About

93-95

"The 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes, an exclusive to the American importer, includes Grenache from vines planted in 1905. It's richer and rounder than the regular Châteauneuf-du-Pape, showing better balance and concentration, flavors that are fresher and brighter—more blueberry than dark plum—and an intriguing note of licorice on the finish. There's still a touch of warmth, but this looks special."

92-94 Jeb Dunnuck - jebdunnuck.com

"Cut from the same cloth, the 2017 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes has plenty of black licorice, roasted herbs, crushed rocks, and assorted red and black fruits. It has more tannins than the base cuvée yet a similar depth of fruit and texture."
