Le Vieux Donjon 2018 Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a deep ruby, full-bodied CNDP rich with layers of ripe cherries, raspberry, baking spice and cocoa flavours finishing long and luxurious on the palate. Drink or hold, but could easily cellar for 10 years or more.

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

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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