    Wine Advocate Notes
    93 Points, Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Hints of white peach, pineapple, melon and lime appear on the nose of the 2019 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc, a tank-aged blend of Clairette and Roussanne. It's medium to full-bodied, showing some warmer, riper notes of peach on the mid-palate, then balancing those with hints of white pepper and citrus on the long, mouthwatering finish." 09/20
    Vinous Media
    95 Points, Josh Raynolds, Vinous: "Dark violet. Highly fragrant red/blue fruit preserve, potpourri and garrigue aromas and building licorice and exotic spice accents on the nose. Impressively concentrated and penetrating on the palate, offering alluringly sweet cherry, boysenberry, candied lavender and spicecake flavors that tighten up steadily through the back half. Shows plenty of power but comes of lithe and finishes extremely long, smooth and spicy, with polished tannins lending subtle grip." 11/21
    Wine Spectator Notes
    96 Points, Wine Spectator: "A brick house, this sports a chiseled edge as a mix of juniper, cassis, plum, bay leaf, charcoal and graphite notes all align thanks to the racy structure and vibrant energy. Built for the cellar, with a lovely old school whiff through the finish. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault. Best from 2024 through 2038." 10/21
    Decanter Notes
    98 Points, Matt Walls, Decanter: "Very full-bodied with a lovely sweetness to the fruit, fine tannins and great freshness. Really shot through with juicy, sweet, chocolatey tannins and great concentration. Very well balanced however, not heavy or aggressive with a stony minerality on the finish. The most impressive barrel sample of Vieux Donjon I've ever tasted - this is profound stuff. This traditional estate owns 18ha of Châteauneuf, with considerable plantings of old-vine Grenache. Fermented in concrete vats, then aged in concrete and old foudres. (Drink between 2025-2048)" 10/20
    99 Points, Jeb Dunnuck, "I was able to taste the 2019 Châteauneuf-du-Pape multiple times, and it’s the finest vintage I’ve ever tasted from this estate, surpassing even the 2016. Lovers of classic, impeccably made Châteauneuf du Pape should back up the truck on this beauty. A wine of incredible richness and depth, as well as elegance, it has a gorgeous nose of peppery herbs, blackberries, garrigue, cured meats, and sandalwood. Full-bodied and concentrated, it builds incrementally on the palate and is perfectly balanced, with sensational purity, ripe tannins, and a great, great finish. There’s nothing over the top or out of place, and traditionally made Châteauneuf du Pape doesn’t get much better. It needs 2-4 years of bottle age and will shine for well over two decades. Bravo!" 11/21
