Domaine de la Janasse Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Chaupin 2009
"The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Chaupin is aged in foudre (2/3) and 600-liter demi-muids (1/3). It may not reach the heights of the sensational 2007, but it is a gorgeous effort that represents Grenache at its finest. Intense black cherry liqueur notes intermixed with lavender, licorice, crushed rock and floral characteristics cascade from the glass of this unctuously textured, full-bodied wine with silky tannins and low acidity. Fleshy and full, it is a terrific example of Grenache from a great terroir. Drink it over the next 10-15 years...92-94" WA 10/10
The nose was elegant yet with razor sharp intensity, giving aromas of crushed blackberry, currants, dark chocolate, pencil led and sweet exotic spices, which filled the senses. On the palate, it was like velvet but with an acid profile that kept it lively and fresh as flavors of raspberry, black cherry liquor, licorice and herbs flowed into the long finish, which saturated the palate with dark berries, peppery spice, and hints of tannin.
