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.

A dark, almost black color in the glass. The nose is intense showing dark blackberry fruit with beef broth, plum sauce, savory herbs, mint. The palate is rich, full and intense with pumpkin pie spice, blackberries, raisin, tar and black licorice. The finish is beautifully long and full of ripe cherry fruit. This was my wine of the night.

Janasse Chaupin '00 To me, this represents all that is intoxicating about the perfume of old vine Grenache. The sensual bouquet of allspice, cinammon stick, cassis, cherry liqueur and the black licorice essence rocket from the glass. The mouthfeel is pure and lush, expanding over the palate w/ fabulous breadth and depth. The intensity of the '00 Chaupin keeps its flavors alive, which never seeming heavy or dull. I've had this wine numerous times and this is by far the most impressive showing yet; just an outstanding vintage for Janasse, 95 points.

Well-focused, featuring unadorned pear and yellow apple fruit, with a hint of melon rind framing the finish. Pretty and refreshing. Drink now.

Bone dry with real power. Aromas of peach and apricot, excellent concentration on the palate with vibrant acidity, a full mouthfeel and refreshing acidity on the finish.

Starting out, the 2012 Cotes du Rhone Blanc is a brilliant, mostly tank-aged blend of 50% Grenache Blanc, 15% Clairette, 15% Bourboulenc and the balance Viognier and Roussanne (which were aged in barrel). Beautiful stuff, with rich white currants, citrus and tinges of minerality on the nose, it has fantastic freshness and focus on the palate, with clean, nicely defined aromas and flavor. Medium-bodied and perfectly balancing richness and freshness, it should be purchased by the case and consumed over the coming year or two. Drink now.

85% grenache, 10% mourvedre, and 5% syrah. Restrained and backward, the nose exhibits a hint of tobacco and ash but, overall, this is not a showy wine. The closed aromas are reflected in a compact flavor profile that is restrained and undeveloped. Th... Chuck Hayward.

Tasted from barrel, the 2009 Domaine de la Janasse Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes looks to be fantastic with loads of licorice-infused dark fruit, scorched earth and roasted garrigue on the nose.
