Le Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2010 (France)

Red blend

The Rhône Valley's Châteauneuf-du-Pape district was blessed with superb weather in 2010, yielding one of the finest-quality harvests of the past three decades. Le Vieux Donjon, a solid producer, worked magic with this big red. It's silky and perfectly ripe, with a sumptuous mix of berries, licorice and southern-French wild herbs. Drink it now or let it gain complexity over the next decade. $59.94 in B.C.
