LeDomduVin: Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf du Pape 2019

Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf du Pape 2019

I selected this wine for the welcome cocktail of a film screening event, a few days ago, and it showed fantastically well. 

I was pleased, even though it is a sacrilege to open a Châteauneuf du Pape so young, even more of a crime to pour it into plastic cups. 😱😱😱😱😱😱😄👍🍷

Le Vieux Donjon Chateauneuf du Pape 2019

Nice dark garnet color, it boasted warm and comforting aromas of dark berries and plum, with mineral, earthy, and stony notes. The palate was opened, rich, ample, and generous, without being heavy, layered with similar flavors as the nose with scorched earth nuances, balanced, juicy, and long, and so easy to drink in a very bistro-isch way, with or without food. Loved it. Great value for money. 

Cheers! Santé!
