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 southern French wine region of the Rhone Valley has been home to wine-makers for over two thousand years, with the first grapevines of the region being cultivated in around 600 BCE when the ancient Greeks arrived with their knowledge of viticulture and eagerness to produce more wine. Today, the region is famed around the world for the excellence of its produce, and has dozens of wineries making the most of the wide range of grape varietals which flourish there. In the northern sub-region, the continental climate and brisk winds coming off the Central Massif allow wineries to grow a smaller range of varietals – predominantly Syrah, Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier, whereas the southern, more Mediterranean sub-region allows far more range. Here, dozens of varietals are grown for the production of white, red and rosé wines, all packed full of flavor and able to express the unique terroir they are grown on.

Country: France

France is renowned across the globe for its quality wines and the careful expertise which goes into making them, but what is truly remarkable about this relatively small country is the vast range of wines it produces in such huge amounts each year. Not only are the finest red wines in the world said to come from the beautiful regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy, but elsewhere in the country we find the Champagne region, and areas such as the Rhone Valley and the Loire, whose white wines consistently receive awards and accolades by the plenty. This range is a result of the great variety of climatic conditions and terrain found in France, coupled with generations of wine makers working within single appellations. Their knowledge of specific terroirs and grape varieties has, over time, perfected the production of wines within their region, and the end results continue to impress the world to this day.
