Wine rated 95-96/100 by our Committee !


Carried by old Grenache vines, some of which are a hundred years old, the 2019 Red Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Vieilles Vignes takes full advantage of this sunny and intense vintage, displaying a floral nose with peppery accents and a very sober oaky touch. The palate reveals a harmonious and fresh palate, with a beautiful maturity, which is very well balanced. This wine has the audacity to remain digestible and fresh despite its high level of maturity. A challenge to be kept for 10 years or more and to be served with a rib of beef or a leg of lamb. Rated 96/100 by the Committee.


Hand harvested. The grapes are handled by gravity in underground tanks. Successive punchings of the cap are made to extract the polyphenols. Aging on lees between 18 and 20 months in vats.


Bright red with garnet reflections.


Delicate with beautiful floral aromas enhanced by smoky notes delivered by the presence of Syrah; an aromatic palette of ripe fruit with peppery nuances.


This wine reveals a delicate and consistent palate


Serve at 16 to 18°C.

Food and wine pairing:

Grilled rib of beef with thyme, leg of lamb cooked at low temperature, squab with peas.

A prodigy of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, with two stars in the RVF Green Guide, the Domaine de Villeneuve has discreetly developed its vision of what makes a great wine. Its very old vines, biodynamic viticulture, and careful ageing create bottles of great depth and complexity, of beautiful classicism.
