Going to visit my inlaws on the south shore so I'm picking up afew more bottles of 2010 Vieux Donjon CDP(96 pts #16 and 50.75 tax/in).I tried it a few weeks ago(tasting macine) and it was excellent.


Was there any alcohol heat-burn? I am rather sensitive to high alcohol and I notice this one weighs in at about 15 per cent.

The 2010 Vieux Donjon was balanced with nice acidity smooth tannins and a long finish. This was not a thick high octane fruit bomb Wink

Very nice. Did you pick these up locally?


I did, through the distributor. Not cheap, but after getting dinged on Saturday trying to cross the border with wine from the US, I gave in and paid Ontario prices!


Who is the distributor in Ontario?
2004 Poderi Aldo Conterno Barolo
2007 Poderi Aldo Conterno Barolo Cicala
2009 Azienda Agricola Montevertine Le Pergole Torte Toscana IGT
2010 M. Chapoutier Côtes du Roussillon Domaine de Bila-Haut (Can't get enough of this, amazing QPR)
Alvear Pedro Ximénez Montilla-Moriles Solera 1927
Went to the LWS to pick up some recent online purchases and added these:

2010 Vieux Telegraphe La Crau CdP

2010 Beaucastel CdP – VT and Beau are 2 CdP I buy in every good vintage.

2010 Charles Audoin Gevrey Chambertin – Have not tried this producer yet.

1995 Lopez De Heredia Bosconia Gran Reserva – Latest vintage finally hit the LWS. A no brainer must buy in every vintage for me.

@CSM --> I'd be curious to hear the price you get quoted by the agent. If it's not outrageous and you are interested in splitting, I'd probably like to get 3 bottles.

PS - I was seeing it available for ~60 Euros in Italy a couple of weeks ago.

I'll let you know when I hear back. Nothing on their website. On sale for $68 a bottle in Buffalo right now which is a crazy good price.

One of my many (newer) mini-obsessions thanks to a certain friend. Next I'll be buying swords to remove corks from champagne (I told my wife I was just kidding..........maybe)


I've got a couple of swords and can/have opened champagne with one. My wife has never let me get a true champagne saber though... Frown
