Domaine de la Janasse Chaupin Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2009 (1500ml)

$189

One of my favorites...An absolutely magnificent wine...this dense purple wine has noble sweetness and an extraordinary concentration of lavender, black cherry liqueur, licorice, and minerality. Full-bodied, with silky tannins, a multi-dimensional, unctuously textured, voluptuous palate and a stunning finish, this wine is outrageously delicious and a phenomenal expression of old-vine Grenache. It should drink well for up to 20+ years. Robert Parker

Ripe plum berry jam, hint of spice on the nose. Full bodied and round on the palate. High alcohol. Medium finish. A bit unbalanced from the tannin and acid side IMHO

Pretty solid juice. $90 is a little on the high side but definitely tasty.

Tasted two bottles of the 2009 vintage. It aged badly and unfortunately was past its prime time.

Still a bit austere and tight but a deep and rich palate of cherry liquor and spice. Long lasting finish of white pepper and strawberry jam. Has a lot of life yet as the tannins are still formidable
