | A Rare Chateauneuf Opportunity!

— LIMITED QUANTITIES —

($39.95 per bottle / $479.40 per case) Without revisiting Economics 101, evaluating the drop in the Euro or figuring out how planes stay in the air, know this: this blue-chip wine typically sells for $65; it is one of the top five Chateauneuf producers; it is a perennial Top 100 wine that has even cracked the Top 10 on many occasions; this is the best Chateauneuf deal you will see all year from anyone.
    We saw the recent acquisition price of this iconic Chateauneuf and jumped all over it. We have 40 cases available and they will all sell. We are limiting this offer to a three case maximum per customer.
    If you are not familiar with Le Vieux Donjon, it is a legendary Rhone winery that should be on every wine collector and enthusiast's checklist with the likes of Beaucastel, Clos du Papes, and Pagau.
    Besides the ridiculous price and amazing depth of flavors, the change of seasons is the perfect time to enjoy the hearty Rhone style of Chateauneuf-du-Papes. It is an ideal wine for roasts, stews, lamb, grilled meats and at this price, the best tailgate pairing ever.
    When this wine sells out, please don't say we didn't tell you so. From 80 year old vines, the wine boasts Provencal herbs, plum, blackberry, and spice box aromas are followed by roasted juniper and sweet tobacco accents. An old-school style, a core of plum, black cherry, black currant, tapenade, saddle leather, garrigue, earth and gamy meaty notes round out the palate.
