This cuvée comes from four plots located on different soils that perfectly match when assembled. Firstly a southern pebbly soil that brings body and power. Secondly a Chaupin-like soil for freshness and acidity. A third red clay pebbly soil in the north of the appellation that brings structure and body. And finally a sandy-limestone soil for smoothness.

The flagship wine of the estate, still the highest in international rankings. The color is dark with purple reflections. The nose, with discreet aromas of crushed black fruits and garrigue, is just waiting to melt into a noble and fresh material. Keep it at least ten years before serving on a jugged hare Royale.

"Incorporating 8% Mourvèdre, 12% Syrah and 5% other permitted variety, 60% destemmed, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Vieilles Vignes sports a deep, inky color as well as sensational notes of black currants, smoked meats, earth and crushed rocks. Deep, rich, unctuous and decadent, with huge extract and richness, yet never over the top or overripe, it's a killer wine that's going to flirt with perfection on release." 98-100 Jeb Dunnuck
