Totally opaque black dark red colour with a deep dark red hue. Pronounced aromas of black raspberries, liquorice and some ripe black cherries are entwined with hints of incense, dried meat, earth and pepper. Full bodied, very rich and concentrated the palate oozes succulent black fruit flavours of black raspberries, liquorice and black cherries over a background of incense infusions, lightly scorched earth and spice. Dry chewy finish with a solid base of grippy tannins providing the framework. Outstanding power and depth with a long aftertaste of black raspberries, liquorice, black cherries, lightly scorched earth, dried meats and spice.
Cellar 6-8 years.
Coming in at one-third the normal production due to the decimated Grenache yields, the 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah. In addition, since no Cuvee Speciale was made, this cuvee benefited from all the top grapes. Fabulously concentrated, with a textured, medium to full-bodied feel, it offers up impressive black raspberry, cassis, graphite and ground-pepper aromas and flavors. Possessing good acidity and building tannic grip, this beauty has the texture to drink reasonably well on release, yet should have 10-15 years of overall longevity as well.

Inky ruby. Pungent dark berry, cherry pit, cola and sassafras scents, with hints of allspice and woodsmoke in the background. Shows very good clarity and lift on the palate, with juicy blackcurrant, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors fleshing out and gaining sweetness in the mid-palate. Finishes sappy, smoky and expansive, with supple tannins and an echo of vibrant dark fruits and floral pastilles.
