94 Points Parker - limited                  
A great wine from France's Rhone Valley. 

94 Points Jeb Dunnuck:  "From an estate that seems to have hit another level over the past 5-7 years or so, the 2020 Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf Du Pape reveals a deeper plum/purple color as well as charming, complex aromas and flavors of ripe blackberries, mulberries, peppery garrigue, flowers, and orange blossom. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, it shows the more charming, mid-weight style of the vintage, has silky tannins, wonderful overall balance, and outstanding length. It's not going to match the top vintages from this estate, but it's going to put a smile on your face any time over the coming 15 years or so."

Le Vieux Donjon was established in 1979 between Lucien and Marie-José Michel, whose parents each owned vineyards in the region prior to their marriage. Upon the marriage of Lucien and Marie-José, those within the families combined to form what is now known as Le Vieux Donjon. The winery itself is made up of fourteen hectares of organic parcels, containing both red and white grapes. The vineyards are filled with incredibly old vines (as much as 80yrs), which they only pick from once the grapes have achieved perfect ripeness. Lucien and Marie-Jose’s daughter, Claire, also joined the team in 2008. Lucien and Claire work together to destem (only when necessary), or pass the fruit directly into cement tanks to begin the fermentation process. The wine is then pumped downstairs into foudres and left to age 18-20 months.
