Domaine de la Janasse Vieilles Vignes Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2010 (1500ml)

$429

The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is black purple as well, but slightly more restrained and lower in alcohol, with more noticeable tannins and acidity. Nevertheless, this is still a phenomenally concentrated wine, with notes of barbecue spices, blackberry and black currant fruit, smoked herbs, charcoal, incense and an intense lavender note. The tannins kick in following the full-bodied, massive mouthfeel, as well as the acidity. This wine will need to be forgotten for 8-10 years, which is somewhat atypical for a Janasse Chateauneuf du Pape. It can be consumed over the following three-plus decades. An absolutely brilliant wine, as are all of these in the Janasse portfolio. Robert Parker

Part 1 of the final and main event for the Fall WNH. The most spectacular lineup of wines I’ve ever seen, and an overall wonderful ending to an amazing trip with fantastic people. En mag and insane. So ripe and rich...and definitely young! Wow. Baked blueberry pie, fresh squeezed blackberries, cassis, and dark cocoa on the nose. Massive on the palate with dark fruit, licorice, and dates. Only toward the end did I get an herbal spice on the finish. Probably the best CdP I’ve ever tasted. Killer, @Mike R !

Incredible bottle of wine one. Parker rated 100 and I concur. I scored its 9.8 because it's still a baby. Decanted 4 hours prior to dinner. Paired with Foie Gras Torchon. Deep blackberry and black currant fruit was perfect match for Foie. Amazing wine! Thank God I have 2 left!!
