Dom Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2017

Hold on to your hats wine-lovers, available 1st week of August is our Super-Star Châteauneuf-du-Pape  - Le Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2017!

"Along with a small handful of other estates, I consider Claire Fabre’s le Vieux Donjon at the top of the heap when it comes to classic, age-worthy and traditionally made Châteauneuf-du-Papes."
— Jeb Dunnuck, RobertParker.com 

Brother and sister team François Michel and Claire Fabre produce fabulous red & white Châteauneuf-du-Pape. You will find no special Cuvées here - just the one classic Domaine red & white made from very old vines (ala Clos des Papes) They are slow, quietly developing wines, pure and authentic, and from a highly regarded address.

Finesse and power, married to vivacity, is a pretty good summation of the traditional house style here. While there is plenty of intense fruit character and weight evident in these great wines, there is also an alluring freshness with assertively perfumed bouquets and rounded, fully absorbed tannins. All of the staff here at Wine Direct are super-fans of this Domaine, so I expect they will slip out of the warehouse quicker than most - There are just 60 bottles - so jump in quick!
