"From barrel, the sensationally rich and concentrated 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes (50% Grenache, 40% Mourvèdre and 10% Syrah aged in concrete tanks and small barrels) is more polished, elegant and seamless, with blockbuster notes of ripe black fruits, crushed herbs, pepper, plums and violets. You almost need a fork to drink this beauty, yet it’s never heavy or over the top, has incredible purity and present, ripe tannin. I followed this bottle for two days and it only got better with air. Châteauneuf du Pape lovers shouldn’t miss it!"
"From the northern sector of Châteauneuf du Pape. GRAND VENEUR Vieilles Vignes cuvee include the estate oldest plots. Thanks to time and an organic growing, roots go very deep in the soil. Yields are naturally low and grapes highly concentrated.
This wine has an incredible ageing potential and it will get benefit of your patience. We advice a consumption between 3 and 30 years after the vintage. Decant if young, until 5-6 years." -Winery
