See Decanter experts' tasting notes and drinking window for Domaine de Villeneuve 2009.
Villeneuve shies away from over-extracted, oaky, alcoholic and fashionable styles of Châteauneuf. This Grenache-dominated blend is perfumed, juicy and elegant. Whole bunches and cement tanks set the tone. Dense black cherries, spice and a poised tannic structure balanced by fresh minerality.
