2014 Le Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1278865 92-94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Brilliant ruby-red. Smoke-accented aromas of red and dark berry preserves, star anise and candied flowers convey a subtle hint of garrigue in the background. Sweet, seamless and broad on the palate, offering concentrated black raspberry and rose pastille flavors that turn spicier with air. Rich but vibrant as well, with no excess fat. Supple tannins build steadily on a very long, incisive finish that leaves behind notes of dark berries and candied flowers. (JR) Inner quote mark (4/2016)

92 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Claire Fabre turned out a bright, vivacious Châteauneuf-du-Pape from her vineyards, 37 acres devoted mainly to old vines, some over 100 years old. It tastes of red raspberries and black plums, mint, herbs and earth. The tannins are firm yet elastic, like long, lean muscles, the wine approachable now yet capable of aging well over the next five to ten years. Inner quote mark (12/2017)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Sleek and fresh in feel, with bright cherry, damson plum and blood orange fruit flavors racing along, flecked with light shiso leaf and iron accents. Gives way to a perfumy but persistent finish. Drink now through 2024. (JM) Inner quote mark (12/2016)

89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape is a classic blend of 75% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault. Notes of sweet kirsch, currants, garrigue and while pepper all emerge from this medium-bodied, elegant and balanced Châteauneuf du Pape that shows the more forward, mid-weight style of the vintage. It has class and elegance, but I suspect it’s best consumed in its first decade or so. (JD) Inner quote mark (10/2015)
