Le Vieux Donjon is managed by Claire Fabre (Michel), third generation winemaker and manager of the property. The organically farmed Le Vieux Donjon produces just two wines every year, a red and a white, ensuring that their best selection of the harvest is represented in each bottle with the red always a rough blend of 75% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre and the balance a mix of other permitted varieties.
91 points from Wine Advocate:
"Starting with the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape, it’s a forward, supple and sweetly fruited effort that offers up loads of kirsch, garrigue, licorice and pepper on the nose. Playing in the medium-bodied, elegant spectrum, it will evolve nicely for 7-8 years."
