2020 Chateau de Vaudieu Chateauneuf-du-pape

2020 Chateau de Vaudieu Chateauneuf-du-pape

We love finding and tasting new Chateauneuf-du-pape from Costco, and here’s a new addition to the wine aisles that turned out to be a huge score.

Outside of the Kirkland Chateauneuf-du-pape that is priced at $20, it’s hard to find good Chateauneuf at a reasonable price.  Usually you have to spend $40-$50+ to get the highly rated and super tasty ones.

Costco’s price on this bottle was $30 and online it looks to be going for a little more than that, around $34-$37. 

The Costco placard nicely displays the Wine Spectator 94-point rating, and in clicking around online we found a 93 from Jeb Dunnuck, who is one of our favorites.  The wine is mostly Grenache with smaller parts Syrah and Mourvedre.

In the glass it pours a medium ruby in color; good contrast of dark and red fruit; some black cherry and raspberry flavors; notes of dark chocolate, vanilla and cream towards the finish; pepper and spice linger in the finish.

This was a delicious Chateauneuf and one of the better ones we’ve had in the price point.  Our rating is going to match Jeb’s at 93 points.  This is a treat, an excellent buy and an easy addition to our Top Picks list. Rating: 93 points (a Costco Wine Top Pick)

Just picked up a few bottles of Louis Bernard 2020 Chateauneuf at the Hoover AL location while looking for this bottle. Will keep a lookout for it! Cheers!

Any idea on when this may shine if dropping in the cellar for a few years?

I’d be curious to taste at 5-7 years. Could likely go longer.
