Janasse Châteauneuf du Pape Rouge 2016 J d 95 » $56 "...great bouquet of black raspberries, tapenade, crushed violets, and spring flowers...Full-bodied, incredibly elegant and seamless, it might be the finest traditional cuvée ever produced from this estate." Jeb Dunnuck (1413148) The Chaupin is a 100% varietal Grenache hailing from vines planted in the lieu-dit Chapouin in 1912. It is the most elegant and alluring of the Janasse lineup, yet able to mature in the cellar for over a decade. Janasse Châteauneuf du Pape Chaupin 2016 J d 99 » $85 "...kirsch, blackberries, smoked earth, graphite, and licorice on the nose. It's full-bodied, deep, pure, ultra-fine, and powerful on the palate and flirts with perfection." Jeb Dunnuck (1413147) The v ieilles v ignes is a blend of 85% Grenache, 10% m ourvèdre, and 5% Syrah, from vines that are 60 to 100 years old. It's is almost always in need of a few years in the cellar to come together, but once it does, the v ieilles v ignes is an experience like no other. Janasse Châteauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes 2016 J d 99 » $110 "...Full-bodied and beautifully concentrated, with tons of structure, it stays fresh and elegant, has sweet tannins, and a blockbuster finish. It's an incredible, borderline perfect wine..."
