Tasting Notes:
tasted: October 14, 2006 , from a member
"Don't really remember what this tasted like anymore, but remember than none of us were particularly enamored with this wine. We liked the Guy Bernard Cote Rotie much, much better. The scores were very high on this wine though."

"92-95 points: A very strong vintage for this traditionally made Chateauneuf du Pape, the 2003 a blend of 80% grenache, 10% syrah and the rest mourvedre and cinsault, has a deep ruby/plum/purple color and a big sweet nose of dried Provencal herbs, licorice, seaweed and spicebox. The wine is massively concentrated, relatively high in alcohol by the standards here (15% plus on their component parts) and has a long, concentrated, chewy finish with high tannin and equally high extract. If there is one Chateauneuf du Pape that smells like an open-air Provencal spice, flower and food market, it is Vieux Donjon. It is a classic, concentrated essence of Provence, all in an alcoholic beverage. this wine will need 4-5 years of cellaring when released and drink well for 15-20 years" Best 2007-2020
