The nose was plush with ripe blackberry fruits, violet candies, herbs and sweet spices. On the palate, it was velvety with intense concentration, yet balanced with acidity that kept it fresh and juicy. Sweet blackberry, cola and violets from the bouquet filled the senses. The finish was remarkably long with lasting dark fruits that seemed to change from ripe to tart as they melted from the palate

The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape is the most widely available (nearly 30,000+ bottles produced even in a small vintage such as 2010) of Janasseandrsquo;s Chateauneufs. It exhibits a dense purple color along with a glorious perfume of blackberries, creosote, scorched earth, smoked herbs, cassis and kirsch. Full-bodied with impressive purity, structure and precision, this is a more reserved, backward and structured effort than its 2009 and 2007 counterparts.

A potential candidate for perfection is the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Chaupin, which may turn out to eclipse my favorite Chaupin to date, the 2007, and closely behind it, the 2009. Dense blackish/purple, with extraordinary intensity, precision and foc... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Very ripe, with layers of dark fig, raspberry coulis, blackberry paste and steeped currant fruit. Well-defined, featuring mouthwatering spice, anise and graphite notes that provide contrast and definition. The dense, brambly grip is pleasantly embedded on the finish. Best from 2015 through 2030.

The 2010 Domaine de la Janasse Châteauneuf-du-Pape, tasted out of foudre, might just eclipse the stunning '07 and '09!

Opaque violet color. Spicy raspberry, licorice, minerals and an exotic whiff of incense on the nose. Supple in texture, with a velvety quality to its red berry preserve, cherry, mineral and rose pastille flavors. Finishes broad, long and seductively sweet, with slow-building tannins and very good clarity.

Another killer effort from Sabon, and one of my favorites of the entire portfolio is the 2010 Cotes du Rhone Les Garrigues. This wine is 100% percent Grenache from old vines aged in foudre and comes from just across the appellation border of Chateaun... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Winemaker's Notes:

95 points Rhone Report: Showing brilliantly from tank last year, and not disappointing from bottle this year, the 2010 Domaine de la Janasse Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a stunning bottle of wine! A blend of 80% Grenache and equal parts Syrah and Mourvedre, its opaque purple color is followed by knockout aromas of blackberry liqueur, flower oil, liquid mineral, licorice, and graphite. Not losing a beat on the palate either, with a full-bodied, structured, and edgy feel, as well as brilliant purity of fruit, this serious, age-worthy effort needs a handful of years in the cellar, and has 15-20 years or more of total longevity. While the chase will be on for the Cuvée Chaupin and Vieilles Vignes bottlings, do not overlook this wine! (Sep 2012)
