Thursday, May 02, 2013 - Vieux Donjon Vertical (Private Residence): Rich dark brooding color with intense aromas of raspberry, red fruits, garrigue, and tones of herbs de provence. Entry is lively with plenty chewy yet round tannins that will ensure its long life. Body is lush with layers of red fruit and plum confit finish medium in length. 93+ as I'm sure this wine will grow in time.
Very promising young wine from an outstanding year. Drank in a vertical of the '99, '03 and '07. This wine excelled and only came in second behind the beautiful '07 which achieved great purity in the expression of the fruit.
