2012 Chateau de Vaudieu Chateauneuf-du-Pape Review



Would I rather win $1 million or never drink Chateauneuf-du-Pape wine again? Well $1 million but I would be totally sad about the wine thing. I mean I'd probably buy some bomb ass wine to get over it but yeah it'd be sad.

I purchased this wine on my wine buying adventure back in 2015 and have been holding it ever since. This vintner traces its roots back to the 1700s when times were simpler and chicks had to totally do what you asked them to do. Now I gotta take the trash and out and shit.

In da nose I got tobacco, black currant and a slight bit of chalk. Chalk is not a bad thing - that can lend itself to earthy notes or mineral-esque traits that are often quite desired much like an AR-15. In da mouf I got a nice spicy pepper, herbs and a beautiful black cherry just asking to be chewed upon.

I loved this wine. I loved everything about it. I let it sit for about two hours before getting into it and I'm so glad I did. This is what wine should be and this is what you should be looking for in a wine.
