Le Vieux Donjon Chateauneuf du Pape 2012
Man, we have to sit down. Maybe have a martini to steady the nerves. WOW wow wow! Vieux Donjon in 2012 at a price anywhere near this is simply UNHEARD of! But that’s what we do here, we turn reality on its rear most days. Incredible!
We really hope you are getting this before we sell out, because…CHATEAUNEUF! The soaring, kirschy, sweet herb, licorice spice, holiness of Chateauneuf lifts our spirits and our wings..OK, sorry, that’s too much. But, man, we love it and Vieux Donjon is as classic as it gets. This price...crazy. Anyway, back to your regularly scheduled gushing…
Kirsch, pure and fresh as the driven snow. Cherries, savory soy, sweet jam, spicecake, sweet flowers, all in a spectacularly lovely, elegant but concentrated mouth. How many ways can you say wow? This is drinking terrifically RIGHT NOW, at this moment, but will only improve for the next few years if you can wait! LOAD UP while we have it!! Have a great weekend!!
