Domaine de Villeneuve, Vieilles Vignes, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Rhône 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. 19.5pts/20
