Domaine de la Janasse Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2009
"...75-80% Grenache and the rest Syrah and Mourvedre, but Sabon is increasing the Cinsault in the final blend. Aged completely in wood foudres and the triangular wood cuves called tronconique, it is a dense ruby/purple-colored, full-bodied, powerful wine revealing sweet notes of kirsch, black currants, smoked herbs, underbrush and barbecue spices. A thick, rich, full-bodied, pure, long Chateauneuf with abundant tannin that is largely disguised by the concentration of fruit, it should drink well for 10-12+ years...91-93" WA 10/10

Red wine - 2009 - Domaine De La Janasse Chateauneuf-du-Pape V.V. - France - Region: Rh
The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape is probably one of the strongest andldquo;regularandrdquo; efforts I have ever tasted from Sabon. This dense purple blend of 75 to 80% Grenache and the rest Mourvedre and Syrah, aged in truncated wood cuves and foudres, has a beautiful, sweet nose of black cherry jam intermixed with roasted herbs, black currants, forest floor and a hint of charcoal. The wine has great intensity, full-bodied opulence, and a striking seductiveness that is already irresistible. It should continue to drink well for 12andndash;15 years.

One of my favorite wines, the single vineyard 2009 Domaine de la Janasse Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Chaupin comes from a cooler terroir in the northeastern part of the appellation.

Powerfully rendered, with a large core of fig sauce, plum preserves and dark cassis notes that course along, pushed by anise and roasted apple wood flavors and a muscular, graphite-filled finish. Still quite densely packed on the finish, this needs time to stretch out. Best from 2013 through 2023.
(100% grenache, raised in a combination of foudres and demi-muids): Opaque ruby. Pungent aromas of ripe red and blue fruits show liqueur-like power and depth. Large-scaled, expansive and rich, offering explosive raspberry and boysenberry flavors c... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

The elevation showed flavors of cherries, raspberries and black olives while keeping the soil's character of smoothness and melted tannins. An elegant and powerful grenache!
