Professional Wine Reviews for Chateau De Vaudieu Chateauneuf Du Pape Val De Dieu Red Rhone Blend 2013

Rated 93 by Decanter
Opaque ruby. Deeply pitched, oak-spiced aromas of fresh black and blue fruits, along with hints of cracked pepper and incense. Juicy and expansive on the palate, offering sweet boysenberry and black raspberry flavors that gain energy with air. This rich yet lively Châteauneuf finishes with excellent clarity and smooth, slow-building tannins. (Vinous)
Rated 93 by Robert Parker
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.

Winery Chateau De Vaudieu

Region: Rhone Valley

The Rhone Valley of southern France is a particularly fascinating wine region, with a history that stretches back to at least six hundred BCE, when the ancient Greeks first began cultivating vines there. The region itself is split into two distinct sub-regions, with the northern sub-region being famed for its production of exceptional Syrah, Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier wines, packed full of interesting character and expressing the terroir found there. The southern sub-region is home to an enormous variety of grapes, and produces red, white and rosé wines, and some of the world's most famous and adored blended wines. The continental climate of the region is ideal for growing grapes, and the winds which blow from the Central Massif help temper the heat in the vineyards, leading to very ripe fruits holding plenty of flavor.

Country: France

French winemakers are subjected to several laws and regulations regarding the wines they produce, and how they can be labeled and sold. Such procedures are designed to increase the overall quality of the country's produce, and also to ensure that wines made in each particular region or appellation are of a character and type which is representative of the area. Thankfully for consumers of wine world-wide, the French have a particularly high reputation to uphold, and seem to do so flawlessly. Every year, wineries from all over France produce millions upon millions of bottles of fine wine, making the most of their native grape varieties and the excellent terrain which covers most of the country. From the expensive and exquisite red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, to the white wines and cremants of central France, the French are dedicated to providing the world with wines of the highest quality and most distinctive character.
