Description

Family-owned Le Vieux Donjon is one of the most celebrated wineries in Châteauneuf-du-Pape since its formal founding in 1966. Keeping things simple has always proven successful for the Michel family who follow a traditional approach. Grapes from several different parcels are sourced from this wine including Mont-Redon (Grenache), Cabrières (Grenache), Rayas (Grenache) and ‘Les Pialons’ (Grenache & Syrah). The average age of the Grenache vines is between 70 to 80 years old.Once the fruit has arrived at the cellar, the Michels will destem (if necessary) or pass the fruit directly onto an elevated conveyer that carries the grapes to the top of one of six tanks where the grapes will remain for about three weeks. After vinification the wine is pumped downstairs into foudres ranging from two years to ‘very’ old. The wine is left to age anywhere between 18-20 months before bottling. The final blend is 75% Grenache 15% Syrah 5% Mourvedre 5% Others.The Wine Advocate scored this 95 points say…
