2013 Chateau De Vaudieu Val De Dieu Chateaneuf-Du-Pape 750ml
The rich, textured and beautifully perfumed 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee Val de Dieu is the same blend as the classic cuvee, yet was raised all in barrel. Loaded with notions of cassis, orange liqueur, chocolate and toasted bread, it’s medium to full-bodied, has tons of sweet fruit and ultra-fine tannin. It lacks that extra dimension of a top vintage, but I’d happily drink this beauty anytime over the coming decade. Rated 97 Points Lisa's Staff.
