Chateauneuf du Pape AOP, 'Vieilles Vignes', Domaine La Milliere
Lovely ruby red color of beautiful intensity. Very expressive ripe red and black fruit nose, floral aromas and fresh notes of liquorice. The beautifully full, silky mouth-feel has elegant minerality with refined and melted tannins. The very aromatic finish is highlighted by spicy freshness of liquorice.

Note: 89 points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Although organic farming methods in place, the 2013 vintage is not certified organic. 2014 vintage is certified organic. Freshness and natural liveliness and the key words to describe this vintage, which was late in the year and low in yield. With fruit at the fore and structure coupled with an airy quality, the wines of the 2013 vintage quite simply, bring pleasure and balance.
