A deep ruby, full-bodied CNDP with rich layers of red and black fruit, damson plum, ripe dark cherry and wild herb flavours on the palate. Could easily cellar for another 15 years.

Châteauneuf-Du-Pape food pairings: crown pork roast, veal chops in red wine sauce, Margherita pizza.

Reviews and Ratings

Le Vieux Donjon 2016 is a juicy Châteauneuf-Du-Pape with loads of dark berry, cherry, cocoa flavours layered with garrigue herbs, licorice and cedar spice flavours. Great cellaring candidate with potential for a long life. Enjoy in from 2021 and for the next 15 years thereafter. - Community Wine Reviews
