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

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
