The 18th century Château de Vaudieu has been in the Bréchet family for over 50 years and today is run by Laurent Bréchet, the grandson of the original owner. The name 'Vaudieu' originates from 'Vallée de Dieu', or 'Valley of God', a reference to the beauty of the area around Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Vaudieu has 70 hectares of vineyards in total, of which 60 hectares are planted with red varieties on prized sites that are located just east of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, neighbouring the vineyards of the famed Château Rayas.
This wine is dark ruby red in colour. On the nose, there are intense aromas of cherries and raspberries with notes of herbs, liquorice and black pepper. It has a lively acidity with a good concentration of supple tannins evolving towards graphite notes. A long, lingering finish.
