Winemaker Notes

Dark red in color, this wine offers aromas of black fruit jam, blackberry, garrigue, lavender and violets. On the palate, it shows ripe berry and prune with elegant tannins on the finish.

Pair with red meat, cheeses and fowl (prepared with sauce based in wine, olive and spices such as curry and ginger).

Critical Acclaim

WS 91
Wine Spectator
Delivering steeped red currant and raspberry fruit liberally laced with singed chestnut, smoldering savory and roasted cedar accents, this alluring red has solid old-school grip, but with a fresh sanguine streak to enliven the finish. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Because of Vidal-Fleury's commitment to long élevage, this is the first Wine Advocate review of this wine from bottle, tasted nearly five years after the vintage. As one might expect, the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape, a blend of 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 5% Mourvèdre, is showing some signs of maturity. Leather and spice dominate the aromas, while attractive red fruit notes still show up on the palate. Medium to full in body, with softening tannins, this would be ideal for drinking over the next several years.

Vidal-Fleury Winery Image

Vidal Fleury was founded in 1781 as a wine grower and proprietor of vineyards in the Cote Rotie. With more than two centuries of continuous operation, it's undisputedly the oldest functioning winery and wine firm in the Rhone Valley.

Founder Joseph Vidal strove to produce wines that expressed the typicity of the various soils and to achieve the highest degree of quality possible. True to the founder's goals. the winery continues to produce wines that are the finest expression of their appelation. Today Vidal Fleury offers a comprehensive range of red, white and rose wines from the Rhone Valley. Recognizing the enormous potential of Vidal Fleury and the value of its brand, the successful Rhone winemaker Marcel Guigal bought the company in 1986. Modern equipment in a spotless environment is used to implement the traditional methods in winemaking.

All red wines and selected white wines are matured adn aged in oak barrels and casks. Selected cuvees are aged in new oak for part or all of the maturation process.
